Five civilians in Timika have reportedly been arrested , says ULMWP

Jayapura, Jubi – Five civilians in Timika have reportedly been arrested by the newly reactivated military counter-terrorism unit for “aspiring” to West Papuan independence.

“At 10pm on Saturday June 9, Orpa Wanjomal (40) and his stepchild Polce Sugumol (31) were arrested at their home in the SP 2 [housing unit] in Timika,” United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) spokesperson Jakob Rumbiak said yesterday.

“Five hours later, at 3am in the morning, on Sunday June 10, Titus Kwalik was arrested at the SP 10.

“At the same time Julianus Dekme (31) and Alosius Ogolmagai (49) were arrested at Julianus’ house at the SP 6. The five civilians were arrested for aspiring to Papuan independence.”

Rumbiak said that the Joint Special Operations Command (Koopssusgab) was involved in the arrests. The Koopssusgab is a joint military counter-terrorism unit, which was recently reactivated in concert with revisions to the Anti-Terrorism Law, and is under the direct authority of Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.

Commando unit
The commando unit, according to House of Representatives (DPR) Commission I chairperson Abdul Kharis Almasyhari, was formed to assist in dealing with terrorism under certain conditions if the national police request assistance.

According to Almasyhari, under the revisions to the 2003 Anti-Terrorism Law, which were enacted on May 25, there are additional regulations which make it more comprehensive, including the possibility of involving the TNI (Indonesian military) under certain conditions.

“However the Koopssusgab apparently can’t be formed yet because they don’t have a core budget yet,” said Almasyhari.

Nevertheless, the ULMWP is sure that the arrests were carried out by Koopssusgab.

“The use of the special military anti-terrorist force against West Papuan civilians is irresponsible and morally wrong”, said Rumbiak.

The West Papuan people were not terrorists, and had never carried out terrorist acts, unlike Indonesian terrorists or extremists.

The West Papuan people’s right to self-determination is guaranteed under the Indonesian Constitution, the United Nations Human Rights Charter, UN General Assembly Resolution 1514 (1960), the UN Convention on Civil and Political Rights (2007) and UN General Assembly Resolution 1752 Chapters XVII and XII.

Tabloid Jubi has attempted to contact Mimika District Police Chief Assistant Superintendent Agung Marlianto via WhatsApp for clarification of the alleged arrests. As of posting this article however, Marlianto has not responded.

Papua’s legislator: Free from rubella and measles shouldn’t be a media campaign only

Vice-Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau. – Jubi/Arjuna Pademme

Jayapura, Jubi – The Vice Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau warned the provincial government not set a goal for Papuan children to be free from rubella and measles only on media.

She further said it is difficult to actualise this goal if the access to health services including the regular immunisation program has not been optimal since it has not reached remote areas yet.

“There is a query that should be answered immediately before the government’s commitment to free a million of children from the threat of rubella and measles,” said Duwitau on Thursday (7/6/2018).

Furthermore, she said if the Papua Provincial Government really committed to this goal, they should optimise the health services including the regular immunisation program by developing the local health facilities.

Meanwhile, the Head of Papua’s Health Office Aloysius Giyai admitted that this province still has a problem with the regular immunisation program. The participation rate is below 80 per cent in most districts, which is under the national target.

“Even in some districts with high participation rate, the Universal Child Immunisation (UCI) rate is also below 80 per cent,” said Giyai. (*)
