  1. These killings by “an unknown group” seems to be the old policy by the security forces to try to create a horizontal conflict between indigenous Papuans and migrants and between Christians and Muslims as in Ambon in 1999. Such a conflict would result in a general demand for more security forces. However, with this GKI Report it is quite clear who are the hidden brains behind all these killings. It is the Government of the Republic of Indonesia should do everything possible to bring the perpetrators and the masterminds to justice or to face the allegation of being an accomplice to the killings. .

Please leave a comment. Keep it nice to other users, and remember, no disrepect tolerated. Yell at the killers, not each other; Criticise the abusers deed, not their race or faith.. And please keep it relevant and punchy.
