4) Papua Legislative Council Urges Governor to Enforce Alcohol Bylaw
29 February 2016
Jayapura, Jubi – The chaiman of the Papua Legislative Council, Yunus Wonda, urged Papua Governor Lukas Enembe to immediately enforce a Special Regional Regulation (Perdasus) to ban the liquor sales in Papua.
He said both parliament and government have ratified the Perdasus, and now it is time that the governor issued a Governor Regulation for its implementation.
“All stages to establish and determine the regulation have been completed. It has been set up. We have urged the governor to implement it immediately. Now it relies on him when he want to launch and impose such Perdasus,” Wonda said on Monday (29/2/2016).
According to the politician of Democratic Party, there is no reason on delaying Perdasus Miras (special regulation on liquor ban), including the issue related to regional revenue, because human’s life is more important than revenue. Liquor is not the only source of the regional revenue for municipal/regional governments.
“If the reason is liquor brings the regional revenue, what is more important between regional revenue and human’s life? No more reason. The distribution of liquor in Papua must be stopped. Alcohol is no longer disturbing the public, but victims continue to fall. Its impact is quietly huge,” he said.
He said the relevant commission in the Indonesian House Representative took sample on Perdasus Miras in the Papua Legislative Council.
“The Perdasus is possibly to be launched at regional meeting forum between governor and mayor and regents in Papua,” he said. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)

1 March 2016
Jayapura, Jubi – After the termination of the Indonesian Football League in Indonesia following a dispute between the Indonesian Football Association and the Minister of Youth and Sport Imam Nahrawi, a number of Papua football players have moved Timor Leste to play league football in the tiny nation.
Former Persipura player, Nico Dimo, said the phenomenon showed that the football league in Timor Leste is now more attractive to Papua footballers.
“The departure of some Papua players to football clubs in Timor Leste League indicates their interest in football competition out there. But the question is that is that the football competition in our country is not interested anymore for Papuans?” Dimo told Jubi on Monday (29/2/2016).
The experience to play in football competition in Timor Leste is not the only factor for them to make decision but to keep exist as football players might be a crucial factor because the competition in Timor Leste League gives financial promises.
“Persipura’s big name has brought good image for Indonesian nation. It becomes attraction for football clubs in Timor Leste to take benefits of the football situation after PSSI freezing by the Sport Minister,” he said.
In Timor Leste, Papuan players would also get other facilities such as vehicle and house. The local clubs know how to get income through football fans and attract the sponsors to get contract to those who have named in the Indonesian football.
“Boaz Solossa, Manu Wanggai, Titus Bonay, Patrick Wanggai, Okto Maniani and some other Papuan players are familiar to the clubs of neighboring countries,” he added.
Sometimes ago, Persipura management declared not participating in Kaltim Governor Tournament because lack of sponsorship. Thus the contract of players was suspended and they are free to join with other clubs for temporarily. Some Persipura players then crossed to both domestic and international clubs. Imanuel Wanggai and Boaz Solossa chose joining the football club in Timor Leste, while Riky Kayame went to Persib Bandung. Bio Paulin joined with PS Polri and Richardo Salampessy went to Pusam Borneo FC.
However, Chairman of Papua Legislative Council Yunus Wonda regretted this fact. He said as Papuan supporting Persipura, he is worried with the current situation of Persipura.
“The management shouldn’t be rush to dissolve the players. If they have sponsorship problem, they can talk with the Papuan people, us in the parliament and other related stakeholders to find a solution,” Wonda said last week.
According to him, the coaching process of Persipura players is different with other clubs in Indonesia. But it has already happened, it would certainly difficult to get back the players to already have contract with other club. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
