LONDON, November 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, in a letter to Mr David Green CB QC, Director of the Serious Fraud
Office, Elza Syarief, lawyers for Mr Hutomo Mandala Putra (known as Mr Tommy
Suharto, the youngest son of Suharto, the former President of Indonesia)
stated categorically that he did not, and has never, received monies or a car
from Rolls-Royce and nor did he recommend their engines to Garuda, as alleged.

Over the past year there have been a series of press reports in the UK media
which have repeated an erroneous allegation that, more than 20 years ago,
Tommy Suharto, had received $20 million and a Rolls-Royce car from Rolls Royce
in return for persuading the national airline, Garuda, to order Rolls-Royce
Trent 700 engines.These accusations are false and have arisen, it appears,
via internet comments posted by an ex-employee, not through any formal source.
In addition, the SFO has not contacted Rolls Royce, Garuda or Mr Suharto and
there is no legal case or investigation, pending or otherwise, in relation to
these false allegations.
