“The Papuan people should not be provoked by the video of the incident by two POM members at the Johannes Abraham Dimara Air Force Base in Merauke, Papua. This case has been handled directly by the Indonesian Air Force,” said the Regional Secretary of the Papua Province, Dance Julian Flassy, on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.
Dance explained that two members have been detained and will be punished according to the law. In fact, the TNI Commander and KASAU have apologized for what their members did.
“So there is no need to bring it up again, including the news must be packaged properly. The media can also provide good education,” said Dance to the media in Jayapura.
The Papuan government is currently communicating with religious and community leaders in Merauke so that this case can be immediately handled. Moreover, Papua will hold two major agendas, namely the National Sports Week [PON] XX and the National Paralympic Week XVI.
“Don’t let the provocative issue of the incident in Merauke disturb the implementation of these events, including the smooth implementation of the two events. Moreover, Merauke is one of the clusters for organizing PON XX,” said Dance.
