Jayapura, Jubi – Officials at the Jayapura Municipal Education Office have been accused of blackmailing teachers while administrating their promotions and accreditation, said a teacher on his Facebook account.

“Some fraud has been found related to promotion for many reasons, including target employee and Accreditation Team,” said teacher of SMA 1 Jayapura, Robert Sihombing on his Facebook.

On his Facebook, he further revealed several points of findings, and he stated several culprits who indicated as perpetrators were reportedly replaced to the Papua Provincial Education Office, but they are still taking a role.

At fifth point, Sihombing wrote to teachers who feel being squeezed in this matter to contact him privately through in box or SMS to his mobile +6281248387877.

“Do not let the teachers become the blackmail victims of the education office culprits,” he said. When asked the question from Jubi through Facebook, Robert Sihombing said this practice has occurred for quite long time.

In response to this matter, the Head of Jayapura Municipal Education Office I Wayan Mudiyasa declined the blackmail practice by his subordinates. He advised teachers who feel being blackmail by some education culprits to report it by bringing the authentic evidence in writing.

“We have clarified the case of Mr. Sihombing. He was an administration staff and he might have a good credits. He also should have the Akta 4 certificate. It is a long time case, and it was occurred because he didn’t coordinate with us,” said Wayan on Wednesday (25/5/2016).

He admitted he already confronted all parties related to Robert Sihombing case and it’s over now.

“We help him for his promotion. I asked him to show the culprits that I can take an action if it was proven. I don’t want to harm the teachers and their rights for promotion. I will help all teachers if they were in difficulties,” he said. (Sindung Sukoco/rom)

Jayapura, Jubi – A Papuan legislator Maria Elizabet Kaize said the oil palm investments, especially in the southern region of Papua, have seized the indigenous peoples’ lands and corrupted the education of young Papuans.

Maria Kaize, a native woman from Anim Ha customary area, said oil palm plantations give a negative impact on the indigenous children’s education in the district of Merauke, Boven Digoel and surrounding areas because the school-age Papuans prefer to follow their parents than going to school.

“It is true that the awareness among the school-aged Papuan children, especially in southern areas, for schooling needs to be improved. Many of them prefer to follow their parents in the forest,” Maria Kaize answered some questions from Jubi on Thursday (19/04/2018).

She took Bio area of Boven Digoel District as an example. In this area, many school-aged children join their parents as palm oil workers. Her sister, who is a local teacher, told her about this information.  She further said that the similar thing also happened Genyem and Lereh, Jayapura District, when the oil palm companies just operated in those areas.

“According to a teacher from Genyem whom I met some time ago, they went to the oil palm plantation for looking the children. Maybe this method can be used in some districts in the southern Papua. However, it needs support from the government, customary and church leaders as well as the community,” she said.

When meeting with Hilal Elver, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, a local leader from Keerom, Servius Servo said the transition of community land to oil palm plantation harmed the local people because it rated very cheap.  In fact, in some cases, they changed it with sugar and salt.

“Besides for oil palm plantations, community and sago forests mostly used for road construction and government infrastructure,” Servius said. (*)
