  • Papua - Indonesia di Washington

    Indonesia: Keep Pressure on Abusive Army

    11 Oct 2005 22:50:30 GMT ----- Source: Human Rights Watch


    (Washington, October 11, 2005)-Indonesia's failure to reform its abusive military makes it essential for the U.S. Congress to maintain its restrictions on U.S. military assistance, Human Rights Watch said today. This week, House-Senate conferees are meeting to reconcile the annual Foreign Operations Appropriations bill and to decide whether restrictions on military aid to Indonesia should remain in place. Because of the Indonesian military's long record of abuse in places such as East Timor, Aceh and Papua, Congress in 2000 placed conditions on the Foreign Military Financing (FMF) assistance package to the Indonesian military. In fiscal year 2005, the conditions included requirements that the Indonesian government:

    • prosecute and punish members of the armed forces who have been credibly alleged to have committed gross violations of human rights or to have aided or abetted militia groups;
    • ensure cooperation by the armed forces with civilian judicial authorities and with international efforts to resolve cases of gross violations of human rights in East Timor and elsewhere; and
    • implement reforms to increase the transparency and accountability of military operations and financial management, including making publicly available audits of receipts and expenditures.

    "Because President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was elected democratically, many now wrongly believe that Indonesia's military has been reformed," said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch. "But it continues to be responsible for routine abuses, has failed to address past crimes and remains beyond effective civilian control."

    Indonesian military officers and soldiers who commit human rights violations remain largely beyond the reach of the law. No senior Indonesian officer has been held to account for war crimes and crimes against humanity in East Timor in 1999 or other serious violations elsewhere in the archipelago. In July, an appeals court overturned all convictions in the first test-case of accountability for Suharto-era crimes, the 1984 Tanjung Priok massacre that left at least 33 civilians dead. The civilian defense minister still does not have the ability to appoint, discipline or remove officers.

    Human Rights Watch called on the conferees to adopt the Senate's language for the Fiscal Year 2006 bill, which tracks most of the conditions from last year, and adds important reporting requirements to monitor credible progress on the human rights situation in Papua and Aceh, crucial to informing policymaking on Indonesia. Another Senate provision, Report on Indonesian Cooperation, section 6108, also requires a detailed report prior to the release of International Military Education and Training (IMET) for Indonesia from the Secretary of State on U.S. and Indonesian efforts to bring to justice those responsible for the ambush and murder of two U.S. citizens and an Indonesian in Papua in August 2002.

    Human Rights Watch expressed concern over recent statements by Indonesian President Yudhoyono and army chief General Endriartono Sutarto calling for the reinvigoration of the territorial command structure. The territorial command structure has, in effect, made the army an occupying force instead of focusing on national defense. Public opinion surveys in Indonesia have shown that it is deeply unpopular. Efforts to reinforce the territorial command structure serve as an alarming reminder of the failure to implement serious and structural military reform.

    Human Rights Watch also voiced concern over the largely unaddressed issue of the military's continued control of a vast network of legal and illegal businesses. While Indonesian legislation in 2004 requires all such business interests be divested by 2009, there are widespread doubts in Indonesia that this will happen. There are also fears that, if it does happen, the businesses might simply be transferred to entities controlled by senior military figures. Fanning fears of corruption, the military recently sold off shares in its private companies without notifying the authorities responsible for overseeing the transfer of military businesses. Human Rights Watch noted that financial transparency of the military's budget, as called for in the U.S. Senate proposal, must form the backbone of any serious reform effort.

    Human Rights Watch also cautioned against a simplistic response to the recent October 1, 2005 Bali bombings and other bombings in the past three years in Indonesia. Counter-terror cooperation does not justify resumption of Foreign Military Financing and export of lethal equipment. The police, long marginalized by the military, remain the key actor in counter-terror efforts. It was the police who successfully investigated the perpetrators of the October 2002 Bali bombing and other attacks. The U.S. already has numerous options available to engage with the Indonesian government, including the military, on counterterrorism.

    "This is the wrong time to let up the pressure on the Indonesian military," said Adams. "Now is the time to insist that it ends abuses against civilians, phases out the territorial structure and ends its corrupt business practices."

    Supporters of military aid argue that with direct elections of the president in 2004, the stated commitment of President Yudhoyono and Defense Minister Juwono Sudarsono to reform, and the recent peace agreement in Aceh, the problems are being solved. Yet when pressed, advocates of military aid are unable to articulate how the widely recognized systemic problem of abuse is being addressed.

    "Even supporters of the Indonesian military should realize that holding out the carrot of military assistance is the best way to help with military reform," said Adams. "Continued restrictions are needed to encourage structural and financial reform and accountability for serious human rights violations."

  • China to Invest US$1 Billion in Fishery Sector


    China to Invest US$1 Billion in Fishery Sector
    Friday, 09 September, 2005 | 11:27 WIB

    TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Chinese businessmen have made a commitment to invest in the fishery sector in Indonesia.

    “Total investment will amount to US$1 billion,” said Freddy Numberi, Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, at his office on Thursday (08/09).

    Assurances regarding the investment were made during a recent visit made by Numberi to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) together with Vice President Jusuf Kalla.

    Investment amounting to US$200 million will be made in Merauke, US$300 million in Terrnate and US$300 in Tual, with the remainder in other regions.

    Numberi said that the cooperation made by the Chinese and Indonesian governments had not fully benefited
    Indonesia up to now, as only issued licenses for fishing in Indonesia.

    The fish are then exported abroad.

