EU Commission urges Indonesian Government to allow West Papua visit

February 21, 2022

The EU Commission, head of a bloc of 27 countries, has joined 81 countries in the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) and the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) in calling for Indonesia to stop blocking the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights from visiting West Papua.

Currently, there are over 60,000 people internally displaced inside West Papua. In the last 3 years alone, Indonesia has deployed over 25,000 additional troops to the region as they continue to reign terror against the West Papuan population.
