TEMPO.CO, JakartaNational Police have apprehended Buchtar Tabuni who is the deputy head of United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) on Wednesday, September 11. Buchtar has even named suspect for his involvement in the riots in Papua last August.

“Yes, he has been arrested. Papua Regional Police HQ are still examining him,” said Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Dedi Prasetyo in PTIK Auditorium, South Jakarta, Wednesday, September 11.

However, Dedi stopped short of detailing the role of Buchtar and his relations with Benny Wenda, one of the Papuan figures who is accused of masterminding riots in Papua and West Papua.

Buchtar is charged with articles on treason and others, Dedi added.
