Activist: Indonesia likely to veto any Pacific monitoring mission in West Papua

by

Pacific Island leaders will consider launching a fact-finding or monitoring mission to investigate reported human rights abuses in the Indonesian province of West Papua at this meeting of the Pacific Islands Forum.

Aid and human rights groups from across the region have been urging governments to act, saying the situation in West Papua is getting worse.

Rex Rumakiek is the secretary-general of the West Papuan National Coalition for Liberation and is in Port Moresby for the Forum.

He told the ABC’s Eric Tlozek it’s unlikely that Indonesia will approve any sort of monitoring mission.
