goodmorningpapua.com – A chairman of the Jayapura Regency Religious Harmony Forum (FKUB), Alberth Yoku, urged Papuan Governor Lukas Enembe to have the courage to face the legal case that trapped him. He asked Lukas Enembe to follow the example of other Papuan officials who dared to take responsibility for their actions.
“Like our parents, our brothers and sisters, such as Mr. Barnabas Suebu, Jhone Ibo, the regent who has the current case, and other officials, they are gentle with the legal process. People say Papua has a lot of corruption, so prove it. If he is guilty, he is responsible, if not, he is free,” said Alberth Yoku, Sunday (18/9/2022).
Alberth hoped that this chivalrous attitude could dampen the emotions of the people who had been disturbing security in Papua. “If it’s gentle, it won’t be a boomerang that triggers tribal emotions, regional emotions, by holding demonstrations and others,” he said.
He emphasized that Tabi Land is customary land where if people do something wrong, there will be sanctions, on the other hand, if they do something right, they will be praised and respected. So the principle of truth must be upheld.
“People see Papua as the poorest province, the most corrupt and the lowest HDI (Human Development Index, ed) and also for the lack of good governance and an uncomfortable province. In this situation, we all must have a shared vision and mission, that Papuans are have self-respect, integrity both in customs and faith. The principles of honesty and truth must be visited high to change the paradigm,” he said.
“If it’s wrong, it’s a process that educates us so that in the future we don’t do it. In the case of Mr. Lukas Enembe and Ricky Ham Pagawak, we as Papuans, educated people, respect the legal process, so we respect the process,” he continued. He also asked the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to carry out fair and transparent law enforcement so as not to cause polemics.
“To the KPK, the Police and the Prosecutor’s Office, we ask for a fair legal process, so that there is no language in criminalization and others,” he said. “I appeal to all Papuan people, I as one of the religious leaders in the Tabi customary area, I convey that what happened to Governor Lukas Enembe, we must respect the ongoing legal process, we don’t have to scapegoat anyone. Let’s work honestly and fairly there is no other interest.
I also hope that the Governor is given strength by God so that he can say something and be able to accept whatever happens to the problems that occur,” he concluded. For your information, the KPK has named the Governor of Papua, Lukas Enembe as a suspect. The Democrat is suspected of having received bribes and gratuities related to the project in Papua.Unfortunately, the KPK has not disclosed in detail the construction of the case against Lukas Enembe because the KPK has not yet carried out the process of arresting and detaining Lukas Enembe.
Lukas has been prevented from traveling abroad by the Directorate General (DG) of Immigration of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Kemenkumham) at the request of the KPK. He was prevented from traveling abroad for the next six months from September 7, 2022 to March 7, 2023.
