Jayapura, 30/5 (Jubi) – A report released by JPIC Synod GKI, Papua, states that on 23 April Papuan human rights activist Yones Douw was intimidated by police as he was going about his work monitoring the security situation at the local electoral commission.

Yones Douw states that human rights defenders in Nabire have to face the continuously growing attention of security forces, who monitor Mr. Douw’s as well as other human rights defenders’ activities and often respond with intimidation, threats, acts of terror, and negative comments towards civil society activists. Yones Douw currently feels threatened and demands that local police authorities carry out strong disciplinary sanctions against officer SUKIFRI.
