Jayapura, 6/1 (Jubi) – The Movement of Youth, Student and Papua’s People (Gerakan Mahasiswa dan Rakyat Papua / GEMPAR) asked the Chief of Police Office of Papua, Irjen Pol Tito Karnavian and Chief of Police Office of Jayapura City, AKBP Alfred Papare for immediately realizing their words to resolve the case of Yason Ngelia, the Head of the Student Executive Body of the Faculty of Social and Political Science of Cenderawasih University, that is still being arrested in the Police Office of Jayapura City.

Donatus Pombai, on behalf of the Coordinator of GempaR Papua, revealed to the journalists in Prima Garden Café, Abepura, Jayapura, Monday (6/1),”It was began with the silencing toward the democracy and the freedom of expression in Tanah Papua. Our peaceful actions were always forcibly disbanded by the police officers, and ended up with the arrest of eight members of GempaR. Though our demands were actually to express the rejection of the regulation of the Special Autonomy Plus.”
According to him, the arrest of the GempaR’s activists by the security apparatus was not following to the procedure.  Furthermore, he considered that the detained of Yason Ngelia who is also the Coordinator of GempaR, was unreasonable because he was subjected to the Article 351 about the persecution, while at the time of arrest, he was demonstrating at the Office of People’s Assembly of Papua in Kotaraja, Jayapura.
“Chief of Police Office of Papua and Chief of Police Office of Jayapura should realize their words immediately to resolve this case. It is planned that today (6/1) his case will be handover from the police custody into the attorney custody,” asked Donatus.
In line with this statement, Benny Hisage, the member of the Student Executive Body of the Faculty of Social and Political Science of Cenderawasih University as well as the member of GempaR, urged the police apparatus for not provoking the prisoners to do violence over the other prisoners and stop the violence in jail. He also asked for the democratic space Papuans should be widely open for Papua People.

“We also asked to the police apparatus for ending the criminalization of activists and Indigenous Papua, said Benny Hisage toward the journalists in Prima Garden Café, Abepura, Jayapura, Monday (6/1). (Jubi/Aprila/P. Maizier)
