The Federal Republic of West Papua has 7 provinces such as 1. Mamta Province. 2.Saireri Province. 3.Doberai Province. 4. Bomberai Province. 5. Animha Province. 6. Lapago Province and 7.Mepago Province.
President Forkorus Yaboisembut had sent Offering Peace Negotiation Letter to Presiden Jokowi dated 20, 2014 as the following the historical momentum of West Papua continues, and the executive government of the Federal Republic of West Papua will preced according to the International Procedures namely the United Nations Pacific Settlement Dispute, Chapter VI, Article 33, and Paragraph 1.
The Federal Republic of West Papua has no connection with the New York Agreement or the Act of Free Choice. These international arrangements were bilateral agreements between the United Kingdom of Netherlands and the Indonesian government without the involvement of the Papuan people or the Papuan nation.
The Papua nation and the ancestral land of the tribes of Papuan indigenous people became the focus of this New York Agreement. As a result up until now the rights of the Papuan peoples have been overridden by the Indonesian state, military and police in many and various forms.
The executive government of the
Federal Republic of West Papua is not focussing on a lawsuit
to dispute the New York Agreement in 1962 and the Act of
Free Choice in 1969 for three reasons:
1. The nation of Papua did not participate directly in the planning, the process of discussion, the determination and the signing of the New York Agreement August 15, 1962. All objective history notes the people of Papua did not participate freely and without coercion in the Act of Free Choice Act of 1969.
2. The New York Agreement and its implementation through the Act of Free Choice in 1969 resulted in the annexation of West Papua.
3. With the October 19, 2011 Declaration of the Restoration of Independence of West Papua Nation as the legal basis for the birth of the Federal Republic of West Papua, the New York Agreement is therefore disqualified and the outcome of the Act of Free Choice is no longer valid throughout the entire land of West Papua.
This is in accordance with the Laws of the Republic of Indonesia Number 24 Year 2000 on International Treaties Chapter VI (TERMINATION INTERNATIONAL TREATY), Article 18 letter g (International Agreement Ends), if the object of treaty is void.
The Federal Republic of West Papua through the October 19, 2011 unilateral Declaration of Restoration of West Papuan Independence has received the predicated legal status of SUBJECT OF INTERNATIONAL LAW known as Belligerence, subsequently the nation State of West Papua is no longer an entity of International treaty law between Indonesia and Netherlands. Consequently, the New York Agreement signed on August 15, 1962 and the results of its execution in 1969 is now terminated and eliminated by International Custom Law or General International law, as well as the Republic of Indonesia Law No. 24 of 2000, Chapter VI Article 18 Letter g.
This is also allied to the Vienna Conventions on Law of Treaties 1969, Chapter 64:, “If a new peremptory norm of general International law emerges, any existing treaty which is a conflict with the norm becomes void and terminates.”.
Indonesia always overrides and
Undermine International mechansim on West Papua
The Forty-Sixth Pacific Islands Forum was held in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea from 8 – 10 September 2015 :
1. Leaders recalled their decisions and concerns expressed at their meeting in 2006 about reports of violence in Papua, in which they also called on all parties to protect and uphold the human rights of all residents in Papua and to work to address the root causes of such conflicts by peaceful means.
2. Leaders recognised
Indonesia’s sovereignty over the Papuan provinces but
concerns about the human rights situation, calling on all parties to protect and uphold the human rights of all residents in Papua. Leaders requested the Forum Chair to convey the views of the Forum to the Indonesian Government, and to consult on a fact finding mission to discuss the situation in Papua with the parties involved.
Referring to above communique on West Papua, Papua New Guinea government as host and Chair of the 46th Forum Leaders summit had sent letter and asked President Joko Widodo’s to permit fact finding mission to enter West Papua, but President had overriden and ban Forum Leaders in 2016 to enter West Papua and Indonesia also does the same things to Federated States of Micronesia as host and Chair of 47th the Pacific Islands Forum on 8 to 10 September 2016:
1. Leaders recognised the political sensitivities of the issue of West Papua (Papua) and agreed the issue of alleged human rights violations in West Papua (Papua) should remain on their agenda. Leaders also agreed on the importance of an open and constructive dialogue with Indonesia on the issue.
Indonesia can ban international diplomat, international media and human rights defenders to enter West Papua until now. Indonesia authority control of our land and abundance of natural resources throughout of the entire land of West Papua and move transmigration and immigration from java to enter West Papua without respect and appreciation to the papuan indigenous people as the owner of the land of West Papua. Indonesia bans international media because of media will publish all informations about West Papua to international fora. Indonesia had lost Timor Leste that’s why Indonesia looks fear if West Papua to gain independence recognition from International community.
Indonesia build up its military throughout the entire land of West Papua and its military personnel build construction new road in West Papua as a part of the military operation and spread intelligence there to kidnap and kill Papuan activists . Indonesia also creat militia red white etc in West Papua and support them.
Population of indigenous people of West Papua is decrease less than 40% while Indonesian population in West Papua increase more than 60%. Decrease of West Papua’s population impact by various factors like health care, birth control and creeping genocide that done by Indonesia in West Papua.
Indonesia reaffirms support and recognition independence of the Palestine from Israel at the Organization Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Summit on Palestinian Issues in Jakarta on 6-7 March 2016 but independence of the Federal Republic of West Papua has been overridden by Indonesia state, Military and Police in many and various forms.
Like Palestine the Federal Republic of West Papua seeks and pursue International recognition. The Federal Republic of West Papua seeks emerge recognition from both Indonesia and International for the Federal Republic of West Papua and transfer of the power from the Republic Indonesia to the Federal Republic of West Papua under the auspice of a United Nations Peace Keeping Force.
