The dispute within the Surakarta Hadiningrat Palace in Surakarta took a new twist on Monday when supporters of a rival prince broke into the palace complex claiming that they had come to save the palace's sacred relics and dignity.
Flanked by hundreds of his supporters, His Highness Kanjeng Gusti Pangeran Haryo Tedjowulan demanded to meet his brother, His Highness Hangabehi.
"I want to see my brother, without other relatives' involvement. I want to see him alone," Tedjowulan said in Kori Kamandungan, the palace's main gate.
