4 More Innocent Papuan Students Murdered By Indonesian Police

JAYAPURA - It brings us great sadness to report, we have received information that today 4 more innocent West Papuan people were shot dead by the Indonesian police and intelligence in Jayapura, West Papua.

Safusek Kabak, Demi Kepno, Yenias Wandikmbo and Yan Gideon Tabuni.

According to reports, they were at the local market today when armed members of the Indonesian police and intelligence approached them, alongside Indonesian migrants.

They tried to kill the activists who panicked and tried to escape but were shot by Indonesian intelligence/police.

Those shot were taken to the Bhayangkara police/military hospital and when confirmed dead, were taken to the morgue.

It is not yet know whether the men received any treatment, nor whether they were shot dead at the market place or died in later hospital.

Friends and family of the victims were only able to retrieve the body of Safusek Kabak and are seen in this photo grieving over his body.

We understand that this is a very distressing image but it is very important that such pictures are published to show the world what the Indonesian police and military is doing in West Papua.

The KNPB and family of the victims sent us this information and asked that we publish this story so that the international community will understand what is really happening to our people.

The Indonesian military has threatened to "destroy anyone who boycotts the Indonesian elections".

This latest tragic story comes at the same time at least 36 other Papuans, most of them KNPB activists have been arrested in the last two weeks ahead of the mass boycott of the Indonesian elections to be carried out on 9th July.

We are incredibly concerned about the safety of those still in police custody and we are calling on all supporters to please contact the Indonesian police and prison authorities and tell them that the world is watching them and that we demand that all political prisoners be immediately released.

We will provide the relevant contact details below

The murder of our four brothers is an act of extreme brutality which we fully condemn.

State police cannot murder 4 innocent people in the middle of the street and not expect to face justice for their crimes.

Wit their spirits, we will continue to struggle on in the vision of the murdered activists, Safusek Kabak, Demi Kepno, Yenias Wandikmbo and Yan Gideon Tabuni.

We desperately need help from the outside world.

Please keep our people in your hearts and prayers, especially at this time of great tragedy.

Thank you all very much

Rest in peace dear brothers.

You did not die in vain. One day your people will finally be free
