Another KNPB activist killed

1) Another KNPB activist killed.

Victor F. Yeimo

Dear people in the world,

This is the third times i'm writing this letter in sorrow on the emergency situation being faced by all independence activists of The West Papua National Committee (KNPB) in whole regions of West Papua, when the Indonesian President is selling our natural resources with UK and others.

This is really hurts when every day Indonesia killed, arrested, terrorized and imprisoned pro independence activists who were conducting peaceful resistance in West Papua.

In the UK, SBY was named honor in the name of democracy, but in West Papua, activists KNPB who held demos disbanded, shot, killed and imprisoned.

Yesterday, 4 November 2012, one of the leader of KNPB in the Pak-Pak, Paul Horis killed by Indonesian special forces mysteriously, one member of KNPB named Klisman Woi still critical in hospital (see the news & photos here). Whereas previously, the secretary of the Regional Parliament in Merauke, Peter T. Katem beaten and tortured by the Indonesian military (TNI) 755th Infantry Company E Yalet Merauke at 03.00 pm on November 3 (see the news & photos here). The beatings without cause and effect.

The other KNPB's activists continue to be arrested. There are 13 member of KNPB's activists in Wamena arrested and jailed by the discovery of a bomb engineering. Detachment 88 in Wamena was made leader KNPB in this area as the Most wanted and continue targeted without evidence of a crime.

In Timika, Detachment 88 and Brimob also made engineering of discoveries bomb at KNPB office. 13 people were arrested, including the region head of KNPB Steven Itlay and chef of Bomberai Region Parliament, Romario Yatipai. They are still detained without clear evidence of action (see photos).

In Biak, two members of KNPB also arrested on charges of storing bombs. In fact, I as chairman of KNPB knew that our members have not any capacity to assemble bomb, also there is no program in the struggle of KNPB to train them assembling bomb, because we are fighting for the right of self-determination in a peaceful and dignity.

In Sentani, at the Maribu village, the Detachment 88 has invaded the house of Terrianus Sato who is a member of the National Parliament of Tabi region. Terrianus families and residents in the village fled into the woods and they're calling international protection (see photos and news here).

I feel the world with lust political economy was afflicted us. We believe that there are still people in this world who have a heart to appreciate humanity, justice and freedom that continues to be fought by the people of West Papua. We ask the international community to encourage solidarity Parliaments and your government to urge UN intervention in the current conditions in West Papua.

When your heart tremble because of oppression, you are our friend

Thank you

Victor F. Yeimo
Chairman of The West Papua National Committee [KNPB]
