Legal woes mount for Indonesian media mogul

Tanoesoedibjo claims allegations against him are politically motivated

JAKARTA -- Hary Tanoesoedibjo has built a sprawling media conglomerate, partnered with U.S. President Donald Trump, and hinted at running for the presidency himself in Indonesia's 2019 election.

But in recent weeks, Tanoesoedibjo has been forced to defend himself against a string of allegations of intimidation and corruption. He claims the accusations are politically motivated, and continues to run his business as usual. On Friday, his property development company MNC Land announced that American golfer Phil Mickelson will redesign a golf course in Bali as part of a Trump-branded luxury resort.
