Suppression of political protest in West Papua

This report by UK-based NGO, TAPOL, forcefully challenges the Indonesian government’s repeated assertion that the country has ‘no political prisoners.’

The 31-page report, ‘No political prisoners? The suppression of political protest in West Papua‘ documents the cases of 40 detainees who were known to be in prison at the end of March 2013, challenging the Indonesian government’s claim that there are no political prisoners in West Papua, but only criminals who have broken the law.
