A former top Indonesian state intelligence official went on trial Thursday for allegedly ordering the murder of the country's most prominent human rights activist four years ago. Retired army Gen. Muchdi Purwoprandjono, 60, was arrested in June on charges of involvement in the poisoning of Munir Thalib, who died of an arsenic overdose in September 2004 on a flight from Jakarta to Amsterdam aboard the state airline, Garuda. Purwoprandjono could face the death sentence if found guilty of ordering the murder.
