If it could not be resolved, continued Mansur, he will meet the police chief and commander for questioning what the problem is so it can nor be resolved. He kept wondering that every time there is no solution for every victim.
“We have a commitment to resolve this issue. And this is not a new issue, cause it drags on. Whether the victims are the army, police officer or the civilians. And the saddest thing is that the civilian who does not know anything turns to be a victim,” he said.
When it is mentioned about the human rights violation, Mansur stated that it is the human rights violation. “Yes, it the human rights violation. The National Human Right Commission should be speak not only for the Papuans. The citizens of this republic should be treated in the same way. In the near future we will send a letter to the National Human Rights Commission. If there was a death victim like this, who should be responsible?” he complained. (Jubi / Indrayadi TH/P. Maizier)
