TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Human rights group Imparsial, has urged the government to evaluate the actions of the Indonesian Armed Forces in Papua.

Imparsial direcor Al Araf said that recent violence in the easternmost province had escalated and was becoming an increasing concern. Imparsials research, he said, showed the governments militaristic approach was creating tension in the region.

The indicators show an increased number of soldiers, he said.

The soldiers are financed by funds from the state, provincial and private budget. There are 14,842 soldiers in Papua, comprising 13,000 Army soldiers, 1,272 Navy and 570 Air Force personnel. The number is estimated to gradually increase to 17,980 personnel.

A brutal riot occurred in Papua when the provincial General Elections Commission (KPUD) rejected the registration of regent candidate Simon Alom after Gerindra Party chairman Elvis Tabuni withdrew his support. Last month Simons supporters attacked Elvis home. Nineteen people were killed in the incident.

House of Representatives (DPR) Commission I member, Tubagus Hasanuddin, said that a number of cases of violence between soldiers and the public had made people skeptical about the role of the armed forces in the region.

He agreed that even a small military operation should be based on the president or the DPRs consent, adding that he has not heard of a request to conduct a military operation in Papua.

The police have delayed the investigation of Ilaga provincial head election incident. We havent enforced anything to maintain peace and stability, said the Indonesian Police Public Relations head, Insp. Gen. Anton Bachrul Alam.
