JAKARTA - A Singaporean management consulting company is suing the children of Indonesia's former president, Suharto, seeking millions in compensation as well as land in a case thought to have hastened the loss of one of the former ruling clan's prized businesses.

In early March, privately-owned Mitora filed suit in a South Jakarta court seeking 584 million rupiah (S$53,800) in compensation for "illegal acts", as well as 20ha of land and buildings located in Taman Mini Indonesia Indah - a vast Suharto-era amusement park in East Jakarta. The suit also seeks property in the upscale Jakarta neighbourhood of Menteng.
