South Maluku Republic activist jailed for life JAKARTA - The leader of a secessionist group in Indonesia has been sentenced to life in prison for waving a separatist flag in front of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the nation's president. The incident was a major embarrassment to the president as he was attending a government ceremony in Maluku in June last year.

A court spokesman said the leader of the separatist group, Johan Teterisa, was sentenced to life imprisonment on Thursday in the provincial capital of Ambon after being found guilty of treason. The harshness of the punishment reflects Indonesia's sensitivity to separatist movements.

At least 19 others were convicted of treason and sentenced to between 10 and 20 years for their involvement in the protest, court officials said. Aides described Yudhoyono as being "livid" over the flag-waving incident.

    SARA EMARINA SOSELISA, of Netherlands Organization for International Development Cooperation, said there was a problem of internal displacement in the Indonesia Moluccas. For the last two years, the Moluccas had seen communal violence on a large scale. Since January 2000, more than 5,000 people had been killed. Accusations of bias on the part of the military and the police had been widely reported. It was estimated that the number of Moluccan IDPs had reached more than 400,000 people. Most of these had been evacuated from their villages to other destinations and camps within the Moluccas, and about 100,000 had moved to other parts of Indonesia.

    The organization requested the Commission to urge Indonesia to disseminate and apply in the field the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement, and to specifically provide protection and security guarantees to international and local humanitarian workers. Also, it suggested allowing the Special Representative on Internal Displacement to visit IDPs in the Moluccas and other relevant areas, and to improve law enforcement in the Moluccas and end impunity, since this was crucial to peace and reconciliation efforts.

    Flag of Bali:

    So, this flag from Bali is also not allowed? I've never seen it in Bali.

    B.t.w. it looks fairly familiar?

    So the Dutch allowed the Balinese to have their own flag in the time before 1950.

    It looks like the colonial suppression since then has become much severe.

    Currently the Balinese are not allowed to have their own flag.

    A clear sign on the wall. Emoticon: Yes!
