Komnas HAM Hopes Jokowi to be Committed in Enforcing Human Rights

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) deputy chairperson Ansori Sinungan hoped elected president Joko "Jokowi" Widodo is committed to enforce human rights.

Jokowi should fulfill, protect, enforce, and improve human rights. “These are in accordance with his visions-mission and promises during his campaign,” he said at his office, Friday, August 29.

In a different occassion, Komnas Ham member Muhammad Nurkhoiron said he had met with Jokowi-Jusuf Kalla Transition Team's deputy, Andi Widjajanto on Thursday, August 28.

Nurkhoiron spoke about Hendropriyono, one of the member of Jokowi's Transition Team, who is a former head of State Intelligence Agency (BIN). Hendropriyono is allegedly involved in human rights violation when he was still the head of BIN. Nurkhoiron asked Andi whether Hendropriyono's cases of human rights violation will still be investigated deeper or not.

According to the Commission for Missing Persons and Victims of Violence's (KontraS) records, Hendropriyono had been suspected of being involved in a number of cases of human rights violations when he was a member of the Indonesian Military (TNI).

Hendropriyono had also been suspected of in a murder case of human rights activist, Munir Said Thalib, September 7, 2004. At that time, he was the head of BIN. Until yesterday, a refusal petition has been signed by more than thousands of netizens.
