Jayapura, Jubi – The biggest challenge to the Regional Regulation on Liquor Restriction is its implementation, an observer at the Cenderawasih University, Marinus Yaung, said.
“It’s good on paper. The points are clear, but how to implement it is the challenge,” he told Jubi in Jayapura on Thursday (07/04).
Yaung said the biggest protectors of liquors distribution in Papua are from the Military and Police. As long as the Military and Police are not involved in the signing of the Pact of Integrity, he believed the implementation would never succeed.
“So, I ask the Papua Governor to call the Military and Police to participate in the signing of the Pact of Integrity to ensure the implementation of restriction could be running well and optimal, “ he said.
Further, he explained, if not it would become a business in Papua. Therefore it needs a commitment from the Police/Military officials in Papua to dismiss their personnel who involved as back up or distributors.
“Such threat would make the Military personnel or police officers in field to stop their act to back up the crime related to the distribution of liquors in Papua,” he said.
He gave an example: Waena traffic life, this place is very crowded from the morning till night, while it is located next to the Military housing which is supposed to be calm. “But why in the Military complex, people are always crowded from the morning till night? This place is a location of people selling the liquors. This is a real example that both military and police personnel are backing up the distribution of liquors,” said Yaung.
Five hundreds of people joined in the Coalition of Youths and Students and the Coalition of Papua Community held rally in front of the Papua Governor Office to challenge the Governor Lukas Enembe to prove his commitment eradicating liquors in Papua.
“We do not need promises or regulations but the real act. We need the real act” said protest coordinator Nelius Wenda in his oration in front of the Papua Governor Office.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of Papua Legislative Council Yunus Wonda in his speech said the restriction against the production, circulation and distribution of liquors in Papua was officially started. “The previous regulation about the restriction was established in 2004. Then in 2009, we invited the Papua Police to made presentation based on the actual cases that almost every years many Papuans died because of the liquors which triggered the traffic accidents, abuses and domestic violence,” said Wonda.

Ramandey: International mechanisms can help to settle Papuan past human violations
Jayapura, Jubi – Head of Papua Human Rights Commission (Komnas HAM) representative office, Frits Ramandey said that it is possible for human rights issues in Papua to be solved based on international mechanisms.
However, he said, as long as national mechanism is working, international mechanisms must respect and should not interven the process.
“But the intervention is very likely to happen in various international forums, for example some countries give their view of human rights issues in Indonesia, especially Papua in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) forum,” Frits told Jubi on Monday (December 8).
According to him, that was an example of international mechanism, and possible political intervention in such forum is unavoidable. Besides, both victims and other parties need the support of international mechanisms.
“For example, in 2017 some people referred to Papua journalists report in the media, for example, Jubi was a reference for various countries, especially embassies, such as Franciscan report, which provide basis for intervention, (in this way) the international mechanism is very possible.”
Furthermore, Frits said that periodical report from National Human Rights Commission (KOMNAS HAM) on human rights development and enforcement in Indonesia can be a fresh reminder for Indonesia has ratified several international instruments.
Related to the Paniai case, he hopes that the newly appointed TNI Commander will give TNI members a chance to be questioned.
“KOMNAS HAM Adhoc team needs to ask for information related to TNI involvement (in the case). If they fail to cooperate with Komnas HAM official letters such as the police, the credibility of TNI institutions will be ruin, as Indonesia is included in international human rights mechanism,” he said.
Previously Papuan legislator John NR Gobai said he supports international mechanism used for Papua human rights settlement. According to him, so far the central government has been acting indifferent.
“But the question is whether Indonesia government would gives permission or is willing, because international mechanism need government need support to be implemented,” said Gobai.
He said, it is possible to solve the problem of Papuan human rights with international mechanism but it is still rely on Indonesian government cooperation.
Governor regulation on Papua human rights
Related to the provincial mechanisms to settle past human rights cases, Frits Ramandey said that Papua’s governor regulation regarding human rights has not been realized. It is still stumbles in Legal Bureau of Papua Province.
Papuan governor, Lukas Enembe, according to Frits is committed to the regulation. He even had assigned Assistant I, Doren Wakerkwa (to be incharge) and Doren had given the governor guidance to the Legal Bureau of Papua Province Regional Secretariat.
“Komnas HAM has institutionalized the draft of its gubernatorial regulation,” said Frits to Jubi, Monday (December 8).
He questions the reason behind Legal Bureau lack of responses, while governor has ordered it. If there are any records related to the draft, it should be conveyed to Komnas HAM for correction.
“The Legal Bureau in some forums with the Minister of Political, Legal and Human Rights, expressed their commitment to resolve the human rights cases, but unfortunately the Bureau of Law is still lack of cooperatiion,” he said.
He said that Komnas HAM had coordinated with Head of Legal Bureau several times, but gets no respond. Frits note that it is important to remembe Act No. 21 of 2001 on Special Autonomy of Papua that was born because there were demands for solving human rights problems. (*)
