Nabire, Jubi – Evangelical Christian Church (GKI) Cluster Hitadipa asked the local government of Intan Jaya, Indonesian Military (TNI) and Police to immediately relocate the military post in Hitadipa.

 

“On behalf of 24 GKI churches (in Papua), we asked the military police to vacate or relocate to another place. It is for assuring our congregations who are currently on refugee returning to their houses safely,” said Rev Yahya Sani, the Counsellor of Cluster Hitadipa to Jubi by phone on Friday (25/9/2020).

 

He also asked the security forces not to commit violence against civilians because they are victims.
