HRW: Indonesia: UN Rights Visit Can Challenge Discrimination, Impunity (incl: Papua)

Human Rights Watch
New York

Plight of Religious Minorities and Papua Abuses Are Serious, Ongoing
Problems

The visit of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
Navanethem Pillay is an opportunity to highlight concerns about
discrimination against religious minorities and impunity for state
security forces in Indonesia, Human Rights Watch said today. Pillay is
on an official visit to Jakarta from November 12-13, 2012.

“We hope the visit of High Commissioner Pillay will spotlight the
country’s most serious human rights challenges,” said Brad Adams,
Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “Indonesia should realize that
religious discrimination, impunity, and the deterioration in rule of
law is a recipe for violence, abuses, and lawlessness.” -end-
