Jayapura, 5/11 (Jubi/AwasMifee) – A man was beaten to death while in police detention by a local police officer and a man working for the Astra Group as head of security. The assault took place on New Year’s Eve in Okaba near Merauke. The Astra Group has plans for a massive sugar cane plantation which has met with opposition from local residents.

Papuan news website Umaginews.com reported that as a result of being beaten by police and security guards, the victim, a local resident known as Roby, suffered severe head trauma and his body was covered with blood. He died on the spot. This news was communicated by a local resident, Simon P, through Facebook.

In the Umaginews article Simon expressed the hope that NGOs, Human Rights Defenders, the National Human Rights Commission, Church Organisations, Journalists, and Papuan Activists would support efforts to advocate for this case in which a local resident had been killed by law enforcement officers, members of the Indonesian Police Force.
