Jayapura, 3/6 (Jubi) – Papuan councillor Ruben Magay said the people of Papua wanted separation from Indonesia because they feel being unfairly treated.
“Most of Papuans feel unrespect and do not satisfied with the current administration. They feel discriminated,” Magay, chairman of Commission A at Papua’s Legislative Council, told on Tuesday (3/6).
As long as the central government does not respect Papuans and their rights, the people will continue to seek independence, he said.
“In addition, there’s a memory of the past that still lingers for Papuans until today. Injustices are the main reason,” he said.
He said Jakarta has tried to solve problems in Papua without seeing the reality.
“It has been a mistake. The government should be able to create prosperity, provide education and a peaceful atmosphere for the people. But Papuans continued to be deceived,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Papua Free Movement (OPM) still exists in Papua. One of the leaders is Goliath Tabuni. On one occasion, the Secretary General of OPM, Anton Tabuni said to a local media outlet they had no interest in any proposal from Jakarta.
“We reject them all. General Goliath Tabuni will never be stopped. We have a clear purpose,” Tabuni said.
On the other side, military commander Major General Christian Zebua said in early May  that army has seize 28 weapons belonging to OPM.  (Jubi/Arjuna)

“Do not bring up such issue for the presidential election in Papua. Everyone knows who committed human rights violations in Papua, including the case of my father. The Kopassus (Special Force) did it,” he told to by phone on Tuesday (3/6).
He further said, the other candidate is not related to his father’s death. “So, I expect Gerindra Papua to not divert the issue for seeking the popularity.  Better they talk about their programs,” he said.
He admitted if Yanni’s statement has a connection with the former President Megawati who is currently the General Chairwoman of PDP-P Party. But he asked his father’s case should not be a reason for taking down the candidate. He expected the campaign team of both sides do not turn the human right violations in Papua as the scapegoat for self-promotion and popularity, because the people of Papua need to hear the completion of the   a scapegoat in Papua for self-promotion and popularity, because the people of Papua issues either with any pattern, military approach or dialogue or anything else.
He said what was happened in Papua has been done systematically and the perpetrator is the state’s institution. So what about the families of the victims?
“Anyone who elected should be responsible on behalf of the State, when the families of the victims took the case to both national or international human rights court. Because I am on behalf of my family would charge on the murder of my father,” he said.
One day earlier, the Chairwoman of the Regional Council of Gerindra Party Papua, Yanni responded to statement on the Mapenduma case. She said those people didn’t know anything about what was exactly happened. It was not like it described.
“Many witnesses will testify. If it’s a black campaign, we can fight back this issue by bringing up the case of the murder of Papuan leader, Theys Hiyo Eluay in 2001. I thought the people of Papua are smart and not easily being fooled,” Yanni said.(Jubi/Albert/rom)

Fadli, The Jakarta Post, Batam | World | Wed, June 04 2014, 10:15 PM
Jakarta and Canberra have agreed to resolve their strained bilateral relations and to seek new cooperation opportunities in the future.
“We have agreed to resolve the problems that once disrupted our relations and to find new partnership opportunities,” said President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in a press conference following his meeting with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott in Batam, Riau Islands, on Wednesday.
Yudhoyono said the importance of a partnership based on mutual benefit and respect, especially as Indonesia-Australia relations continued to develop, was highlighted.
“Bilateral issues have sometimes appeared and it’s normal. Our spirit is to find the best solution,” he said.
The President said among the crucial points both countries needed to resolve was the alleged wiretapping by Australia on a number of high-ranking Indonesian officials in 2013. Indonesia requested the drafting of a Code of Conduct (CoC) that would regulate relations of the two countries in the future.
Meanwhile, Abbott said he was sure all of the issues could get satisfying solutions.
“The intelligence [wiretapping] issues will be resolved through an ongoing process between Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa and Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop,” he said.
Abbott stressed that both countries were partners that trusted each other and their level of trust continued to grow.
He added that intelligence and security partnerships were crucial to maintain peace and in this regard, Australia expressed its total support of Indonesia's territorial integrity. (nfo/ebf)
