Jakarta Post November 8.

MEDAN (JP):Police are still looking for logging boss Adelin Lis, whose whereabouts have been unknown since he was acquitted of corruption by a court here on Monday.

His acquittal has caused a furor among environment and legal activists across the nation, while the Medan Police want to question him in relation to a new set of charges.

National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Sisno Adiwinoto said Wednesday the police were still pursuing Adelin and that he should be banned from leaving the country.

However, he said he had ordered his men to search widely.
Moreover, the North Sumatra Police have formally placed Adelin on their most-wanted list, the DPO.

"As of Wednesday we have officially placed him on the DPO," he said.(Apriadi Gunawan) -->
