The raid is emblematic of both the Indonesian government’s failure to deliver on promises of accountability for past human rights abuses in Papua and its willingness to take heavy-handed measures to stifle public discussion about those violations.

Since early July, officers in the host city Jakarta have allegedly shot 52 people and killed 11 during the arrests of 320 citizens over 10 days.

It’s triggered fears that police have a “license to kill”, comparable with the Philippines’ war on drugs waged by President Rodrigo Duterte.

Lao Hamutuk: Confronting Timor-Leste's temporary cash flow problem.

The National Parliament is already considering a revision to the Petroleum Fund Law and the Budget and Financial Management Law. This proposal goes too far too fast, and is beyond the State’s immediate needs. The proposed revisions would authorize new loans and fail to specify the amount of money which can be transferred from the Petroleum Fund.

Those who ordered the bugging of Timor should be prosecuted - not those who properly exposed the crime.

Nuclear weapons present a real and imminent threat to humanity, thus Indonesia should not loosen efforts towards nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. Ratifying the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons means Jakarta is greatly concerned about the slow pace of disarmament.

So at the same time as Australia was providing millions of dollars in aid to help the fledgling nation of East Timor get on its feet, it's alleged to have been covertly acting to prevent the Timorese from getting billions of dollars in oil and gas revenues from the Timor Sea, with Australian company Woodside set to benefit the most.

One crucial question here is whether ASIS has been used in other operations to benefit well-connected corporate entities, to the detriment of Australia’s real national security needs.

Perhaps Witness K might reveal this in court - which might be in the public interest but most unwelcome to the government, which is anxious to send a message to other unhappy ASIS officers not to speak out of turn. Perhaps a Royal Commission into the use and misuse of ASIS rather than a criminal trial will be needed to resolve this question.

Amnesty: Indonesian forces behind unlawful killings in Papua https://buff.ly/2tJWijW

Indonesia’s police and military are responsible for at least 95 unlawful killings in the easternmost Papua region since 2010, including targeted slayings of activists, Amnesty International said Monday, condemning a near-total absence of justice for the mainly indigenous victims.
