1) Joint team on the hunt  for Papua police killers

thejakartapost.com, Jakarta | Archipelago | Wed, December 30 2015, 12:47 PM - 
The Papua Police have set up a joint team comprising police and military personnel to pursue perpetrators of an armed attack that killed three police officers at the Sinak Police headquarters in Puncak regency, Papua.
“A joint team comprising 50 Mobile Brigade [Brimob] and detective unit personnel has been dispatched to investigate and pursue the shooting perpetrators. Directly supported by commanders of military district commands, the Indonesian Military has also deployed personnel to search for the attackers and prevent such incidents from reocurring,” Papua Police spokesman Patrige Renwarin said as quoted by kompas.com on Wednesday.
Starting their investigation into the Sinak shooting shortly after the incident occurred, Patrige said the joint team had not as yet discovered the whereabouts of the attackers.
“At the site of the attack, the police investigation team found one weapon and a large stockpile of munitions left under stairs at the Sinak Police office building. The weapon belongs to the police office; the armed group apparently didn’t see it,” said Patrige.
He added that the police had taken anticipatory measures by increasing the number of on-guard personnel.
As reported earlier, a number of armed civilians attacked the Sinak Police office in Puncak regency, Papua, on Sunday evening. Three police members, namely First Brig.Ridho, Second Brig.Arman and Second Brig.Ilham, were killed and weapons and munitions were taken. (ebf)

3) LEKHAKA TELENGGEN CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR SINAK POLICE ATTACK
Sinak, JUBI — Lekhaka Telenggen (Leka Telenggen), the chief of the rebel group in Puncak Jaya, said the shootings that killed three policemen in Sinak were carried out by his members.
“I am responsible for this incident. The members and I are cautious in our headquarters to anticipate the counterattack,” Lekhaka told Jubi by phone on Monday (28/12/2015).
According to him, his men attacked the Sinak Police Station on Sunday (27/12/2015) at around 23:00. It killed three police officers, namely Second Brigadier Rasyid (32), Second Brigadier Armansyah (37) and Second Brigadier Ilham (37) and wounded two other officers.
“We also took seven weapons: two AK 47, two SS1 and three Mousers and an ammunition box,” said Lekakha.

Papua Police Deploy Special Forces to Sinai to Back Up Local Officers

Lekhaka Telenggen is often accused as actor behind armed violence in Puncak and Puncak Jaya regencies. In January 2014, he was blamed for the shooting on Battalion Infantry Rider 751 in motorcade led by First Lieutenant Infantry Alafa at Pintu, Mulia Puncak Jaya. He was also blamed for the attack that killed two Mobile Brigade personnel at Illaga, the capital of Puncak Regency in early December 2014.
His name is often associated with Tengamati Telenggen who touted as his son. Both are often associated with West Papua National Liberation Army (TPN-PB) under Goliat Tabuni. However, it is difficult to confirm both are members of TPN-PB.
Although they had those who claimed the attack on Sinak Police Station, the Indonesian Police is still doing investigation on the motive behind the attack that killed three police officers. “The motive is still under investigation,” the Indonesian Police Spokesperson, Inspector General Anton Charliyan told reporter in his office in Jakarta on Monday (28/12/2015).
He explained until now the investigators have not found the evidence related to the shooting perpetrators, so it is too early to say the perpetrators are part of separatist group. “There might have some possibilities, whether it has crime or political motive. It would be revealed once the perpetrators were arrested. The Police could not just assume,” he explained.
Related to the security on the scene, he explained the Indonesian Police Headquarters has deployed their personnel towards Sinak Police Station to investigate the perpetrators as well as the motive of attack. “Team from Headquarters has deployed for back-up,” he added.

Police Expected Be Professional

The attack on Sinak Police Station is feared affecting the civilians in Sinak. The armed conflicts occurred for several times in Puncak and Puncak Jaya regencies were ended with the raids by the security forces.
“The Police should be professional to appoint the perpetrators. There are many groups who support violence in Papua, therefore civilians should not be a target,” Papua legislator from Commission I, Laurens Kadepa said.
According to him, Indonesia, especially Papua, is not yet secured after the presidential election. Although Jokowi and Jusuf Kalla won the election, still there are those who tried to obstruct their mission and vision as the President and Vice President of Indonesia.
“The Police must do the raids to pursue the perpetrators,” said Ruben Magay, another member of Commission I.
In Sinak, further he said, the raids have been conducted for several times because of the armed conflict. The civilians are always becoming the victims. They might move to other places due to the raid by the security forces.
Magay expected the Police could act professional in pursuing the perpetrators on Sinak Police Station attack. The Police, he said, must learn from their previous experience, which they could measure how many personnel is required to pursue the perpetrators.
As politician, both Kadepa and Magay said they are not competent to make conclusion whether the attack was connected with the Jokowi’s plan visit to Papua. (Hengky Yeimo/rom)

4) TASK FORCE SENT TO SINAK AFTER THREE OFFICERS KILLED IN ATTACK ON POLICE STATION
Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Police deployed a Special Force and three platoons of Mobile Brigade to hunt for a rebel group that attacked Sinak Police Station in Puncak Regency, killing three officers.
Papua Police Spokesperson Senior Police Commissioner Patrige Renwarin said three platoons of Mobile Brigade from Timika, Jayapura and Puncak Jaya along with Papua Police Special Force were deployed to the scene to look for the perpetrators “dead or alive.”
The rebel group has an estimated 25 members.

