“The international community will question about what was exactly happening in Papua? Why the students were forcibly dispersed, tortured and arrested in the peace rally of Papua issues. It would increasingly heat the Papua issues,” Kadepa said on Thursday (3/12/2015).

“I saw him to show his bad attitude. I could appoint him as a thug. It is the State’s capital. He burned down the situation, and now it turns an international’s spotlight. He heated up the Papua issues,” he said.

According to him, Karnavian get his current position because he was considered success on duty in Papua. He must appreciate it. “I am upset because he was former Papua Police Chief. He should warn his officers for not acting brutal that ultimately leading to the arrest of hundreds of Papuan student activists,” he said.

Other Papuan legislator Emus Gwijangge said he also deplored the arrest. He said if the Police wanted arrest the students, they must comply with procedure, not at random. “To express the opinion in public is guaranteed by Law. Bring the evidence to prove the Police is nurturing and protecting the people,” he said. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
