Shocking footage emerges from Sunset Merona raids

Highly distressing video footage has emerged showing the aftermath of the Sunset Merona operation on West Papuan refugee settlements in Vanimo, Papua New Guinea earlier this year. The Sunset Merona operation was conducted by members of Papua New Guinea’s police and defence forces following heavy diplomatic pressure by the Indonesian authorities.

The footage provides compelling evidence of violation of the UN Charter for Refugees, and is being forwarded to the UN.

Highly distressed women and children are seen amongst the charred remains of their villages, and there are also interviews with those who fled describing what happened. More than 6 months on, many of these refugees are still hiding in the jungle with limited access to food, water and shelter.   The footage was filmed by Australian filmmaker David Fedele.
