Jayapura, Jubi – In addition to launching and laying the first stone of a cross-border station at the Indonesian border with Papua New Guinea, the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan would also talk about drugs, terrorism and the village funds.
But, during his three days visit in Jayapura, his most important agenda is to resolve human rights issues.
“The most important is the human rights issues. Sixteen cases are still unresolved, but I have started reviewing them all. Because I can say that eight cases are not categorized as human rights violations. But that is only my opinion. We will make it transparent, so other parties or colleagues from Papua can participate,” said the minister in Jayapura on Monday (28/3/2016).
According to him, among the 16 cases are the Wasior Case, Wamena Case and Paniai Case.
“But we have to be fair, if it was right we must say right and vice versa, those who find guilty get punished, and everything is over. Do not raising the issues of human rights to everywhere, moreover do not let it being used by other countries to discredit Indonesia,” he said.
He also said the government wants the human rights issues would be immediately resolved within this year, if possible.
“We want everything to be settled within this year. In fact, in May, we will report some issues to the president. We will make a decision after that, including PKI (Indonesian Communist Party) and other cases, Semanggi and Talangsari, and several cases in Papua as well,” he said. (Victor Mambor/rom)
