Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Legislative Council continue to urge the Indonesian President Joko Widodo to resolve the case of the shooting dead of four students in Paniai on 8 December 2014. For that reason, the Papuan Councilor Laurenzus Kadepa decided coming to the Presidential Palace to meet the president.
“On behalf of Papuan people, we asked him to keep his promise over Papua by immediately taking action on severe human right violation in Paniai and other human right violations in Papua as the evidence of his achievement in front of Papuans and the world citizens, he told Jubi through short message on Monday night (13/4/2015).
He said although he couldn’t meet the president but he gave a letter declaring a political statement of Papua Legislative Council about the Paniai case resolving to the Presidential Administration Chief Andi Suparman.
“Its letter receipt number is 021-3813583, while the copied letter also gave to the Indonesian Human Right Commission and received by the Administration Chief Bahtiar W. The receipt number is 183.1/711,” he said.
He further said the Papua Legislative Council would not stay until this case is resolved. The parliament will not stop voicing the justice for the victims and their families. Their statement is clear, the formation of Investigative Commission on Human Right Violation or recently called the Ad Hoc team is the best solution for the victims and their families to get justice.
“It’s fair if they demanded the formation of Investigative Commission on Human Right Violation to bring justice for the victims and families. I’ll try to meet Joko Widodo within this month,” he said.
Earlier, the human right activist Usman Hamid said 13,542 supporters through online petition published in change.org also recommend the formation of Investigative Commission on Human Right Violation or Ad Hoc team. Thousands of people from many provinces and countries have signed it. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
