1) SPECIAL AUTONOMY FUND-SHARING MUST BE ADJUSTED WITH INDIGENOUS POPULATION
Jayapura, Jubi – Papua legislator Emus Gwijangge said the Papua Special Autonomy Fund sharing scheme must fit the number of indigenous population in the customary areas in Papua.
He said the policy of Papua Governor Lukas Enembe to give 80% of Special Autonomy Fund to regencies/municipality is correct. However, it should be adjusted with the number of indigenous populations located in five customary areas.
“For example, there are 10 regencies located into Meepago customary area, Lapago covers six regencies, Mamta has four regencies, and Anim Ha has four hours. The most population of indigenous Papuans live in Meepago customary area,” Gwijangge told Jubi on last week.

According to him, the customary areas with the less indigenous Papua are Anim Ha and Mamta. He said most population in Anim Ha is migrants while the Special Autonomy fund is reserved to indigenous Papuans.
“So I think its portion should not be flat. I prefer if the fund sharing is according to the number of indigenous population in each customary area or regency. In addition, the difficulty of access must be considered. For example the regency located in Lapago area, the inter Sub-district access could only reached by small plane,” he said.
Further he said he would convey this issue in the Papua Regional Budget Plenary Meeting 2016 through the review of fraction. He also asked the regional/municipal parliaments to play their control and supervision roles to avoid the budget has been used by the officials.
“The use of the Special Autonomy Fund must be fully optimized. Until now people are still complaining, although the budget has been transferred to regency/municipality. Do not scarify the people. If it was misused, better to identify the number of indigenous Papuans and the budget should be delivered per household,” he said.
Budget Committee and Consultative Body of the Papua Legislative Council, the expenditures of special autonomy fund at regional level was highlighted in the meeting of the Budget Committee and Consultative Body of the Papua Legislative Council.
The Chairman of Papua Legislative Council, Yunus Wonda said the governor’s policy was correct, but the regional leaders were not well function.
“The governor’s instruction is clear. The priority of 80% of budget is allocated for education, health services and people centered economic. But up to now, most of regencies in Papua have failed to improve the health services, education and people centered economic,” Wonda said a few days ago.
He reminded the regents/majors to not only prioritize the infrastructure development from 80% allocation budget. He said the budget for infrastructure is sufficient; it’s not only allocated from regional budget, provincial budget but also from national budget. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)

3) JOKOWI CHEATED BY PAPUA OFFICIALS ALL THE TIME, SAYS CHURCH LEADERS


Jayapura, Jubi – Church leaders said President Joko Widodo’s plan to visit Papua at the end of this year wouldn’t yield a positive impact on Papua, even more so if he’s only scheduled to meet with the officials just like his last visit.
The president of GIDI, Dorman Wandikbo, said if Jokowi wanted to resolve the root of problems in Papua, he shouldn’t meet with Papuan officials, but with church leaders.
“The government in Papua is cheating on them as well as those in Jakarta, they are also cheating on us. Because of this behavior, the problem would never been solved. If Jokowi wanted to know about the reality occurred in Papua, he should meet us. Poor him, he comes to Papua for the third times but only meet those certain people. It’s the same,” Dorman Wandikbo when answering the Jubi’s query at the press conference at the Kingmi Synod Office in Jayapura City on Friday (19/12/2015).
According to him, every time the president came to Papua, the church leaders who are considered being critic had never been invited. If there are religious, community and customary leaders came in the meeting, it was only selected people.
“Why? Because if we came, we would reveal what was really happening in Papua. Those who came are already been set up. It’s hard to invite us. It’s just waste of time if coming to Papua without resolution. Many interests are involved. Coming to Papua is also for certain interest. The Indonesian Government has failed to build the indigenous Papuan,” he said.
The Chairman of Kingmi Church Synod, the Rev. Benny Giay similarly said meeting with Jokowi is like throwing salts to the sea. The situation in Papua would never be changed.
“I wonder if he was able or not to understand what happens on the ground. Perhaps the problem is the information never reached him, in particular the Paniai case. We can help Jokowi if he needs data,” Giay said.
The Rev. Socratez Sofian Yoman from Papua Baptist Church said from year to year, the case in Papua would never been resolved, for example, the murder case of Papua leader, Theyis Eluay. The perpetrators got their promotion instead.
“Jokowi’s visit to Papua would resolve the problems in Papua. He needs not to come to Papua, but he needs to indicate his seriousness to resolve the problem in Papua. The State is not capable to build the indigenous Papuan,” Yoman said. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
