Indonesian Police in Jayapura West Papua are meting out arbitrary vengeance
after violent clashes with student demonstrators yesterday

18.00 EST Australia 17 March 2006


Indonesian BRIMOB Police are acting with impunity today in Jayapura,
shooting into dormitories and pulling Papuan people from their
cars.   Police actions in Jayapura appear to be arbitrary vengeance.


Students from Cenderawaih University today report that since this morning
until late today BRIMOB Police has been shooting at dormitories around the
University. Though not directly targeted individuals, the gunshots appear
to be a show of force to terrify the students inside. The informants state
that students are in the dormitories hiding and are terrified to leave.


A military helicopter is reported to be constantly flying low over the
campus today.
BRIMOB are reported to be patrolling the campus area and Abepura.


The same sources state that the BRIMOB have been stopping cars travelling
from Abepura to Jaya\w pura outside the BRIMOB offices in Kota
Rajah.   The BRIMOB are reported to be taking Papuans from their cars &
searching the cars.   After interrogation of the Papuans the BRIMOB
separate Coastal people and Highlanders. Some of the Papuan people are
being beaten during the interrogations.


At Skyline Jalan Baru and adjacent to the Autonomy Offices the BRIMOB
have blocked the road and stopping cars and taking Papuans from their
vehicles and beating them.


A church source stated that BRIMOB had taken two of the dead officers to
Sorong and Polopo Makassar. On route with the bodies the BRIMOB officers
are reported to be yelling threats and shooting indiscriminately.
