“I bought this photo a few years ago. At first, I didn’t know what this photo was. I just took a gamble.” Jacob concluded.
He is close to Suharto
Before being executed in Lembang after kidnapping a number of generals, Lieutenant Colonel Untung was known to be close to Suharto.
Soeharto even regarded Untung as a great soldier and worthy of being assigned to strategic locations.
