Another shooting incident occurred in Jayapura, Papua, on Saturday, highlighting the fragile security situation in the region, which was recently gripped by a shooting incident in Skouw-Wutung that led to the ongoing closure of the Indonesia-Papua New Guinea border.
The shooting occurred as T. Sinaga and his family were travelling from Abepura, Jayapura, to their home in Arso, a district in Keerom regency which is around 40 kilometers from Abepura, at around 8:30 p.m. local time, on Saturday.
Together with his wife and their child, Sinaga who is a teacher in Arso Swakarsa was on his way home when their vehicle was shot at in a location around 17 kilometers from Abepura. A bullet hit the right-hand side of the rear of his car.
“We were just at kilometer 9 of the Abepura-Arso road when we suddenly heard shooting. I kept driving fast. Following the sound of the shots, I felt that our car had been hit by stones,” Sinaga told The Jakarta Post. He said his car seemed to have been shot from the right side of the road.
Sinaga said the road between Abepura and Arso was very quiet that night. “Usually, only every 500 meters or so will you pass another vehicle but on that night, we only saw another vehicle after driving for around 5 kilometers,” he said, adding that he reported the incident to the Koya police precinct.
Jayapura Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Alfred Papare said the police were still investigating the incident and had questioned Sinaga and his family.
“Currently, the Jayapura deputy police chief is leading a team to carry out an investigation at the incident site,” he told the Post. (ebf)

Ambassador Blake said his six-day visit was part of his continuing travel across Indonesia to engage local leaders, businesses, civil society and students to advance cooperation and partnership with the US.
“I discussed with senior government, religious, tribal, police and military personnel the importance of respecting everyone’s rights to freely and peacefully express themselves. We also discussed benefits that would come from increasing access for international journalists to visit Papua,” the ambassador said.
During the trip, he traveled to the provinces of Papua and West Papua to meet with government officials, civil society leaders and alumni of Indonesia-US exchange programs. He also visited US government-supported programs on HIV-AIDS control, marine biodiversity protection, and healthcare service improvements.
Blake attended an agreement signing ceremony between Jayapura Regent Mathius Awoitauw and representatives from a puskesmas (community health center) in Dosay on June 10. The agreement outlines actions to be taken to improve services at the puskesmas in Dosay.
Through the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the US government is providing support to the clinic in form of training to strengthen public health services, with a special focus on maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis.
“The US is proud to support programs to improve the lives of Papuans. Through USAID, we partner with national and local governments, community leaders, the private sector, religious and community leaders on health, education, good governance, forest conservation and climate change programs. In 2013, the US invested US$10 million in development programs in Papua and West Papua,” said Blake.
He also met with the Papua governor and the province’s military commander and police chief on the sidelines of the trip.
“I welcomed an improved performance on human rights in Papua by security forces and emphasized the need for sustained progress on this vital issue,” Blake continued. (ebf)
