SUBJECT: Aceh to Increase Police Presence During Election

1. (U) At the Commission on Security Arrangements (CoSA)
meeting on November 4, representatives of the Aceh
Monitoring Mission (AMM), Free Aceh Movement (GAM), and the
government agreed to temporarily increase the number of
police officers in Aceh by 2,433 above levels permitted in
the Helsinki MOU to provide additional security during the
election. According to the agreement, the additional police
will depart Aceh once a new governor has been installed.

2. Agreement of all parties was necessary because the
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Government of
Indonesia and the Free Aceh Movement signed in Helsinki in
August 2005 sets the maximum number of police in Aceh at
9100.
