1) West Papuan group wants PNG collection returned by police
11:50 am today 

A West Papuan group says it wants the money it collected for a public donation to Papua New Guinea earthquake victims returned by Indonesian police.

West Papua Solidarity for Earthquake Disaster in Papua New Guinea said 16 of its group were arrested over two days last week in Jayapura.
Jayapura's municipal police chief Gustav Robby Urbinas said a group of Papuans were detained after being found to have not gained a permit for their public collection.
But the head of the Solidarity group, Kris Dogopia, said they had already submitted to police written notification they would be collecting in March and April.
According to him, some of the group's cash collection had been confiscated and not returned.
"They take our money. Mainly for Solidarity, we call it, for PNG. But the policemen take it. Today I and my friend, we will go to the policemen's office to ask them our money, where they take it."
Kris Dogopia said the amount of collection money which was confiscated was small.
He explained that the collection actions were aimed at assisting quake victims, and had no link with politics.

2) Air Force to Build Koops 3 in Biak

TEMPO.COJakarta - The Indonesian Air Force will establish its third Operations Command [Koops 3] in East Indonesia. Air Force chief of staff Air Marshal Yuyu Sutisna said the eastern parts of the country were quite vast, thus the presence of another Koops was necessary.
“For now the command headquarters is set in Biak, where the infrastructure was quite adequate,” he said in Jakarta, Monday, April 9.
Yuyu said the new Koops was aimed at stepping up the Air Force’s abilities in securing the country’s air sovereignty and boosting its counter-attack power. 
Yuyu said the presence of the new Koops would lead to better unity of command with the Navy and the Army during joint operations.
Yuyu said the planned establishment of the new Koops had been conveyed to Indonesian Military commander Air Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto. “The commander is looking into the plans, so the orders and decisions will come from the upper command,” Yuyu said.
Yuyu added the Koops would be completed with one squadron of fighter jets and another for transport aircraft as laid out in the Air Force’s strategic plans.
