West Papua - ICRA Reports Big Tension In Ransiki

BIG TENSION IN RANSIKI - ICRA INTERNATIONAL WITNESS OF INTIMIDATION

Survey of Icra International International Commission for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples based in Paris

We just come back from Ransiki. The situation is very very bad there.

We went there one week ago to make a enquiry about the conflict in Wasior. At mid day we went to the beach to discuss with people. We came back on the main road to take a taxi and we saw one Papua being beaten by two Brimob. We hide directly in a house. The Brimob beat him very strongly with his foot. He threat the Papuan with his automatic gun. He beats him on his testicles many times after he used his butt to beat him after the Papuan crawled on the soil. It was horrible.

Many times since we are working on Papua struggle we heared this story but when you see it, you realize the amazing struggle of Papuan People and the atrocities of Indonesian soldiers. We hide in the house during one hour. We left by the back door but one javanese saw us. He tries to follow us by taxi but we disappeared throught the forest and cacao plantation thank to clever Papua.

We came back several days after. The family told us that one man called Awon has been catched by the police three hours after we left Ransiki. He is in big trouble. His wife and his 5 children are exhausted.

In Ransiki, the situation is untenable since wednesday. They used intimidation every day like we saw. Brimob check every house to see if there are no people without identity card otherwise they put them in jail and beat them.

Brimob raped two children several times. When the parents take them back they beat them also. One man of 20 year has been beaten seriously with the butt.

Please help Papua People there. Brimob from Mollucu are very dangerous people.

More information will follow but we can't say now.
