1) Chairperson of People’s Representative Council of Papua : Do not underestimate the Issue of Puncak Jaya

Deerd Tabuni, Chairperson of Papua House of Representative (Jubi)

Jayapura , 28/1 ( Jubi ) – Chairperson of People’s Representative Council of Papua, Deerd Tabuni, disagree with other parties in giving a judgment on the issue of Puncak Jaya as not important.
“I disagree if there are those who consider the incidents of Puncak Jaya as the unimportant issue. Puncak Jaya is currently becoming the international spotlight. The issue out there was not the ordinary case,” Deerd Tabuni said to the reporter via his cellphone, Tuesday (28/1).
According to him, the series of incidents lately occured in Puncak Jaya was not the issue of tribal or security distraction, but it is more about the ideology issue.
“We must resolve it together instead starting attack each other. The army and police also are supposed to be able to restraint. The problem was started with the oblivion of the police officers that lose their weapon seized by the armed group. And now the weapons turn to be a treat for the community and the police as well,” he said.
Tabuni asked the Army and Police to restraint and not make this problem broadly improved. They should stop chasing so that people would not have more fear.
“Now the local community is living in fear. If the army and police want chasing the want Liberation Army, they should not put the community in fear. The army and police officers are supposed to able to be restraint,” he said.
The Deputy Chief of Papua Police, Drs. Paulus Waterpauw, said the police officers and army in Puncak Jaya were not chasing the group who broke the law. They just did the law enforcement.
“Law enforcement must be done, because they have broke the law. They stole the state weapon and killed people including the members of army and police,” said the deputy. (Jubi/Arjuna/P.Maizier)  
2) Asylum-seeker inquiry: secrecy needed to keep Indonesia ties, says commander
Friday 31 January 2014

A Senate inquiry has been warned that relations between Australia and Indonesia could be damaged by the disclosure of documents relating to asylum-seeker boat interceptions.
The immigration minister, Scott Morrison, and the Operation Sovereign Borders commander, Lieutenant-General Angus Campbell, are giving evidence before an inquiry into government secrecy over border protection operations.
It is the first time a minister from parliament's lower house has fronted a Senate inquiry since 1992.
The Senate's legal and constitutional affairs committee is examining the government's public interest immunity claim to deny the upper house access to official documents.
Campbell warned the disclosure of certain documents could undermine international cooperation and agreements.
"The documents requested relate to operational matters that I believe should not be disclosed," he told a hearing of the inquiry in Canberra on Friday. "These documents may impact upon Australia's relations with foreign states and damage those relationships."
Campbell also believed it was too early to provide more information on the 22 boat arrivals that took place in the early phase of the operation, which started on 18 September.
Operation Sovereign Borders would not have achieved the objectives it had without a limit on the information it released publicly, he said. "We would not be where we are today," Campbell said.
There have been no boat arrivals since 19 December.
The Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young quizzed the customs boss, Michael Pezzullo, about what happened to asylum seekers who were in the department's custody at sea but not transferred to an immigration detention centre, presumably because their boat had been turned or towed back to Indonesian waters.
"Your question is an attempt to speak about operational matters covered by the public interest immunity," Pezzullo said.
To discuss in detail operations conducted since 19 December invited him to potentially breach the public interest immunity claim, he said.
By way of implication it asked him to talk about how asylum seekers who had been intercepted, but not detained, had been handled. "It's an indirect way to breach the claim of immunity and I'm not prepared to do that," he said.
