Indonesia Highlights: The Police Find Financial Irregularities in Papua’s Special Autonomy | Father of Indonesian Soldier KIA in Papua Urge End of Conflict | Indonesia Readies 18 Million Covid-19 Vac

February 18, 2021, 06.54 AM

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.


Indonesia Readies 18 Million Covid-19 Vaccines for Second Mass Vaccination

The Indonesian Ministry of Health announced that it will distribute 18 million Covid-19 vaccines across Indonesia, as the government started the second stage of mass vaccinations throughout the country.

“[The Ministry of Health] will distribute 7.5 million doses of the vaccine to start the vaccination drive,” said the Ministry’s interim Director General for Disease Prevention and Control Maxi Rein Rondonuwu on Wednesday, February 17.

“This consignment will be followed by 11 million vaccine doses on the first week of March.” Maxi added that “the supply includes the [Sinovac] Covid-19 vaccines manufactured by the Bio Farma Indonesian pharmaceutical company.”

Maxi asserted that the Ministry will cooperate with the private sector to distribute the Covid-19 vaccines. “The private sector’s cooperation is needed to ensure that the vaccines arrive at their destinations intact, in good quality at their respective decisions,” he said.

Indonesia aims to vaccinate 38,513,446 people, namely 21.5 million elderly people and 16.9 million public servants in its second vaccine drive.

The groups prioritized in the country’s current vaccine drive included market vendors, lecturers, and clerics. Other groups included legislators, government officials and journalists.
