Willy Ghayus Alexander Lasut (28 January 1926: 175 - 4 April 2003) was a military officer and governor of North Sulawesi. His tenure as Governor of North Sulawesi was abruptly terminated after only 16 months in office.: 28 No official explanation was given, but during his time as governor, many of his actions were deemed disloyal to the central government.: 126 He enacted a plan that raised the price of the local commodity of cloves to 17.500 Rupiah.: 50 This greatly increased the livelihoods of local producers, but angered those outside of the province who were receiving "dividends" from clove sales.: 29 Lasut refused to resign and protested his dismissal by not attending the swearing in of his replacement. Lasut died on 4 April 2003 and was buried in the Kalibata Heroes Cemetery in Jakarta.
Lasut's brother, Arie Lasut, is a National Hero who was killed during the Indonesian National Revolution. His great-grandson is Dougy Mandagi of the Australian indie rock band The Temper Trap and wrote the sleeper hit Sweet Disposition
