Development in Papua Must not Be Ceased by Terror Actions – Various acts of violence conducted by the Armed Criminal Group (KKB) and killed 11 residents in Nogolait Village, Kenyam District, Nduga Regency, Papua on Saturday (16/7/2022) have attracted the concern of many parties. Moreover, to make development in Papua hampered.

In this regard, a Chairperson of the MPR for Papua, Yorrys Raweyai, strongly suspects that the recent KKB actions have focused on conflict areas in Papua, which not only target Papuan Orang Asli (OAP), but also the general public who have been making a living as laborers. as well as settlers with various other livelihoods.

 “There is an impression that the KKB is carrying out terror by targeting residents who are not only OAP, but also the general public, including migrants who are living and making a living in Papua,” said Yorrys in the Dialectical Democracy Discussion entitled “KKB Papua Is Back in Action, In Where is the Presence of the State?” at the Media Center of the DPR RI, Parliament Complex, Senayan, Jakarta, Wednesday (20/7/2022).

This DPD RI member from the Papuan electoral district considered that the KKB action led by Egianus Kogoya was very disturbing and threatening the integrity of the Republic of Indonesia. Moreover, it was carried out in the midst of the efforts of the government and the Papuan people in developing Papua through the Special Autonomy for Papua Volume II. “Egianus Kogoya and his members are confusing the new order that they want to build together,” he said.

In addition, Yorrys explained that this Nduga incident was not the first time. Not to mention other sporadic actions. On that basis, the Chairman of Committee II DPD RI asked the government through the competent authorities to seriously and consistently eradicate the KKB to its roots. For him, it is urgent to do this in order to maintain conduciveness in the land of Papua, and to ensure that the acceleration of change through a series of policies as a derivative of Otsus Volume II can take place properly.

“The government through the competent authorities must take the measured and planned steps being able to restore the Papuan public’s trust and ensure a safe and conducive life order in responding to terror after terror perpetrated by the KKB,” he said.
