goodmorningpapua.com – A Chief of the Wikaya Tribe in Keerom Regency, Herman Yoku, urged the central government to immediately reveal 10 corruption cases in Papua Province, as previously stated by Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Mahfud MD in March 2021.
“Menkopolhukam several months ago said that there were 10 major corruption cases in Papua that would be unrevealed. My question is, is that statement correct and how far has it been handled?” said Herman Yoku, Monday, December 6, 2021.
He admitted that he was pessimistic about the statement that had made people in Papua feel they had the upper hand. Meanwhile, for suspected corruption, it is a serious threat.
“I have doubts, there should be no eye play, the triangle between the city, province and central districts, called the golden triangle of the government circle, so that it disappears (the alleged corruption case),” he said.
If the statement from the state official cannot be followed up or proven, continued the Papuan traditional leader, it is certain that there is a scenario deliberately played by the government, whatever form it takes.
In his view, if it is only in the form of reporting in the media with the aim of heating up the Papuan people, it is better (news of 10 major corruption cases in Papua) should not be published in Jakarta.
On the other hand, Herman Yoku insists law enforcement officials to investigate the alleged misuse of funds for the XX National Sports Week (PON) which was chaotic.
The allegation of fraud is based on the large number of demands for payment of arrears and the rights of volunteers, journalists, medical volunteers and other third parties have not been paid.
A member of the Papuan People’s Assembly (MRP) from the Indigenous Working Group asked President Joko Widodo to immediately order the National Police Chief, the Attorney General’s Office, and the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to investigate the use of Papua XX PON funds.
“Where’s the Gakum? Not only in Jakarta, the arrests are conducted, but in Papua aren’t. If there is no realization this December or until early 2022, I think Jakarta is playing with the officials in Papua. Papuans don’t believe anymore. That’s my statement,” he concluded.
