Jayapura, Jubi – The Minister of Youth and Sport Imam Nahrawi is destroying Papuan football, said former Persipura player Nico Dimo.

He said the league competitions in Indonesia are currently suspended following the decision taken by the minister to freeze the Indonesian Football Association (PSSI) that resulted in the termination of the Indonesian Super League (ISL) football competition and despaired Persipura to compete in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup on last year.

Further, Papuan football team for Pre-National Sport Event (PON) that previously won the regional champion on the early match held in Jayapura must do a rematch to ensure their participation in football competition of PON that held in West Java, Dimo told Jubi on Friday (12/2/2016).

“And now how dare is the President Jokowi to remove the Minister of Youth and Sport from his cabinet. Many people are certainly expecting the president can do it if he loved his people and Indonesian football,” he said.

In addition, he said, now FIFA rejected the minister’s letter asking FIFA’s recognition on the Ad Hoc team proposed by the government although FIFA actually has formed the PSSI Reform Ad Hoc Committee led by Agum Gumelar.

“The solution is now up to Jokowi, who has been elected by the Indonesian people including Papuan people,” he said.

During the time, the government looked reluctant to work with the PSSI Reform Ad Hoc Committee considering the team is a form of the violation of commitment by FIFA official against the Indonesian Government when met the President Joko Widodo at the early of November last year.

At that time, FIFA agreed with the Indonesian Government to form a small team to hold communication with FIFA related to the progress of the Indonesian football. The small team has been established and consisted of Gatot S Dewa Broto, the late Joko Susilo, former Indonesian Sport Committee Chairwoman Rita Subowo, former Director General of Asia Africa Makarim Wibisono, and representative of former national player Dede Sulaiman as members.

Later, FIFA stated to form a PSSI Reform Ad Hoc Team by involving the national football stakeholders represented government, PSSI, PT. Liga Indonesia and player representatives. The government considered this as violation of agreement made between the Indonesian Government and FIFA.

However, PSSI Reform Ad Hoc Committee is optimistic the dispute on national football could be solved before the FIFA Extraordinaty Congress that would be held in Zurich, Switzerland on 26 February.  The Ad Hoc Committee Chairman Agum Gumelar said the minister is now on the same point with the team.

“At least we have same motivation with the minister to resolve the problem on national football. I see the minister also doesn’t want the sanction of FIFA to Indonesia would be lasted. Our discussion is also the same, it is related to the future of national football,” said Gumelar as cited in online media.

He said the key is the government want to get involved in the committee. The reform of national football could run smoothly due to good communication of both sides. Thus the committee could find out the government aspirations and vice versa. “But I am optimistic that the committee and the government would work together to solve this problem,” he said.

MG was in Wamena when Istaka workers murdered, says MRP member

Papuan People’s Assembly launched a book “Kekerasan tak berujung di Nduga” in Jayapura, Monday Senin (9/12/2019). – Jubi/Benny Mawel

Jayapura, Jubi – Luis Madai, a member of Papuan People’s Assembly (MRP), said the person named for suspect in the murder of sixteen workers of PT Istaka Karya was not in Nduga at the time of the incident. Instead, Madai said, the suspect MG was in Wamena, the capital of Jayawijaya Regency, Papua.

Madai declared his statement on Wednesday (22/1/2020). “During the incident [of murder], MG was in Wamena [with his family]” said Madai.

Therefore, he called the police to act fair and clever in investigating this case of ambush. Madai said the police investigation, in this case, seems to abuse the right of a person who does not have any knowledge about law and Indonesian by accusing him of the suspect.

“The police must see who is the real perpetrator. If they can see it clearly, they can find people who deserved to be arrested and brought to justice,” said Madai.

He then gave an example of Egianus Kogoya, the armed group leader from the West Papua National Liberation Army who had claimed be responsible for the murder. Madai also mentioned that the police should thoroughly examine the testimony given by Jhony Arung as the field supervisor of PT Istaka Karya.

“It is clear that Egianus Kogoya is the master of mind that the police should arrest. But they do not arrest him until now,” said Magai. Furthermore, he asked the police for tracing Arung’s current domicile. Johny Arung was one of the workers who were safe from the ambush.

