Jayapura, Jubi – Efforts by the Human Right Special Committee of the Papua Legislative Council to resolve the shooting incident that killed four high school students and injured dozens of people in Enarotali, Paniai on 8 December 2014 have won the backing of a young Mee tribesman, Lukas Gobay.
He said all local stakeholders, including religious leaders, customary leaders, community leaders and people, must give their support to the Human Right Special Committee to fight for the victims and their families to get justice.
“I think all stakeholders must give their support to the Human Right Special Committee of Papua Legislative Council and Human Investigation Commission on Human Right Violation (KPP HAM) or currently renamed the Adhoc team to resolve this case and bring it to the human right court,” Gobay told Jubi in Jayapura on Monday (8/6/2015).
According to him this bloody incident that caused dead victims is clearly the severe human right violation. He hope this case could be revealed for not be happened in the future.
“Moreover, the violence often happens in Paniai. Do not let something like this continue to be happened. Until now people in Paniai are feeling anxious. So far the struggle of Human Right Special Committee of Papua Legislative Council to push the settlement of the case was optimal. Now just to let the relevant parties to get involved to resolve this case,” he said.
However, he said he doesn’t agree that the excavation of body victims for autopsy should be done as proposed by the Papua Police.
“If it was me, I do not agree about the excavation. It is against the Mee tribal custom. If they want an autopsy, it should be done before the bodies were buried,” he said.
Earlier, the Chairman of Human Right Special Committee of Papua Legislative Council, Laurenzus Kadepa said the committee would continue their work to enforce the settlement of the shooting case in fulfilling the sense of justice towards the victims and their families. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
