Dutch Court will let Indonesian President be

A Dutch court rejected a separatist group's bid Wednesday to have Indonesia's president arrested for alleged human rights violations during a visit to the Netherlands, reported the New York Times.

Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will not be arrested by the Dutch government for canceling a state visit at the last minute.

The Hague District Court will give a detailed explanation of its decision by next week, reported the Washington Post.

Yudhoyono's visit would have been the first in 40 years by an Indonesia president to the country's previous colonial master.

It is not certain if Yudhoyono will reschedule his visit.
