1) Indonesian crackdown deepens in West Papua
Sunday, October 14, 2012
Indonesia has further intensified its repression of West Papuan independence activists, in an apparent response to independence leaders speaking to foreign media.
Eight independence activists from the West Papua National Committee (KNBP) were arrested in Wamena on September 29 and accused of bomb-making and treason, West Papua Media (WPM) said on September 30. The operation involved the notorious Australian funded and trained Detachment 88 anti-terrorist unit.
WPM said “many detainees [were] subjected to brutal beatings and on-the-spot interrogations by security forces according to independent witnesses”.
KNBP leader Victor Yeimo told ABC's 7.30 on October 4 that Indonesia was framing the activists to justify the security forces' ongoing brutality in the region.
“This is how Indonesia is now making a scenario with the terrorist issue in West Papua,” Yeimo told ABC's 7.30. “As you know that in West Papua we never know how to make a bomb, how to create bomb.”
Although the KNBP has no history of violence, security forces recently blamed it for a wave of mysterious shootings,. Many believe they were carried out on behalf of authorities to justify a crackdown. KNBP leader Mako Tabuni was assassinated during the crackdown and later accused of planning the shootings.
Ferry Marisan of human rights group Elsham told the Jakarta Globe on October 1: “[The evidence] must have been fabricated by police, they placed the explosives in the office so the police would have a reason to arrest them ...
“If we observed [the KNBP's] activities in Papua until the death of Mako Tabuni, they never staged violent acts, let alone kept firearms or explosives.”
Colonel David Darko of the National Liberation Army (TPN) ― the armed wing of the Papuan independence movement ― told SuaraPapua.com on October 2 that the TPN had no involvement in any bombings.
Indonesian MPs pushed for a further crackdown when the parliament's House Commission I, which oversees defence, pushed the government to endorse any efforts by the military to stop the West Papuan independence movement, the Jakarta Post said on October 4.
This was justified on the grounds that the military is responsible for protecting the “sovereignty and integrity of the nation”, the Jakarta Post said.
Indonesian security forces have been emboldened by the lack of repercussions from the August 7.30 report that brought mainstream attention in Australia to the activities of Detachment 88. The Australian government has done nothing to curb Detachment 88's brutality, despite providing millions of dollars worth of funding and training to the unit.
Instead, the Australian government has played its usual role of providing political cover for Indonesia's abuses.
Australia and other Western powers have played this role since West Papua was taken over by Indonesia in 1963, after former colonial ruler the Netherlands withdrew. West Papua has suffered mass exploitation of its people and natural resources at the hands of Indonesian and Western businesses.
Indonesia's brutal mistreatment of the Papuan people has led to broad support for independence. However, Indonesia is unwilling to loosen its grip on the area and has continually responded with more repression. Even the most basic expressions of independence are treated harshly.
A recent example was when an independence rally in Manokwari was attacked by army soldiers and Brimob paramilitary police on October 2, WPM said on October 4.
More than 1000 people rallied to support the visit to the United Nations of West Papua National Authority diplomat Herman Wainggai and to reject the failed “Special Autonomy” program in West Papua. Special Autonomy was introduced in 2001 to placate growing calls for independence, but has resulted in no real boost to democracy or living standards.
During the march, hundreds of people unfurled banned Morning Star flags ― the symbol of West Papuan independence ― sparking the attack from security forces, who fired indiscriminately and used tear gas. Many protesters were badly beaten.
Peaceful political leaders are also targeted. Former KNBP chairperson Buchtar Tabuni was sentenced to eight months in jail for vandalising the prison in which he was held, Bintang Papua said on September 24. Tabuni ― who had previously been jailed as a political prisoner ― was arrested in June for organising “anarchic” protests – in reality, protests that were attacked by security forces.
Lawyer Gustav Kawar told Bintang Papua on September 25 that Tabuni would appeal on the grounds that the police and army had put pressure on the judges and that witnesses had given contradictory evidence.
Signs look worrying for the future of the independence movement. On top of the ongoing repression, Indonesia continues to build its military power in the area. Arms deals with the US and Britain are reportedly in progress and JPNN.com said on October 3 that plans were under way to station 15,000 marines in Sorong in north-east West Papua.
However, there are small signs that the impunity is cracking. The New Zealand Superannuation Fund dropped its investments in mining company Freeport McMoRan due to its notorious activities at the Grasberg mine in West Papua, Radio New Zealand International said on September 26. Freeport has directly funded sections of the security forces to clamp down on dissent against the company.

2) Letter from the Chairman Related Scenarios BOM KNPB Wamena in Wamena
October 14, 2012 By: admin Category: Documents, Press Release
Simion Dabi / Chairman KNPB Wamena
On 20 September 2012, I Simeon Dabi, chairman of KNPB Balim in Jayapura-Wamena and received a call from the visible Reskrim Siswanto Agus Supriadi related bombing cases occurring in two places, namely the Postal traffic cop, the Irian, Wamena and in the House of the Honorary Jayawijaya Parliament. I was urged to continue to Wamena. On the 27th I received a call again the second time to quickly arrive at Wamena related bombings in Wamena and after I arrived in Wamena on Friday, September 28, 2012, and so arrive at Wamena airport I was immediately directed to the Chief of Police in order to witness Jayawijaya treason against my colleagues are both Enos Itlay and Semi Sambom arrested July 1, 2012 and related carrying OPM Document.
