Allegations of deliberate human rights violation by TNI

“There have been such allegations in Papua and West Papua. However, we have seen no evidence that such incidents are part of a deliberate or systematic campaign by the TNI or Government of Indonesia. In Indonesia, as in all countries, isolated incidents of abuse can, and do, occur despite the best efforts of any military institution.
