INDONESIA: Exploitation of mineral resources in Papua PDF Print E-mail

"A Statement from the Executive Director of the LP3BH forwarded by the Asian Human Rights Commission"

 

In the middle of the 1930s, a group of experts, Dr Jean Jaques Dozy, Dr A.H. Colijn and Ir F. Wissel who were employees of the Dutch company called NNGPM, went on an expedition to climb  the Cartensz Mountain  in the island of Papua during their vacation. When they reached the mountain, it was covered in snow. By chance, they found a mound that appeared to contain mineral deposits which appeared to be very extraordinary.

 

This journey of theirs  was the beginning of a series of expeditions during the era of the Dutch East Indies colonisation of the Land of Papua, which was known at the time as Dutch New  Guinea. They had discovered a mineral deposit which would prove to be more valuable than any other mineral source in the world.

 

As we now know, this led to the signing in 1967 of a Contract of Work between the Indonesian Government and one of the biggest mining companies in the world, Freeport C Moran, based in the USA which began to exploit this mine which is located on land owned by the Amungme people without these people ever being involved.

This mineral resource began to produce a number of minerals including copper, gold, silver and even uranium which resulted in the creation of a mining industry that became highly profitable as a source of revenue for the state.

" INDONESIA: West Papua 2014 Year in Review"

 

This report details incidents of human rights abuses and events that occurred in West Papua during 2014. It is by no means exhaustive. In the report AWPA uses the name “West Papua” to refer to the whole of the western half of the Island of New Guinea.  However, “West Papua” at this time is divided into two provinces, Papua and West Papua.

 

Summary of events

There was no improvement in the human rights situation in West Papua in 2014 The West Papuan people continued to suffer human rights violations from the Indonesian security forces throughout the year which ended tragically when the security forces fired into a crowd of approximately 800 peaceful demonstrators in Enarotali in the Panai regency of West Papua on Monday 8th December, killing five (one dying later from their injuries). Up to 20 others were reported injured some critical in hospital.

 

The climate of fear in Papua inhibits local people from publicly discussing security force abuses. The Witness and Victim Protection Agency can help Enarotali residents who wish to give their account to do so with greater safety. (Phelim Kine, deputy Asia director Human Rights Watch)

Jakarta, MAJALAH SELANGKAH -- Andreas Harsono dari Human Rights Watch (HRW) mengungkapkan saat ini negara terkesan mengisolasi rentetan kasus pelanggaran Hak Asasi Manusia (HAM) di Papua dengan tidak menyelesaikan secara tuntas pelaku kejahatan untuk diadili dan diproses secara hukum.

"Kekerasan yang dialami orang Papua sedang ditutupi pantauan pihak luar. Wartawan independen dan jurnalis internasional dilarang meliput masalah Papua. Hal seperti ini tidak mesti terjadi di negara yang menganut sistem demokrasi," ungkapnya dalam diskusi pembacaan situasi Papua yang digelar di rumahnya, Jakarta, Senin (12/1/2015) sore.
