1) Governor Refuses Additional Troops in Papua
Saturday, 02 March, 2013 | 02:07 WIB
TEMPO InteractiveJakarta:Newly elected Papua governor—elected on January 29—Lucas Enembe believes that adding military troops in Papua will not solve the security issues in the area. “Based on my experience, the more incoming troopers, the more ‘welcome’ they’ll get from [armed groups],” said Lucas during a discussion entitled: The Expansion of Papua at Sari Pan Pacific Hotel in Jakarta on Tuesday, February 26.

Lucas said repressive actions by the army would not settle security issues in Papua. The Indonesian National Army’s (TNI) military operations have been unable to quell the armed group resistance. One of the reasons is Papua’s geographical landscape—the island is mainly covered with dense forest, difficult for the TNI to navigate, but easily accessible for locals.

Additional army troops will also mean additional weapons. Lucas said that it would benefit the armed resistance because they can easily steal the weapons and add them to their inventory. “Nature has trained them to conquer the terrain.”

3) House Seeks to Establish Body to Oversee Police Terror-Busting Unit Densus 88
Jakarta Globe | March 01, 2013
Lawmakers from House of Representatives Commission III are planning a working committee to monitor the performance of the National Police’s counterterrorism unit, Densus 88.

“The intention is to accommodate the people’s criticisms relating to the handling of terrorism. ... The working committee will also ask that the counterterrorism action be conducted transparently and accountably,” said Al Muzzammil Yusuf, deputy chairman of Commission III, which oversees legal affairs.

The Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) member said that while he and his colleagues support the fight against terrorism, he called on the authorities to uphold the presumption of innocence, the national constitution and human rights.

“We certainly support the fight against terrorism. But we don’t want to see Densus 88’s actions become counterproductive and to ignite public anger,” he said.

He added that Densus 88’s handling of terrorist suspects was worrying, with the organization allegedly committing serious human rights violations with wrongful arrests and the killing of innocent people.

Muzzammil accused the National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) and the National Police headquarters of condoning Densus 88’s actions.

“Based on [government regulations], these two institutions should have audited Densus 88’s performance and ... [brought to justice] those in the field who have committed inhumane [actions],” he said.

He said that the public has not seen any action from either institutions over Densus 88’s performance.

“We think that BNPT and the National Police headquarters tend to condone human rights violations that were committed by Densus 88. 

“That’s why we could understand why some people in the public wanted to see Densus 88 disbanded,” Muzzammill said.

Previously, Komnas HAM vice chairman M. Nukhoiron alleged that Densus 88 had committed serious human rights violations.
