JAKARTA, March 14, 2013 – As this journal unfolds day by day, I begin to see that these posts are a blend: there is the Michael Dunn version of the day’s events, wherein I do my best to provide a balance of dramatic personal narrative and journalistic objectivity, and then there is the Neil Keenan version, which tends to be hard-hitting, spicy, and requires me to delete more than a few expletives. Here’s the deal, folks: it’s bad boy and choir boy, and you’ll find a bit of both in here. I run the draft past Neil and then we kick it around. This time, in the wake of our crucial day in court, it went something like this:
NEIL: “Serious security issue? C’mon, Michael, they tried to put out a hit on us – just say it!”
MICHAEL: “OK, we can go with that, I guess.”
NEIL: And what’s this where you say “the threat was neutralized”? I called my friends at the top and the bad guys were told they’d have their throats slit if anybody on our team was touched. Put that in there, cause that’s what they were told.
MICHAEL: Wow…that’s really what they said?
NEIL: Yes, and my friends in that world don’t kid around…and we want people to know that.
So, yes, friends, that is one aspect of the work here. The world being what it is, we can often measure our success by how quickly the opposition strikes back. No sooner did our last bulletin hit the web than a “serious security threat” emerged on the eve of Mr. Keenan’s scheduled court appearance on behalf of our friend Nelu. One of the assets that destiny seems to have provided Neil Keenan to aid him in this fight for the freedom of the Global Accounts is a network of powerful friends who hold him in high regard, and who are willing to defend him when necessary. Yesterday it became necessary, and those friends came through for him, and the “threat has been neutralized” as one might say. Our team proceeded to court confident but wary, and our safety was undisturbed.
The security breach revealed in our last post has led Mr. Keenan to bring in Irish security, which certainly feels like a good move.
The day in court yielded mixed results. It seems clear that the judges were impressed with Mr. Keenan’s statement (which had been integrated into the record), and they ruled that Mr. Martha Wibawa (called Nelu) should be freed, based on time served. Unfortunately, Indonesian law permits the prosecutor to object to the sentence, which the prosecutor did at the last moment, for reasons unknown to us. An appeal will be ruled on swiftly in the next few days, and our hopes remain high that Nelu will soon be with us. Another bright spot for Nelu’s family is the unexpected leniency shown by the court for Mr. Mulyadi, Nelu’s father-in-law, who may also soon be free.
The reprise of the Celtic Tiger’s roar (which our team was highly anticipating) did not, unfortunately take place. Neil was ready to speak at length in court, and had been told an opportunity would be given. In the event, however, given the nature of the ruling, the case was essentially complete when we walked in, and it soon became apparent that the judges might have wished to spare themselves the ordeal of a fiery Neil Keenan lecture, fearful, it may be, of the global scope of the issues that might be raised in their court.
I’m sure the rest of us will have the opportunity to hear and see Neil’s story soon, in multiple venues, coming soon to a theater (or a website) near you….
In the meantime, opportunities have arisen for immediate forward movement, without delay, in putting the Global Accounts to work for the world, regardless of the outcome of Nelu’s case. Neil remains focused on the freedom of his friend, however, and we are confident that Nelu will soon be back with his family, and resuming his important work with the Accounts. We will, of course, keep you updated on the progress of the Accounts as details emerge.
Conversations continue with the Qing Dynasty regarding China’s majority assets in the Global Accounts, and the Empress has requested Mr. Keenan’s assistance in overseeing the accounts on the Dynasty’s behalf. We have learned that the Empress can be both strong and compassionate, as plans are in place to make donations throughout the world, both East and West, in some cases to fund needed infrastructure, and, in others, direct aid, such as a planned substantial donation in Mr. Keenan’s name to Indonesia. Much work remains to be done, but it is clear that the Asian nations long dominated and abused by the Western banking oligarchy are reclaiming their heritage. Their freedom means freedom for the planet as well, as we work together to dissolve the old artificial barriers – barriers erected and maintained by the cabal to keep us divided, lest we unite against them.
This morning at breakfast with Neil, I found an English-language magazine on Jakarta nightlife and happened upon an eye-catching article – “St. Patrick’s Day in Jakarta!” Given the glad turn of events – blessed, no doubt, by the prayers of many friends around the world – it is safe to say that Jakarta’s Blarney Stone Pub will be the site of many a song and jig this Sunday, as the Irish celebrate around the world, and our team kicks back with some pints of Guinness, and toasts to the victory of the good fight.
By the way, that’s the Michael Dunn version. The Keenan version goes: “tell them St. Patrick’s Day starts at 9 a.m. and we go all night!”