The sixteen workers of PT Istaka Karya was killed in the ambush on 2 December 2018. The insurgent group from West Papua National Liberation Army under Egianus Kogoya claimed to be responsible towards this incident.

Meanwhile, the legal process against MG has become a controversial issue. MG was arrested by the military Task Force near the murder scene, Puncak Kabo, Yigi Sub-district, Nduga Regency and handed him to the local police of Jayawijaya.

The police admitted that MG is not a member of Kogoya’s group. On 15 August 2019, the Local Police of Jayawijaya held the reconstruction of Nduga ambush at the yard of Jayawijaya Police Headquarters. In the reconstruction, MG demonstrated 30 scenes of the shooting.

After the reconstruction, Jayawijaya Police Crime and Investigation Sub-unit Chief Alexander told Jubi that MG is not a member of Kogoya’s group but a partisan.

On 17 December 2019, Adjunct Police Commissionaire Suheriadi, Jayawijaya Crime and Investigation Unit, declared that MG has sent to Jakarta and would try in Jakarta. At that time he stated MG was named a suspect because he was at Puncak Kabo at the time of the ambush. “MG helped to determine whether the shot victims were already dead or not by stubbing their bodies,” he told Jubi on 17 December 2019.

The trial against MP that held in the Central Jakarta District Court has become a concern of many parties. On 17 January 2020, the Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI) sent a letter to the Head of the Central Jakarta District Court asking the panel of judges to consider the teeth examination towards the suspect to estimate the actual age of the suspect. KPAI sent the letter after receiving information that MG is still a child but conduct a trial in a public court.

Meanwhile, the Papuan People’s Representative has published their investigation in a book titled “Kekerasan tak Berujung di Nduga” which means the endless violence in Nduga. This report concludes that the murder of PT Istaka Karya workers did not occur spontaneously, but preceded by a series of events involving the insurgent group from West Papua National Liberation Army and the workers. In their report, the Papuan People’s Assembly reviews the role of Jhony Arung in the series of event that led to the murder of sixteen PT Istaka Karya workers. (*)

Wamena, Jubi – Mobile Brigade (Brimob) headquarters planned to build in Jayawijaya Regency, Papua Province face both land and personnel issues.

Senior Police Commissionaire Godhelp Mansnembra, the Unit Commander of Papua Police’s Brimob, said despite these two issues they still need coordination with the local police chief of Jayawijaya Regency.

“We are not planning to build a big headquarters, but at least it is enough for accommodating a company. So, perhaps we can set a post for a start. It also relates to personnel recruitment,” Mansnembra said in Wamena on Wednesday (22/1/2020).

The Papua Police has formed the Mobile Brigade Detachment D in Jayawijaya with 171 personnel, but they are planning to expand their personnel to 400.

“We have a Brimob detachment here. With more than 400 troopers, they would not only be assigned in Jayawijaya Regency, but also to other regions such as Merauke, Mappi and Wamena,” he said.

If the land is available, we will start to build the headquarters command for a company at least next year.

“Regarding other facilities, we already have vehicles, but considering the expensive fuel and maintenance cost in Wamena, we need to wait until the settlement of the land issue to bring those operational vehicles here,” he said.

Meanwhile, Deputy Regent of Jayawijaya Marthin Yogobi said from the meeting with Brimob Unit Commander there was no discussion concerning the construction of Brimob Headquarters. However, the regional government had facilitated the installation of some Brimob posts in several points to support peace and order in society.

“During the meeting with Brimob Unit Commander, there was no discussion about such plan of extra personnel deployment to Jayawijaya region,” he said.

Further, Yogobi said the commander’s visit to Jayawijaya was also to inspect his personnel’s promptness ahead of local councillor’s inauguration which planned taking place Wednesday (23/1/2020)

“The existing Brimob troop in Jayawijaya is sufficient to support security during the inauguration,” he said. (*)

“We are trying to find solutions for these students because it is not easy for them to return to their former cities of study and adapt to it. However, we can find a way to make them feel safe,” he said.

According to him, before the students return to their former cities of study, it is the government’s responsibility for ensuring that the students would be safe and secured. Therefore, there will be no more racism incidents to occur in the future.

“We must take immediate actions before the enrolment begins to avoid late enrolment that can affect their academic result and emotion in the cities of study,” he said. (*)
