TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Former army strategic reserves command chief of staff Major General (ret.) Kivlan Zen has urged the government to listen to recommendations being drafted in the two-day long Anti-Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) Symposium initiated by former military personnel and mass organizations who are dissatisfied with the results of the government-led symposium on 1965 tragedy.

Kivlan has specifically called on the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affaris Luhut Binsa Pandjaitan to take into account 9 recommendations from the anti-PKI symposium. “If the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affaris Luhut fails to take the symposium’s recommendations into account, he would have betrayed his seniors [in the military],” Kivlan said after the symposium in Balai Kartini, Jakarta, June 2, 2016.

The recommendations would counterbalance that of the symposium of the 1965 tragedy that is deemed impartial by some, particularly former military members.

Kivlan said that he would give some lessons on communism for Luhut. “To teach him that the PKI is real and for him to understand it."
