Jayapura, 9/7 (Jubi) – Jayawijaya Student Association (HPMJ) asked the Governor of Papua Lukas Enembe inviting the Papua Police Chief to speak and solve the case which caused three deaths of Papuans from the central highland area.
“As the highlander descendant, the Governor should be able to present the Papua Police Chief Tito Karnavian to talk with the Jayawijaya community related to the dispute occurred at Youteva traditional market that killed three innocent men. Because if he didn’t do, the problem would continue to grow,” said Alius Asso, the Jayawijaya youth leader in the HPMJ conference at Asrama Nimboran on Tuesday (8/7).
He also said the problem wasn’t a new issue in Papua, and related to this case, it is urgent to the association to immediately conduct an evaluation towards the highlanders who domiciled in Jayapura. Therefore he requested his highlander colleagues to unite and revive the highland student organization.
Meanwhile, the central highland youth leader, Yusman Yogobi who presented in the meeting asked the customary leaders to accommodate meetings for concrete solution towards the latest case. He also urged the community leaders to contact the related stakeholders to obtain their response about this case. He also considered the highlander students are being trapped.
“All highland regencies and students should be united. Do not also believe to the Traditional Community Institution because the tribal chief at the mountainous areas were selected by nature instead of taken from the street. That’s why we never believed the tribal chief who appointed by the government,” Yogobi said.
He further considered what have been occurred at Youteva traditional market lately is the state’s effort to annihilate the Papuans, in particular the highlanders. (Jubi/Aprila/rom)
