Jayapura, Jubi – Lukas Enembe (LE) was made a suspect of violating Tolikara regional election. It is seen as having political interests ahead of Papua provincial election in the upcoming 2018.
One of the leaders of Democrats Party in Papua, Yunus Wonda considered the case was heavily politicized. He said, since it is related to provincial governor election all things are linked to shake the position of Lukas Enembe as one of the strong candidates.
“I see this because it associates with politics.This is related to his statement in Kanggime, Tolikara District during regional election campaign. He was present there as a chairman of the party (Democrat). It will be different if he is not in the position of party chairman,” said Wonda, on Monday (July 10).
According to him, Lukas Enembe present in Tolikara at the time was just fine, especially because one of the candidates for local head is a cadre of the Democratic Party and carried by the party.
“He is the chairman of the party; he did not come to suggest who to choose. But since most people hope that he would continue to the second period, he convey to the people that if they want LE to be in two periods, choose Usman,” he said.
He considered the mistake of Lukas Enembe is because he will run for the second term of Papua Governor. As a result, he suspects there are parties who are trying to find a gap to destabilize the former Puncak Jaya regent.
“It’s only for political purposes, but we will not remain silent, we will prepare a team of lawyers,” he said.
Papua Police Chief Inspector General Rafli Amar, who is also the Head of the Integrated Law Enforcement Investigator (Gakkumdu) of Papua, said that Gakkumdu Tolikara established Lukas Enembe as a suspect in the alleged violation of the Tolikara regional election.
“The file of his criminal offense has been transferred to the prosecutor’s office, and the revocation of the complaint letter is required to talk to Gakkumdu, because it is not only the police who are in Sentra Gakumdu,” Boy Rafli said in Papua Brimob Square, Jayapura City on Monday (July 10).
According to him, the revocation of a complaint letter by one of the candidates of Tolikara Head of Region not long ago did not immediately stop the investigation process, because the case was an election crime, not a complaint.
Earlier, Papua Governor Lukas Enembe was reported by one of Tolikara Regent candidate’s partner, Amos Yikwa, for alleged regional election criminal.
In the process, however, Amos Yikwa, along with Papuan Governor Lukas Enembe has signed a peace statement dated June 19, 2017.
“Amos is family and has been settled in kinship, so he pulls out this report,” Lukas Enembe said in an opportunity.
Lukas also mentions Amos has using Democratic Party to go as candidate in Tolikara. Moreover his deputy, Robeka Enembe is a family of the Governor of Papua.
“Yesterday we met and he just said that he will withdraws.
Earlier, Papua Governor Lukas Enembe was reported by Gakkumdu to the Papua Police, due to alleged campaigning violation on a calm day on May 14, 2017 or 3 days ahead of re-voting (PSU).
In his campaign before Tolikara community, Lukas Enembe asked the community to again choose Usman Wanimbo, as the Regent of Tolikara in the re-election.(*)
