The government has sent a letter to the Indonesian parliament [DPR] to revise a number of articles on Papuan special autonomy to prevent misuse of the funds. Parliament heeded the government’s plea by forming a special committee on Papua province’s special autonomy.

The government has allocated more than Rp. 93 trillion [$6,634,787,400] for Papua province’s special autonomy since 2002, as well as Rp. 33.94 trillion [$2,421,340,692] for West Papua province’s special autonomy since 2009.

Father of Indonesian Soldier KIA in Papua Urge End of Conflict

The father of Indonesian Army Private Ginanjar Arianda has spoken out against the ongoing conflict in Papua, two days after his son was killed in action fighting insurgents or so-called ‘armed criminal groups’ [KKB] in the province’s Intan Jaya district last Monday.

“No other [Indonesian] soldiers should die in action in Papua. Let [the killing] end with my son,” said Dede Nanda during the funeral for Private Ginanjar at his hometown of Banjar, West Java on Wednesday, February 17.

“The government should find a way to peacefully resolve the Papuan conflict. There have been enough deaths and killing in the province.”

The army posthumously promoted Ginanjar to the rank of Private First Class following his death in action at the village of Mamba. He was serving with the Raider Task Force 400 at the time of his death.

Ginanjar was the seventh Indonesian serviceman to be killed in action in Intan Jaya since tensions flared in the area on December 2019.
