Jayapura, Jubi – Lukas Enembe (LE) was made a suspect of violating Tolikara regional election. It is seen as having political interests ahead of Papua provincial election in the upcoming 2018.

One of the leaders of Democrats Party in Papua, Yunus Wonda considered the case was heavily politicized. He said, since it is related to provincial governor election all things are linked to shake the position of Lukas Enembe as one of the strong candidates.

“I see this because it associates with politics.This is related to his statement in Kanggime, Tolikara District during regional election campaign. He was present there as a chairman of the party (Democrat). It will be different if he is not in the position of party chairman,” said Wonda, on Monday (July 10).

According to him, Lukas Enembe present in Tolikara at the time was just fine, especially because one of the candidates for local head is a cadre of the Democratic Party and carried by the party.

“He is the chairman of the party; he did not come to suggest who to choose. But since most people hope that he would continue to the second period, he convey to the people that if they want LE to be in two periods, choose Usman,” he said.

He considered the mistake of Lukas Enembe is because he will run for the second term of Papua Governor. As a result, he suspects there are parties who are trying to find a gap to destabilize the former Puncak Jaya regent.

“It’s only for political purposes, but we will not remain silent, we will prepare a team of lawyers,” he said.

Papua Police Chief Inspector General Rafli Amar, who is also the Head of the Integrated Law Enforcement Investigator (Gakkumdu) of Papua, said that Gakkumdu Tolikara established Lukas Enembe as a suspect in the alleged violation of the Tolikara regional election.

“The file of his criminal offense has been transferred to the prosecutor’s office, and the revocation of the complaint letter is required to talk to Gakkumdu, because it is not only the police who are in Sentra Gakumdu,” Boy Rafli said in Papua Brimob Square, Jayapura City on Monday (July 10).

According to him, the revocation of a complaint letter by one of the candidates of Tolikara Head of Region not long ago did not immediately stop the investigation process, because the case was an election crime, not a complaint.

Earlier, Papua Governor Lukas Enembe was reported by one of Tolikara Regent candidate’s partner, Amos Yikwa, for alleged regional election criminal.

In the process, however, Amos Yikwa, along with Papuan Governor Lukas Enembe has signed a peace statement dated June 19, 2017.

“Amos is family and has been settled in kinship, so he pulls out this report,” Lukas Enembe said in an opportunity.

Lukas also mentions Amos has using Democratic Party to go as candidate in Tolikara. Moreover his deputy, Robeka Enembe is a family of the Governor of Papua.

“Yesterday we met and he just said that he will withdraws.

Earlier, Papua Governor Lukas Enembe was reported by Gakkumdu to the Papua Police, due to alleged campaigning violation on a calm day on May 14, 2017 or 3 days ahead of re-voting (PSU).

In his campaign before Tolikara community, Lukas Enembe asked the community to again choose Usman Wanimbo, as the Regent of Tolikara in the re-election.(*)

Jayapura, Jubi – Human Rights National Commission (KOMNAS HAM) Papua Representative said people should not underestimate the Amnesty International (AI) because the agency is quite influential in the United Nations.

Ramandey’s statement was related to the launched of AI’s report ‘Sudah, Kasi Tinggal Dia Mati: Pembunuhan dan Impunitas di Papua (Fine, Let them all died: Killing and Impunity in Papua)’ on 2 July 2018 in Jayapura.

The Amnesty International reports since January 2010 to 2018, the Indonesian security forces killed 95 people in both provinces of Papua and West Papua, which 69 victims killed without legal consent, and 85 were indigenous Papuans. However, the report has reaped the reaction from the police and military.

“AI is very influential in the decisions taken in the UN Human Rights Council, especially related to the human rights cases,” Ramandey told Jubi on Friday (6/7/2018).

Further, he said it should consider that the Amnesty International, which has 72 offices around the world, is the only institution received the accreditation from the UN to provide views on the alleged human rights violations.

“This is a good practice for the state to improve the legal system and litigation. A mechanism, a dynamic that the Indonesian Government—not only the police and military—should consider. The government must give a good response,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Director of LP3BH (Research, Study and Legal Assistance of Manokwari) said both civil and military officers in Indonesia have the custom to rebut over the report without sufficient data and investigation results of proper standards and methodologies. It often leads to polemical lies in public. “It could also lead to ignorance among Indonesians including Papuans about questionable legal facts in order obtaining fair, transparent and accountable information.” (*)

Jayapura, Jubi – Papuan legislator from Yahukimo, Yalimo and Pegunungan Bintang electoral districts Natan Pahabol questioned the funds allocated for the airport construction in Panggama Sub-district Yahukimo.

He said the Papua Provincial Government allocated Rp 11.95 billion in 2016 to renovate the Panggama Airport. The amount of Rp 9.56 billion has disbursed to the contractor in the fiscal year 2017. In the same year, the contractor began to work on the former airport that was built by missionaries from the European Evangelical Agency around 1972-1973 in collaboration with the GKI Synod in Tanah Papua under the leadership of the Rev. Adam Roth.

“After that, the work discarded and until now the airport has not finished. So when it rains so heavy, the airport is flooded. By this year it cannot be used,” said Pahabol to Jubi on Friday (6/7/2018).

Further, he said during this time, the local community, especially the church workers from GKI Yalimo and Anggruk depend on this airport for their only access in and out of the region by using the small-bodied aircraft. Now, their access has obstructed due to the construction.

“We are questioning to the Public Works Office, who’s responsible for the airport’s construction? The airport is for the public access, so we hope the office could immediately find out who the contractor is?” he said.

Another Papuan legislator, John NR Gobai said it is not just the Panggama Airport but infrastructure development in some areas, especially in Papua has not finished for years. “For instance, Karang Tumarisita Bridge in Nabire District. It has not finished for three years, and it’s a responsibility of the government agency,” he said. (*)