“But we are not certain how many weapons and bullets were taken. We are still expecting the result of scene investigation by team identification,” Renwarin told on Monday.
He said the team has dispatched to the location on Monday morning (28/12/2015). The local Police are also waiting for the investigation result on the scene and local witnesses to confirm the attackers. But he confirmed the attack has not connection with the President Joko Widodo’s visit to Papua in the next few days.
The body of victims would be arrived in Jayapura today around 14:00 Papua time for autopsy at Bhayangkara Police Hospital, Jayapura Municipality before taken to their hometown in Sorong, Tual and Jayapura Municipality.
“The autopsy aims to classify the projectile prototype to identify the perpetrators’ weapon,” he said.
The incident was occurred when five police officers were at their guardian post watching TV. They might be less vigilant at that time because the entire room was already closed. At the same time, one of additional personnel identified as DK who has worked at the local police station about four years ago, quietly opened the back door. The attackers then came through the back door and directly approached the officers and opened fire.
“The first shot hit the Second Brigadier Rian’s hand. He tried to escape through the Chief’s room. He jumped from the window and ran to the Military Sub-district Command (Koramil). The Second Brigadier Dumafa also ran away and had crashed fifteen people standing in front of him. But he managed to escape to Koramil,” he said.
While three officers, said Renwarin, could not make it because they were trapped. The attackers shot them down on the scene. The initial information received by Papua Police said the dead victims are Second Brigadier Ilham, First Brigadier Muhamad Rasyid Ridho Matdoan and Second Brigadier Muhamad Armansyah.
“The initial analysis revealed there is connection between the additional personnel and the rebel group. He also ran away,” he added.
Separately, the Chairman of Interfaith Harmony Forum (FKUB) Papua, the Rev. Lipius Biniluk said he regretted the incident. Moreover it was occurred in Christmas occasion, which is a sacred day for Christians. “I hope the Police could arrest the perpetrators to find out their motive behind the attack. But they must be keen for doing so. Don’t let unrelated people becoming victims,” he said by phone. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)

5) GOVERNOR : PRESIDENT’S SPECIAL STAFF WOULD NOT ASK FOR CASH TO REGIONS

Jayapura, Jubi – A day before Jokowi’s visit to Papua, many people allegedly would take benefit such as asking for cash and so on.
Papua Governor Lukas Enembe told in Jayapura on Monday (28/11/2015) that the president’s visit might be used by some culprits to request money from the government offices through proposals.
“So, now I declare there are no special staff or expert staff or whatsoever to come and say they are preparing things and asking for this or that. If so, it’s a personal not representing the institution,” said Enembe.

Therefore, he appealed the Papuan people to be aware on such scamming modus, because if it happened, it would certainly create new situation in Papua, which is not conducive.
“People should know about this, if there are those who come asking for this and that, it’s not right. Furthermore, I have received report from several office heads about certain proposals. It’s just not right. The president’s special staff would not act like that; go to the regencies and regional government offices for collecting money by giving the reason of the president’s visit. It’s not true,” he said.
According to the governor, the purpose of Jokowi’s visit to Merauke is to launch the time capsule. He would take Hercules to Wamena to launch the Wamena Airport and government office. He would hold a public meeting at Lapangan Pendidikan. Then, at 14:00 Papua time, he will continue to travel to Sorong and Raja Ampat, West Papua Province.
“Perhaps, the president wants to spend the New Year eve in Raja Ampat. This is a tentative schedule, we don’t know any changes yet,” said Enembe.
When asked about security matter, Enembe said the military would handle it during the visit to Merauke, Wamena, Sorong and also Raja Ampat. “About the rumor that I won’t come to welcome the president, it’s not true. I would definitely welcome him because he is our president. So, both provincial and regional government officials would welcome him,” he said. (Alexander Loen/rom)

Merauke, Papua (ANTARA News) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) is scheduled to plant a "Capsule of Dreams for 2085" in Hasanap Sai field in Merauke District, Papua, on Wednesday.

The canister containing the documents of Indonesias dreams for the 2015 to 2085 period would be planted after being carried 24,089 kilometers across the countrys 34 provinces since September 22, 2015, that have been collected from the easternmost to the westernmost points of the country, according to Nick Nurachman, the executive coordinator of the event.

The time capsule would be planted permanently at the Time Capsule of Indonesia Dreams for 2015 to 2085 Monument.

Earlier, in 2015, President Jokowi launched a "Lets Work" national campaign from Indonesias westernmost zero kilometer point in Sabang, Aceh, to emphasize the importance of commitment and hard work to optimize the countrys potentials.

Men from Indonesias creative younger generation hailed the call and organized a "Time Capsule Expedition," a unique idea in history to collect the penned dreams of the public from across the countrys provinces as an initial step to motivate the nation to forge ahead.

This is also part of the "Lets Work" national campaign launched to mark the 70th anniversary of Indonesias independence.

Abdee Negara, one of the initiators and musician of Slank group band, affirmed that a dream is an important element in life. 

"To be able to work with high spirit, we must harbor dreams. This expedition is a mission to gather and integrate the dreams of all the people of Indonesia from Sabang to Merauke and unite them in a common dream to encourage the countrys younger generation to work and fight to fulfill their dreams, which are Indonesias dreams," he affirmed.

Jay Wijayanto, who is also the coordinator of the activity, remarked that President Jokowi had received and studied the penned dreams of 238 people from across 34 provinces in the country. 

President Jokowi will also document his dreams and hopes, which will be part of the Time Capsule Monument of Indonesian Dreams 2015 to 2085, he noted.

The time capsule is expected to inspire every individual and family in Indonesia to dream as high as the sky for the glory and welfare of the nation.

A national committee, regional committees, the community, mass organizations, community figures, school students, and regional governments across the country are part of the expedition.

The expedition, in its 90-day journey, has received a warm welcome on arrival in each province, thereby demonstrating the peoples enthusiasm to entrust their dreams, which will be made public in 2085.
