Jayapura, Jubi – A number of Lukas Enembe volunteers, led by Alberto
Wanimbo, went to the Indonesian National Human Rights Commission
(Komnas HAM). A group of volunteers who call themselves as
Representatives of the Mass Frontiers of Mass Rally in Entire Land of
Papua come to Komnas HAM RI office on Monday (September 25).

The arrival of this group to urge Komnas HAM to convey the government
to immediately stop all forms of criminalization to Papua Governor,
Lukas Enembe.

“On the 19th we did a big demonstration in six cities in Papua. The
essence of the demo is to ask the government to stop all forms of
criminalization on Lukas Enembe who is the best son of Papua at this
time, “said Wanimbo who is the Head of Luke Enembe Volunteer Team
Volume II, after delivering their complaint.

He reiterated that post-meeting between Governor Lukas Enembe and Head
of BIN, National Police Chief and North Sumatra Police Chief, Irjenpol
Paulus Waterpauw and Lukas Enembe’s summons as a witness in the case
of corruption of scholarship fund, indicate a criminalization effort
on the governor.

“The current criminalization could happen in the future to other
Papuan leaders,” Wanimbo added.
He alluded to the evidence that was not strong in the investigation of
scholarship fund case.
“But the investigation seems to be forced. This gives the impression
there is a political motive in the investigation,” he said.

The arrival of this group to Komnas HAM RI was received by Komnas HAM
Commissioner Natalius Pigai. According to Pigai, he has communicated
with National Police Chief Gen. Tito Karnavian. The Police, said
Pigai, only perform the duties as law enforcement.

“The case of the alleged corruption is under investigation on
collecting evidence and initial information,” explained Pigai.

In fact, he continued, before the big demonstration that occurred on
the 19th, the case of Lukas Enembe has been completed in the police.

“The National Police Chief told Komnas HAM that the investigation
could be continued or also not. Police are also monitoring the
dynamics that occur in Papua, “said Pigai. (*)
