The Indonesian judicial system is a joke. The Indonesian military kills West Papuans with impunity. Yet the freedom of speech and association is nonexistent for West Papuans.
Last week The Jayapura Military Court sentenced First Private Hasirun to six months’ imprisonment for torturing and killing Papuan Rev. Kinderman Gire in March last year.
A panel of judges headed by Lt. Col. Adil found Hasirun, a member of the 753/AVT Nabire Batallion, guilty of disobeying orders by violently assaulting Kinderman, kompas.com reported.
West Papua is not immune to light sentencing for horrendous crimes.
Papuans (like Filep Karma) are being sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for raising an innocent flag, while a soldier who tortured and murdered an innocent West Papuan civilian was sentenced to six months.
