Lawmakers: Bye... (document in bag reads Comparative Study)

Indonesian communities in Germany have reacted angrily to a ‘working visit’ by lawmakers saying that they should focus on domestic problems before conducting so-called ‘comparative studies’. This year alone lawmakers have visited Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Poland, South Africa, Turkey and the US, with little or nothing to show other than mediocre reports, which according to budget watchdog Fitra will cost tax-payers in excess of US$26 million.
