VIVAnews - Member of Commission III at the House of Representatives (DPR), Eva Sundari, said the series of mysterious shootings in Papua will not taper off should the government take the weak side. The Indonesian president must be bold in making decisions in an effort to deal with the problem.
"The main problem lies on the President. He has a deficit in leadership," said Eva in the parliamentary complex today.
The lawmakers said the problems in Papua have in fact been identified. Economic issues and lack of security forces are held accountable of the escalating situation.
Moreover, suggestions as to how to solve the matters in Papua had been proposed to the government. "As long as SBY [Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono] does act in answer to the problem, more shootings would take place," she said.
The situation will strengthen the Free Papua Movement (OPM), which has been insisting on liberating the province from Indonesia.
In the past two months, a series of unrecognized shooters have been terrorizing the people with unexpected attacks. Civilians, military personnel, police officers and foreigners have been their targets.
Jakarta has instructed the security forces on duty to crack on perpetrators.
Presidential spokesperson, Julian Aldrin Pasha, said reports on the shootings in Papua had been delivered to the President.
"We're investigating the cases. No statements have yet to be circulated by now," said Julian on Wednesday, June 6th.
