Terhitung sejak 1 Juli 2016, Kapolda Papua, Paulus Waterpauw, memberlakukan Maklumat tentang “Kebebasan Menyampaikan Pendapat di Muka Umum” yang menyasar beberapa organisasi gerakan pembebasan Papua Barat.
On July 1st 2016, Papuan Police Chief Inspector Paulus Waterpauw, issued a decree on “Freedom of Expression” targeting West Papua pro-indenpendence organizations.
“The Papuan Police Chief Inspector is misguided because he uses some articles in the Criminal Code that are no longer valid. I think he should not use invalid articles in his decree shall his aim is to notify the citizens. In the decree, he mentions article 154 and 155. According to the Constitution Court’s decision Number 6/2007, those two articles are no longer applicable because these are against the Indonesian Constitution and were nullified. Therefore it is no longer used,” Gustaf Kawer, Papuan human rights lawyer.
