Arrests made at ceremony in West Papua

There are currently hundreds of West Papuan political prisoners being held in West Papua and across Indonesia.

At least 6000 Indonesian soldiers and police, helicopters, Hercules airplanes and two warships will be deployed in West Papua to "maintain security" for the visit of the Indonesian President on Friday. The Head of the Indonesian Military in West Papua, General Fransen warned that security officers "would not hesitate to take any stern measures against anyone who wants to block the visit." Why does the Indonesian president need 6000 troops, helicopters, airplanes and warships to protect him?

At least soldiers and police officers will be deployed to maintain security during the visit of Indonesia's President Joko Widodo to the country's eastern region of Papua starting Friday.
