Soeharto family comeback to politics

A familiar name is attempting a political comeback in Indonesia.

Tommy Soeharto, sent to prison for conspiracy to kill a Supreme Court judge, says he plans to lead his party to victory in next year’s elections.

But it’s not just his past he has to fight.

In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera, Soeharto also has to deal with the tarnished reputation of his father.
