President Abdurrahman Wahid refused to appear before a parliamentary panel investigating a corruption scam but said he would reply in writing to any questions it had. The scandal centers on the theft of $4 million from Bulog, the state logistics agency. Wahid's alleged role in the affair has fueled calls for him to step down and undermined confidence in the government's ability to clean up graft in the country. Wahid has denied all knowledge of the affair.