    With foreign investment in the fishery sector, fish will be processed in Indonesia. (Sutarto-Tempo News Room)Friday, 09 September, 2005 | 11:27 WIB

  • Menhut Desak Proses Hukum 10 Bupati yang Terlibat Kejahatan Kehutanan

    Rabu, 07 September 2005 - 07:30 AM

    Jakarta, Menteri Kehutanan (Menhut) mendesak Kejaksaan Agung mengusut tuntas kasus 10 bupati dan mantan bupati yang terindikasi kuat melakukan kejahatan di bidang kehutanan. Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono juga telah mengeluarkan izin pemeriksaan terhadap para bupati tersebut.

    ''Saat ini beberapa kasus sudah sampai pada penyelidikan dan pengumpulan bahan keterangan. Jadi memang ada beberapa kasus pelanggaran yang berpotensi merugikan negara yang diduga kuat melibatkan para bupati dan mantan bupati itu. Kita sudah minta secara resmi kepada Kejaksaan Agung supaya kasus ini cepat diselesaikan,'' kata Menhut MS Kaban di Jakarta, Senin (5/9).

    Menurut Menhut, akibat ulah para kepala daerah itu, negara berpotensi mengalami kerugian puluhan miliar. Saat diminta memerinci kesepuluh bupati dan mantan bupati itu, Menhut mengaku tidak hafal satu per satu. Dia hanya menyebutkan, kesepuluh bupati dan mantan bupati tersebut, lima orang berasal dari wilayah Kalimantan, empat orang dari Sumatera, dan satu orang dari Papua.

    Direktur Jendral Bina Produksi Kehutanan Dephut, Suhariyanto menambahkan, kasus-kasus yang melibatkan para kepala daerah tersebut meliputi penyelewengan setoran Dana Reboisasi dan Provisi Sumber Daya Hutan (DR-PSDH), pemberian izin pengusahaan hutan yang tidak sesuai dengan UU 41/1999 tentang Kehutanan, serta pembalakan liar (illegal logging).

    ''Ada setoran DR-PSDH dalam jumlah yang cukup besar yang sampai saat ini masih ditahan kepala daerah dengan berbagai alasan. Ada setoran yang mengendap di rekening bupati, dan ada juga yang digunakan untuk hal-hal lain. Padahal dana DR-PSDH itu harus disetorkan ke kas negara. Jumlahnya memang tidak sampai ratusan miliar rupiah, hanya puluhan miliar rupiah. Tapi, kita tidak melihat nominalnya. Ini adalah pelanggaran aturan dan merugikan negara. Jadi, ini yang kita tekankan,'' katanya.

  • Forum seeks public debate on Papua

    Muninggar Sri Saraswati, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta


    A group of prominent figures established a forum on Tuesday to increase public participation in the efforts to resolve the problems of Papua, which has been affected by human rights abuses and secessionist sentiment for decades.


    The establishment of the Papua Forum has been inspired by a lack of transparency in the way in which the government dealt with the Aceh conflict recently, the forum's deputy chairman Marzuki Darusman said.


    "People feel they have been excluded by the government from the efforts to settle the Aceh problem. Now that the President has announced the government's intention of addressing the Papua issue, we hope that this forum will be capable of ensuring greater public participation," Marzuki, of the Golkar Party, said.


    In his address to the Regional Representatives Council (DPD) a few weeks ago, President Susilo said that the government would now turn its attention to Papua after the peace deal with the Free Aceh Movement (GAM) to end three decades of bloodshed in the country's westernmost province.


    Albert Hasibuan, who chairs the new forum, said that it had been established to show the public that the Papua issue was not the exclusive domain of Papuans and the government, but also concerned other Indonesians.


    Other founders of the forum include H.S. Dillon, Sabam Siagian, Fikri Jufri, Tommy Legowo, Zoemrotin K. Susilo, Asmara Nababan, Fajrul Falaakh, Faisal Basri, Tuty Herati Nurhadi, Bara Hasibuan, Rizal Sukma, Father J. Budi Hernawan OFM, Wiryono Sastrohandoyo, Shanti Poesposoetjipto, Sjafii Maarif and Harry Tjan Silalahi.


    Wiryono said Indonesians quickly unite when it comes to problems with other countries but do the opposite in response to domestic problems.


    "There has also long been a mind-set that separatism must be crushed (by the use of force). It's reform time now, meaning that problems must be resolved through peaceful means," said the former diplomat, who was the government's chief negotiator during talks with GAM in 2002.


    Albert said the forum planned to initiate debate on the problems of Papua and to approach them from various perspectives. The results would then be presented to the government.


    Jakarta, Sabam added, must not attempt to oversimplify the problems in Papua, which he said were complicated and had persisted since the late 1940s.


    The government has admitted that separatist sentiment in Papua is the result of the unfair treatment meted out by Jakarta to indigenous Papuans in the economic, political, social and security fields.


    Human rights violations have been widespread in Papua, but the perpetrators have rarely been brought to book. Meanwhile, most Papuans continue to live in abject poverty despite Papua's mineral wealth.


    Like Aceh, Papua has been granted special autonomy, but unlike Aceh its implementation has consistently been thwarted by Jakarta. To date, the government has yet to set up the Papuan People's Assembly (MRP), even though its establishment is mandated by law.


    Through changes in the legislation, the government has ensured that if and when it is set up, the MRP, which is supposed to have a say in the political, social and economic affairs of the province, will serve as little more than a cultural talking shop.


    Separately in Jayapura, tribal leader Seblum Werbabkay called on the Papua administration, the Papua General Elections Commission (KPUD) and the Papua provincial council to hold a gubernatorial election after the establishment of the MRP.


    He said it was the MRP that had the power to determine those eligible to contest the election under the Papuan Special Autonomy Law (No. 21/2001).


    "Otherwise, it may spark conflict," Seblum said.


    The Papua issue recently came to the fore again following the questioning in the U.S. of Indonesia's sovereignty over Papua in the 2006-2007 foreign relations authorization bill, which has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and is now at the committee stage in the Senate.
