Papua Governor Urges Police to Solve Shooting Case in Paniai


Jayapura, Jubi – Governor of Papua Lukas Enembe urged law enforcers to resolve the Paniai shooting incident as soon as possible.

“It is a demand from the public. So, I urge the police to immediately determine who the real suspects are. We hope the police will open their investigation results to the public,” Enembe told reporters in Jayapura, Papua on Tuesday (24/02).

Related to President Joko Widodo’s instruction to form an investigation team, Enembe claimed he did not know about the plan.
“There has been no report and clarity about it. As, this case has been exposed through the media, it must solve completely,” he said.

He considered, the accumulation of various problems that occur in Papua will lead to disappointment and distrust against the government.

Therefore, the disclosure of the case must be published to the public as they always come to ask.
“We ask that the law enforcement officers to announce who the suspects if they had identified. So, people do not keep asking,” he added.


Earlier, dozens of witnesses and victims in the case of persecution and shootings in Enarotali, Paniai, Papua met the team of the Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) who arrived in Enarotali last Tuesday (2/17).

A commissioner of HAM, Manager Nasution said the investigation process is very important, so that the witnesses and survivors have an opportunity to provide the data and information required.

“Description of witnesses and victims is crucial in the process of this investigation,” he told the Jubi in Enarotali, Friday afternoon (20/2). (Alexander Loen/ Tina)
