Soekarno chest that night may not high chest when he said “my heart is where your chest” to Malaysia. Early morning, March 11, 1966 in Bogor Palace, FN-46 pistols were pointed at Gen. Basuki Rachmat to the president’s chest. Sukarno was forced to sign a letter in a pink folder.
In ‘They hold up Sukarno’, First Lieutenant (Lt.) Sukardjo Wilardjito, the presidential guard on guard that night, admitted immediately revoke his gun. However, Sukarno’s bodyguards told to put it back into its sheath.
While reading the contents of the text in a red folder, he said, Soekarno had to ask “Why, why his dictum; military dictum, not dictum presidency!” Reflexively, Sukardjo said, he saw the manuscript. Letterhead, he said, no presidential seal. He would look at the Headquarters of the Army letterhead (Army Headquarters) on the left side of the letter.
“To change the time is very narrow. Sign alone, my lord. “Bismillah,” said Basuki Rachmat, accompanied by Brig Amirmachmud, Brigadier General Joseph M and M Panggabean.
The letter, later known as the Decree of March 11, 1966 (Supersemar) was finally signed by Sukarno. Fourth General Suharto’s messenger then took the letter with happy. After the incident, immediately Sukarno warned Sukardjo.
“You have to get out of the palace, and you should be careful,” said Sukarno message Sukardjo mimicked the time.
And sure enough, shortly after the incident, Sukardjo disarmed by force Kostrad and RPKAD for later arrested. He was jailed by the New Order without trial for 14 years. While detained, he received torture, such as electric shocks and forced to confess to dozens of times PKI.

Due to the horrendous confession broke out in 1998 after the reform, the Sukardjo could face legal proceedings on charges of spreading false news. However, he managed to escape the law because the allegations are not proven.
