Village funds misappropriated

SEMARANG, Central Java: A local councilor said that the funds under a presidential aid program earmarked for poor villages have been misappropriated by officials.

Deputy chief of Commission A at the Central Java legislative council Djihad Mahya said strong indications are that many officials had embezzled the money for their personal use.

Djihad said that the central government doesn't supervise the use of such funds. (har)
