Wamena, 19/07- (Jubi) Coordinator of Peaceful and Justice Secretariat Office (SKPKC) for Papua Highland Areas, Pater Theo Kosay, OFM asked the security force to be smart in doing the investigation towards the perpetrators following the shooting incident at Dugume Village, Sub-District Tiom of Lanny Jaya Regency.
“In Papua, the sweeping or pursuing operation after the incident is becoming a habit. Based on experience, the Police and Military are generally conducting their operation blindly. We asked them to be smart in investigating the perpetrators and found the right target,” Kosay said to reporter in Wamena on Friday (18/7).
He further said based on the information received from the member of SKPKC Lanny Jaya it has frightened the people. They are traumatic and run for hiding. “They are frightened because based on their last experience, the police or military were always acting blindly,” said Kosay.
Further he considered the shooting incident at Dugume Village was a crime that should be solved by Indonesian Law. “SKPKC is very disappointed with the incident. Therefore we asked the security force to investigate this case without scarifying the people,” he said.
He admitted his office has coordinated with SKPKC Lanny Jaya to collect the updated data about the incident.
“I asked the people in Lanny Jaya and Jayawijaya for not being provoked with this situation. People should keep calm until this case could be resolved by the law enforcement authority,” Kossay said.
Similar with Kosay, a member of SKPKC for Highland Areas, Yance hoped the same thing.
“Therefore people can run their routine activities smoothly as expected. (Jubi/Ronny/rom)