Once I arrived at my Jayawijaya directly facing visible Reskrim Siswanto Agus Supriadi in his office. I asked a lot about the treason case against two of my colleagues, I was forced to be a witness of my colleagues from the second plot 11.09-15,27 Hours WPB. There are some questions I submitted to them: "Where is the secretariat KNPB today?" Answer me KNPB not have a clear secretariat; "how many members KNPB? I answered all the people of Papua. Do KNPB want memisakan from the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia? My answer is KNPB media people and the people who will decide.
After that I went home. After passing one day later, on Saturday, 29 sebtember 2012, at 17:15 pm. Police with Detachment 88 doing Sweep and Ambush at KNPB Regional Secretariat Baliem-Wamenaa with unclear goals. According to me, sweeping the Secretariat KNPB done because when the bombing incident until I arrived in Wamena officers did not managed to get actors pengboman then that, Adj Puspa told me that time that they would give imbalah to find the bomber.
Until now I was surprised and did not believe it when the police conducted searches can have a BOM in the assembly-secretariat KNPB Wamena Baliem, this is not right!! This proved that the police were not able to get the bomber then KNPB framed by the Chief of Police Jayawijaya Game. A political scenario to trap the people of West Papua civil society, especially in the central highlands of West Papua.
Sweeping and arbitrary arrests of civilians by the TNI / Police Jayawijaya dibeberapat place like Kurulu district, and the district Wosi Kimbim on Sunday, September 30, 2012, at 05.00 Papua time.
To this last condition, the TNI / Police are conducting pursuit Jayawijaya and the arrest of all members of KNPB even during KNPB people throughout the Central Highlands region of West Papua to enter in the villages.
From the brief description above, it is my chief-bBlim KNPB Wamena concluded that some of the questions:
Why does my head KNPB Wamena urged continued from Jayapura to Wamena have linked to bombings in Wamena
What I am concerned kaitanya bombings in Wamena incident while when I was in Jayapura!!!
Why after I arrived in Wamena Jayawijaya invisible force me to have to find the bomber?
After I checked in Jayawijaya through one day later POLRES Jayawijaya conducting searches at the Secretariat KNPB Wamena and the Baliem-how and from where the police can get an explosive?
Are the people of Papua Wamena in particular can design / create a homemade bomb?
TNI / Police Department has made a political scenario in order to trap the West Papua National Committee (KNPB) Balim-Wamena to trap a criminal offense. Police security was the main troublemaker in Wamena, the bomber that occurred in Wamena is the state security actors themselves.
POLICE FORCES OF THE REPUBLIC OF INDONESIA: WHY A STATE SECURITY membutukan? POLICE STATE SECURITY IS THE UNITY OF THE REPUBLIC OF INDONESIA. POLICE IN SIMPLE LANGUAGE COMMONLY CALLED SECURITY. POLICE ALSO OFTEN CALLED THE SECURITY SITUATION vandals??? DUTIES AND FUNCTIONS, THE REPUBLIC OF INDONESIA AS A SECURITY POLICE Or are troublemakers??? ESPECIALLY IN AREAS AROUND WEST PAPUA vandals SECURITY POLICE STATE ACTORS ARE ALWAYS TAKE ACTION OUTSIDE THE PROCEDURE / LAW IN THE STATE KESATUAAN REPUBLIUK INDONESIA (Homeland).
Surat Ketua KNPB Wamena Terkait Skenario BOM di Wamena
October 14, 2012 By: admin Category: Dokumen, Pers Release
Simion Dabi/Ketua KNPB Wamena
Pada tanggal 20 September 2012, saya Simeon Dabi, Ketua KNPB Balim-Wamena berada di Jayapura dan menerima telepon dari Kasat Reskrim Agus Supriadi Siswanto terkait kasus peledakan bom yang terjadi di dua tempat yaitu di Pos Polantas, jalan Irian, Wamena dan di Gedung Badan Kehormatan DPRD Kabupaten Jayawijaya. Saya terus didesak untuk segera ke Wamena. Pada tanggal 27 saya menerima telepon lagi yang ke dua kalinya untuk segera tiba di Wamena terkait kasus pengeboman di Wamena dan setelah saya tiba di Wamena pada hari Jumat, 28 September 2012 , dan begitu tiba di bandara Wamena saya langsung diarahkan ke Kapolres Jayawijaya agar menjadi saksi makar terhadap kedua rekan saya yaitu Enos Itlay dan Semi Sambom yang ditangkap 1 Juli 2012 lalu terkait membawa Dokumen OPM.
