Wirya, the co-ordinator of the NGO Foker in Biak Numbir, said that Enos Lokobal and his colleagues have been suffering from lumbago and have been taken to hospital for treatment but they are still in pain.
According to Wirya, Jafrai Murib went to hospital to be treated for malaria. [Several types of malaria are mentioned here.] As a result of his condition, he has become very pale. Apok Lakobal has been ill since November last year. His right side is paralysed and he is unable to move; the doctor at the hospital said that he has had a stroke.
After the ammunitions dump was attacked, Enos Lakobal was sentenced to fifteen years, while Jafrai Murib and Numbangga were given life sentences.
