Your comments on the death of Mulia police chief Adj. Comr. Dominggus Octavianus Awes, after he was shot on Monday, bringing the total death toll to 12 as part of a string of violence taking place in Papua this month:

People must be very saddened and concerned by the death of Mulia Police chief Adj. Comr. Dominggus Oktavianus Awes.

The government should prioritize and intensify dialogue rather than taking a repressive approach. To face this problem, the government should become “a good father” to the province.

I hope the central government will be more serious about improving the quality and the availability of education there.

Intensive cooperation should also be fostered among the local government and traditional leaders and religious figures, because those leaders can more readily calm their angry followers.

Nothing has changed since Soeharto. What can you expect from a system in which the military’s influence is still everywhere, including both within the House and at the top of the executive branch of

What is the difference between Indonesia’s present day regime and that of Soeharto?

I think the cop killer must be connected to those behind the killing of six victims during the congress riot. It is so obvious that there is a person or group that opposes the congress of Selfius Bobii and
his supporters.

Internal conflict among pro-independence groups were plain as day before the congress was planned. Lambert Pekikir, the Free Papua Movement (OPM) leader, was apparently turned away by the congress, and so was the West Papua National Committee (KNPB) with Tabunies and Benny Wenda’s International Lawyers for West Papua (ILWP) or International Parliamentarians for West Papua (IPWP), or the killer could even be a Herman Wainggai follower.

There must be a conspiracy behind the events, and one of the pro-independence groups was involved and disrupted the congress by killing its own people.


As we know, many officials in our country are involved in corruption and unfortunately the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), which is officially fighting corruption, works very slowly.

The KPK, which should be independent in its work, has too much involvement from members of the House of Representatives and other constituents. Because of this, the image of the KPK is a body that really fights for those who are corrupt. It seems useless. Some people even want to abort it.

Why is that? Well, we know that police officers, tax officers and justice officers can be corrupt. I think that the law should be applied consistently so that it becomes a deterrence for these people.

The government is reviving its family planning program, which was introduced during the Soeharto era, as the population closes in on 240 million. What do you think?
