3) Information spread by BIN about Warinussy is utterly ridiculous
Received from Yan Christian Warinussy on
22 September 2015

  Today when I arrived home late in the afternoon, I discovered a registration list produced by BIN, the State Intelligence Agency of
the Republic of Indonesia written on blue-coloured paper with the heading ‘Religious/Traditional Leaders'. It consisted of eight columns
with personal information about me and my family.   I have no idea where these BIN people got this informationfrom
which, I have to say, is completely wrong. For example, the document had the wrong information for the day of my birth. The information
about my wife, the place and date of her birth was also wrong. .Moreover the names of my children were wrong,

  It was stated that I had been calling for a referendum to be held in the Land of Papua  ???? where ??? when ???? how????  In another column 
it was stated that i had a close relationship with separatists at home and abroad. I have no idea what was meant by
the word 'relationship'.
 Another of my ‘weaknesses' according to BIN is that  I frequently defend separatists. So I have to ask myself why is this a weakness?.
So what is my duty as a lawyer in accordance with Law 18/2003? Does this mean that I am not allowed to defend activists here in the Land of Papua?
 It was also completely wrong to say that i am receiving  wages from the local government. When is that supposed to have happened?

  I have no idea where they got all this information from. They also wrote that I had on some previous occasion helped tourists to go on a
pilgrimage to Jerusalem. I simply do not understand what on earth this is all about. I have never been on such a pilgrimage.  This is quite
clear because I am not a Church leader.
This is all utter nonsense
