Empowering Papuans to Oversee the Special Autonomy Fund

goodmorningpapua.com – A Coordinator of the Indonesian Anti-Corruption Society (MAKI), Boyamin Saiman, shared his experience in 2012 in overseeing the misappropriation of special autonomy funds (otsus) in Papua. He said that there are a number of ways that public officials often use the special autonomy funds for personal interests, one of which is by transferring money to the personal accounts of family members. From his experience, Boyamin stated that the KPK needs to empower local communities so that they can oversee the allocation of the Papua Special Autonomy funds.

“If then the KPK is still dealing with several regional heads including the regent and not now I fully support and hopefully this will be more intense so that the special autonomy funds can reach the community. Even yesterday there were allegations that funds to build places of worship were also suspected of being corrupted and has been a suspect by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and that’s a case that I fully monitor,” said Boyamin via his short message, Monday, September 19, 2022.

“Citizens should also be given a lesson in empowering awareness to control to be willing to monitor these funds. The KPK must ensure that people are more courageous to control these funds, not only eradicating, but the KPK’s job is to empower the community to dare to control,” he added. .

Previously, the KPK had stipulated a Papuan Governor, Lukas Enembe, as a suspect in a corruption case. He was announced as a suspect along with the Regent of Central Mamberamo, Ricky Ham Pagawak, and the Regent of Mimika Eltinus Omaleng. Only Eltinus has been detained by the KPK.

“On this occasion, I would also like to convey to the people of Papua in particular, that regarding the appointment of the suspect RHP (Ricky Ham Pagawak / Regent of Central Mamberamo) and also the Governor of LE (Lukas Enembe) this is to follow up on community reports and also various information received by the KPK, “said Deputy Chairman of the KPK Alexander Marwata at the KPK Building, Jakarta, Wednesday (14/9/2022).

In this case, the KPK stated that it had carried out a number of legal procedures, such as the submission of a summons by the KPK Investigation Team to the Governor of Papua on September 7, 2022, for examination on September 12, 2022 at the Mako Brimob Papua. In addition, Ali Fikri said that the KPK did not only take action.

“KPK is also present to Papua through coordination and supervision activities to mitigate the risk of corruption in the management of tourism funds. This is to encourage the advancement of tourism potential in Papua. So that it has an impact on increasing the economy for the Papuan people,” explained Alexander.
