Indonesia do not close window of democracy in West Papua

Dear President Yudhoyono,

Herewith, I demand the release without pre-conditions Mr Buchtar Tabuni, a human rights activist and student leader from Papua Police custody.

Bucthar Tabuni was arrested for leading a peaceful demonstration in Jayapura, West Papua on the 16th of October 2008. The demonstration was to support the official launch of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua (IPWP) in London that took place at the UK Houses of Parliament on the 15th of October 2008. The launch of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua was an official event which was organized by All Party Parliamentary Group on West Papua that had already been formed one year ago.

The arrest of Buchtar Tabuni for subversive reasons does not follow principles and ethics of democracy.

Free West Papua Campaign and All Party Parliamentary Group on West Papua were responsible for the launch of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua. The organizers of IPWP launch were not in West Papua. Buchtar Tabuni and all West Papuans who went on the demonstration in support of the launch of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua were part of a democracy and what they were doing was only expressing their support for the launch of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua (IPWP).

I regret that the Indonesian state police have treated Buchtar Tabuni unfairly and accused him as a criminal and a subversive actor. This kind of behaviour really hurts the feelings of my people who love democracy, love and peace.

Buchtar Tabuni is neither a criminal nor a subversive actor. He is a West Papuan Human Rights defender and he fought for democracy and for his people who have suffered injustice in West Papua.
I therefore demand that you release Buctar Tabuni without pre-conditons.
Yours sincerely,
Benny Wenda
West Papuan Independence Leader in the UK
