OPM Separatist group claims responsibility for Papua police chief killing

The Free Papua Movement (OPM) has claimed responsibility for yesterday’s (24/10) fatal shooting death of a provincial police chief in Indonesia.

The reports say two men lunged at Dominggus Awes and pinned him down before shooting him in the head.

The incident reportedly happened in front of a plane at the airport in Puncak Jaya.

The separatist group’s coordinator Lambertus Pekkir believes that the military wing of OPM was behind the attack.

The Free Papua Organisation says even if they claimed to be OPM members, the organisation would not assume responsibility for their actions. Police would have to arrest the perpetrators and question them before making accusations.

The spokesman says he would trust the Indonesian police in handling the case.

Indonesia’s chief security minister Djoko Suyanto has instructed law enforcing agencies in Papua to take stern actions against perpetrators of violence and attacks on the government.(*wpnn)
