Businesslike generals

Two Indonesian generals sacked over the November 12 army massacre in East Timor are using their new-found free time to study management in the United States, the Indonesian magazine Editor said on May 5.

Major-General Sintong Panjaitan, who commanded the Udayana region, which includes East Timor, has already left for Harvard Business School.

The magazine said Brigadier-General Rudolf Warouw planned to study business administration in the US after finishing an English course in Jakarta.

The two were relieved of their posts after the army fired into a crowd of mourners, killing up to 180 people.
