Appreciate the Efforts of the Security Forces to Maintain Peace in the Land of Papua


By : Timothy Gobay )*

Very high appreciation should be given to the efforts of the security forces to continue to maintain peace in the Land of Papua. With the support and encouragement given by the whole community, then of course peace will be maintained in Cenderawasih Earth, and development efforts intensified by the government will also be carried out optimally.

Papuan youths who are members of the Barisan Merah Putih (BMP) continue to fully support the efforts of the entire security apparatus consisting of joint personnel from the Indonesian National Army (TNI), Indonesian National Police (Polri) and the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) in carrying out law enforcement against Papuan separatist and terrorist groups (KST) who continue to carry out various kinds of sadistic and cruel acts that continue to undermine security and peace in Cenderawasih Earth.

In fact, it has been more than 3 (three) months, efforts to free the Susi Air Pilot, namely Captain Philip Mark Mehrtens, have continued to be carried out. However, it turns out that KST Papua continues to carry out a series of acts of terror and also violence against the local community.

Regarding the full support given by the Papuan youth for the efforts of the security forces in enforcing the law to take firm action against the separatist and terrorist groups, the Chairperson of the Trikora Youth Mandala Province of Papua, Ali Kabiay, accompanied directly by the Head of the BMP Papua, Max Ohee, along with other youth leaders from Cenderawasih Earth gave their official statement and supported the joint personnel security apparatus to maximally enforce the law and pursue KST Papua.

Not only that, but the declaration of a position which was also accompanied by a Papuan Youth Leader, Michael Sineri and Intellectual Figures Tabi Paulinus Ohee urged the group of separatists and terrorists to immediately release Susi Air Pilot, Captain Philip Mark Mehrtens.

Furthermore, it is true that law enforcement is carried out by security forces from joint personnel, namely the TNI, Polri and BIN must indeed be pursued by continuing to uphold human rights (HAM).

Even though the ongoing law enforcement efforts are advocating human rights principles, in fact the treatment from KST Papua is completely inhumane because they continue to carry out a series of heinous and barbaric acts whether they are aimed at Papuans themselves or non-Papuans.

Whereas on the other hand, in fact the local people in Bumi Cenderawasih themselves are citizens who really love peace and it cannot be said at all that the attempts of violence carried out by gangs of separatist and terrorist groups are representative of the people in Papua.

So far, all the heinous acts carried out by KST Papua have indeed been very detrimental to all parties, including the state, especially the people of Cenderawasih Earth. Because they not only carried out attacks, but also often damaged several development projects that were being intensified by the government during the leadership era of the President of the Republic of Indonesia (RI), Joko Widodo (Jokowi).

The President himself on many occasions has emphasized his strong commitment to actually be able to continue to accelerate development evenly throughout the country and to try to change the development paradigm that used to be Java-centric to become Indonesia-centric so that all regions, including the most eastern provinces in the country, also feel the impact. good for development so that people can feel an increase in welfare.

The existence of peace itself is one of the most important basic keys to be able to realize the acceleration of development in the Land of Papua. Because with peace that continues to be maintained, the people themselves will be far more advanced even in all sectors, so that the development carried out by the government will also be carried out much more optimally.

Meanwhile, the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia (Wapres RI), KH Ma’ruf Amin also asked all security forces from the joint personnel to be more alert. According to him, now is the time for the TNI, Polri and BIN security forces to act decisively in carrying out sweeps and pursuit of KST Papua and no longer disturb civilians.

Spokesperson (spokesperson) for the Vice President, Masduki Baidlowi stated that KH Ma’ruf Amin was very confident that all civil society in Bumi Cenderawasih himself also joined in strongly condemning all the brutal actions of the separatist and terrorist groups in Papua.

Together to continue to maintain peace in the Land of Papua is an effort that deserves to be continued because with this peace, it will also be able to further support efforts to accelerate development carried out by the Government of Indonesia in Cenderawasih Earth. Therefore, all parties should also give full appreciation and continue to fully support the strong commitment of all levels of the security apparatus to continue to uphold the law and prosecute KST Papua.
