Indonesian Police Arrest Papuan Separatist Agitator

Police in the Indonesian province of Papua has arrested Victor Yeimo, a Papuan agitator affiliated with the Free Papua Movement who has been suspected of masterminding riot in the restive territory between August to September 2019.

“The Nemangkawi Task Force captured Victor at the provincial capital Jayapura on Sunday, where he has been at large since September 2020,” said Papua Regional Police chief Inspector General Mathius D. Fakhiri on Monday, May 10.

“Victor is wanted [for the August-September 2019 unrest] as well as a number of offenses,” he added without specifying the charges. Nemangkawi Task Force head Police Grand Commissioner Iqbal Alqudusy reiterated Fakhiri.

“As the head of the National Committee of West Papua [KNPB], Victor was known as an agitator who made inflammatory speeches and masterminded a number of protests in Papua,” he said, as quoted by the Antara state news agency.

Indonesian authorities charged Victor with treason, spreading misinformation, as well as defaming symbols of state in his role in the 2019 unrest.

If found guilty, he faces five to 15 years in prison, and fines of up to Rp. 500 million [$35,266.40].