Setelah saya tiba di Polres Jayawijaya saya langsung menghadap Kasat Reskrim Agus Supriadi Siswanto di ruang kerjanya. Saya ditanya banyak seputar kasus makar terhadap dua rekan saya, saya dipaksa untuk harus menjadi saksi makar kedua rekan saya dari Jam 11.09-15,27 WPB. Ada beberapa pertanyaan yang disampaikan kepada saya diantaranya; “Dimana sekertariat KNPB saat ini ?” Jawab saya KNPB belum punya sekertariat yang jelas; “berapa jumlah anggota KNPB ? Jawab saya semua rakyat Papua. Apakah KNPB mau memisakan diri dari Negara Kesatuan Republik Indonesia ? Jawab saya KNPB adalah media rakyat dan rakyat yang akan menentukannya.
Setelah itu saya pulang. Setelah lewat satu hari kemudian,pada hari sabtu , 29 sebtember 2012, jam 17.15 sore. Kapolres bersama Densus 88 melakukan Penyisiran dan Penyergapan di Sekertariat KNPB Wilayah Baliem-Wamenaa dengan tujuan tidak jelas. Menurut saya, penyisiran terhadap Sekretariat KNPB dilakukan Karena saat kejadian pengeboman sampai saat saya tiba di Wamena aparat tidak berhasil mendapat pelaku pengboman maka itu, Kasat menyatakan kepada saya yang terahir kalinya bahwa mereka akan memberikan imbalah untuk mencari pelaku pengeboman.
Sampai saat ini saya heran dan tidak habis pikir bila penyisiran dilakukan aparat polisi bisa mendapat sebuah rakitan BOM di Sekertariat KNPB Balim-Wamena, ini tidak benar !!! ini terbukti bahwa polisi tidak mampu mendapat pelaku pengeboman maka KNPB dijebak dengan PERMAINAN si Kapolres Jayawijaya. Sebuah scenario politik untuk menjebak rakyat Papua Barat terutama masyarakat sipil di pegunungan tengah Papua Barat.
Penyisiran dan penangkapan dengan sewenang-wenang terhadap warga sipil oleh aparat TNI/POLRI Jayawijaya dibeberapat tempat seperti distrik Kurulu, Wosi dan distrik Kimbim pada hari Minggu 30 September 2012, jam 05.00 waktu Papua.
Kondisi terakhir sampai saat ini, aparat TNI/POLRI Jayawijaya sedang melakukan pengejaran dan penangkapan terhadap semua anggota KNPB bahkan masa rakyat KNPB di seluruh Wilayah Pegunungan Tengah Papua Barat sampai masuk di kampung-kampung.
Dari keterangan singkat diatas maka saya ketua KNPB bBlim-Wamena menyimpulkan beberapa pertanyaan bahwa:
Mengapa saya ketua KNPB Wamena didesak terus dari Jayapura untuk harus ke Wamena terkait kasus pengeboman di Wamena
Apa kaitanya saya menyangkut pengeboman yang terjadi di Wamena sedangkan saat kejadian itu saya di Jayapura !!!
Mengapa setelah saya tiba di Wamena kasat Polres Jayawijaya memaksakan saya untuk harus mencari pelaku pengeboman ?
Setelah saya diperiksa di Polres Jayawijaya lewat satu hari kemudian POLRES Jayawijaya melakukan penyisiran di Sekertariat KNPB Balim-Wamena dan bagaiman bisa dan dari mana Polisi mendapatkan sebuah bahan peledak ?
Apakah orang Papua pada khususnya orang Wamena bisa merancang/membuat rakitan bom ?
TNI/POLRI telah melakukan sebuah scenario politik guna menjebak Komite Nasional Papua Barat (KNPB) Balim-Wamena dengan jebakan tindak pidana. Polisi adalah pengacau utama keamanan di Wamena, pelaku pengeboman yang terjadi di wamena aktornya adalah keamanan Negara sendiri.
APARAT KEPOLISIAN REPUBLIK INDONESIA: MENGAPA SUATU NEGARA MEMBUTUKAN KEAMANAN NEGARA ?POLISI ADALAH KEAMANAN NEGARA KESATUAN REPUBLIK INDONESIA. POLISI DALAM BAHASA SEDERHANA SERING DISEBUT KEAMANAN. POLISI SERING JUGA DISEBUT PENGACAU SITUASI KEAMANAN NEGARA ??? TUGAS DAN FUNGSI, KEPOLISIAN REPUBLIK INDONESIA SEBAGAI KEAMANAN ATAUKAH PENGACAU ??? PADA KHUSUSNYA DI SELURUH WILAYAH PAPUA BARAT POLISI ADALAH AKTOR PENGACAU KEAMANAN NEGARA YANG SELALU MENGAMBIL TINDAKAN LUAR PROSEDUR/ HUKUM YANG ADA DI NEGARA KESATUAAN REPUBLIUK INDONESIA (NKRI).
