    2) Navy Officer’s Rare Bird Collection Seized in Papua

    Jakarta. Papua’s Center for Conservation of Natural Resources, a division of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, and the Forest Police Rapid Reaction Unit managed to seize 68 rare birds from a navy officer in Merauke, Papua, on Monday (01/08).
    The birds were under his possession without official government license.
    “We seized 68 birds, 59 yellow-crested cockatoos, 2 palm cockatoos, 1 black-capped lories, 1 parrot and 5 lorikeets,” said the head of the conservation center, Gunung Nababan.

    Gunung said the navy officer, identified as HP, is still being questioned in Merauke. The police hope to find a connection linking the man with an illegal wildlife trade network that has been transporting endangered animals from Papua to Java.
    “In previous cases protected animals were traded illegally, including pig-snout turtles, birds and reptiles. All of these rare animals are native to Papua,” Gunung said.
    Meanwhile the ministry’s director general of law enforcement, Rasio Ridho Sani, said the threat of illegal wildlife trade still looms around conservation areas.

    “We've urged our officers all around Indonesia to step up security in conservation areas and track illegal trades of endangered animals. Ports are one of the major gateways for this illegal trade,” Rasio said.
    "Our idea is to impose criminal sanctions on perpetrators for crimes against wildlife such as prison terms or fines, especially [when they involve] protected wildlife, as a deterrent," Rasio said on Friday.
    3) Island focus: Officers secure Timika after tribes clash
    Jayapura | Tue, August 2 2016 | 06:18 am

    Military and police personnel totaling 800 have been deployed to Timika, Papua, to secure the region after a tribal conflict in Kwamki Narama district on Sunday. 

    “Four hundred military personnel and 400 police officials have searched the area to find residents who took part in the clash,” said Mimika Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Yustanto Mujiharso on Monday. 

    Clashes between tribes in the country’s easternmost region often occur and sometimes take days to end. The causes of such conflicts can stem from mundane activities such as disputes over ball games to tax collection. 

    The clash that erupted on Sunday led to three deaths and 17 houses burned down. More than 300 residents fled their homes to Jayapura to avoid the conflict. Dozens of cars and motorcycles were also damaged during the riot. 

    Yustanto said such clashes, often referred to as tribal war, should be ended. He also said law would be enforced on those who took part in killings and vandalism. 

    The police are targeting to arrest all perpetrators within a week.
