Jayapura, Jubi – The Papua Anti-Corruption Non-Governmental Organization (PPA) and the Jayawijaya Community Forum of Central Highlands of Papua (FMJPTP) urged the Papua Police and Papua High Prosecutor Office to uncover a case of corruption of Rice for the poor program (Raskin) diversion in Jayawijaya Regency in the 2012 budget year.

A 400-ton case of raskin corruption has been revealed through first hand operation (OTT) by former Jayawijaya police chief, AKBP John Edison Isir at Hibama market.

“The head of Wouma, Napua and Yalengga districts as suspects has even been questioned by the Papua High Prosecutor’s Office (Kejati) of Papua, Wednesday, April 23, 2013,” said Chairman of FMJPTP in Jayapura, Yulianus Mabel, to Jubi in Jayapura Tuesday (October 10).

Mabel believes the law enforcement’s performance is slow. He even suspects there is no intention of filing the case. “I ask the Police Chief of Jayawijaya and the Papua police chief to follow-up the case based on his promise some time ago,” Mabel explained.


Another activist Yan Matuan also said that if Regional Police and Papua Kejati must prove their promise by revealing the perpetrators of Raskin Affair and the misdistribution of village funds which until now has is no clarity.

“This case used to been handled seriously by former Police Chief of Jayawijaya, but at a sudden he then transferred to Manokwari,” Yan said.

He asked the new police chief to conduct the investigation since the evidence are plenty. (tabloidjubi.com/Zely)
