TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati has decided to remove Rafael Alun Trisambodo from his position and duties at the ministry's Directorate General of Taxes. Rafael's removal is related to the alleged assault committed by his son, Mario Dandy Satriyo.

"I asked today that [Rafael] be removed from his position and duties.
