Indonesia: Release peaceful demonstrators in Papua The Indonesian government should immediately release more than a dozen Papuans detained for raising the Papuan "Morning Star" flag in Fakfak, a major city in western Papua, Human Rights Watch said today. Human Rights Watch called on the Indonesian government to launch an investigation into the excessive use of force by the Indonesian police, who beat and kicked the activists during the arrests on July 19, 2008. "Once again, the Indonesian authorities have stopped Papuans from peacefully expressing their political views," said Elaine Pearson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch. "The police should not resort to violence to suppress political activism."

Indonesia: free political prisoners in Papua At least 18 Papuans are serving sentences in Indonesian jails simply for peaceful acts of freedom of expression and opinion, Human Rights Watch said in a new report released today. Such imprisonment violates international law and Indonesia's international legal obligations. The 42-page report, "Protest and Punishment: Political Prisoners in Papua," documents how the Indonesian government continues to use the criminal law to punish individuals who peacefully advocate for independence in the eastern Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Irian Jaya (hereafter referred to as Papua). All the prisoners have been convicted for treason or spreading hatred against the government, for nonviolent activities such as flag-raising, or attendance at peaceful meetings on self-determination options for Papua.

Indonesia pilot jailed for murder of activist A Jakarta court on Tuesday sentenced an off-duty Indonesian pilot to 14 years in jail for planning the murder of a top human rights activist during a flight on the national carrier Garuda last year. Human rights groups have said the trial over the killing of Munir Thalib was a litmus test of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's promise to build a more open and accountable Indonesia after decades of authoritarian rule and rights abuses.

Suharto tops world corruption league Former dictator Suharto has topped a list of the world's most corrupt politicians over the past two decades. The list is part of Transparency International's new Global Corruption Report 2004, which charts the flow of stolen assets, recommends ways to recover money looted by despots, and sets out new standards on political finance and favors. Transparency International says Suharto stole about $15 billion to $35 billion during his 32 years of rule in a country where the Gross Domestic Product per capita hovers at around $700.

ABDUL Latief unsteadily enters the office of a Jakarta human rights group with a young man at his elbow. He struggles to mouth an intelligible greeting, the consequence of a stroke he suffered some years ago. Latief, a retired colonel, is a member of a dwindling generation to have an intimate recollection of the rise of modern Indonesia. He was witness to, and a crucial participant in, the events that produced the regime of former president Suharto.

Voter perceptions of the qualities of individual leaders appear to play an important part in Indonesian elections, according to the earlier mentioned survey. Megawati Soekarnoputri was the clear favorite of voters according to our data, and probably pulled the Indonesian Democratic Party (PDI Perjuangan) along with her. The difference between the former Indonesian Nationalist Party's (PNI) 22 percent in 1955 and PDI Perjuangan's 34 percent in 1999 is almost certainly due in part to Megawati's appeal. Various actions of Megawati, such as her support for the reelection of Governor Sutiyoso in Jakarta, have been widely condemned. Many local observers also claim that she will be hurt by the slowness of economic recovery and by evidence that she is unwilling to fight corruption.

Gusmao sweeps East Timor poll East Timor's former resistance leader, Xanana Gusmao, completed his transformation yesterday from jungle fighter to global statesman when he took an unassailable lead in the fledgling nation's first ever presidential election. With more than 90% of the votes counted, the former poet and seminarian, who says he would rather be a photographer or farmer than a politician, has 79% of the votes.

Back in May 1998 I wrote that “the departure of Suharto as President Indonesia will very probably be followed by the emergence of new political forces and the disappearance or decline of old established forces.” I had no inkling at that time that there would be 98 political parties trying to win the trust of the people and competing for seats at the national, provincial, and district parliaments. I also had no foreboding that the competition for seats in the executive offices would so truculent and create the culture of “money politics.” I was also entirely unprepared for a new political game that at the end made a winner become the big loser, while a collection of losers become the winner.
