Progrev.org. Vanuatu Prime Minister, Chariot Salwai has conducted public deception involving the name Pope Francis on the issue of Papua released through the medium of the Pacific Islands News Association (PINA) some time ago. The action was very unfortunate because it was conducted against a world figures such as Pope Francis who incidentally was a leader of the Catholic Church and also as head of the Vatican City State is highly respected by religious communities throughout the world.
According to Chariot Salwai statement carried by local media such Vanuatu, Chariot Salwai have submitted their alleged human rights violations in West Papua and the statement delivered during a discussion with Pope Francis in Rome when discussing the issue of climate change 11 November 2017 ago. Audience with Pope Francis in Rome attended by 6 leaders of the Pacific, accompanied by senior government officials and heads of other regional organizations. Chariot Salwai say that the world can not change a deaf ear to accusations of human rights violations that have lasted long in West Papua.
Vanuatu PM statement regarding alleged human rights violations when an audience with the Pope Francis has no correlation with the actual conditions in Papua and tendentious to twist the facts and tend to stray from the topic of conversation. Vanuatu Prime Minister has made a statement manipulative by linking the issue of alleged human rights violations in West Papua.
At the time of the Annual Session of the Human Rights Council Perhimbunan United Nations (UN Human Rights) in Geneva, Switzerland on March 4th, 2014 and then, Nicholas Messet, Former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Free Papua Movement (OPM) states furious (mad) on the speech of Prime Minister ( PM) Vanuatu Moana carcasses Kalosil (before it was replaced with PM Chariot Salwai). At that time, Moana call in Papua is still a lot of gross human rights violations.
As leaders of Papua, Nicholas Messet feel stung his ears to hear a speech that said origin. “Vanuatu PM’s speech is unfounded and an element of political cover,” he said in a press statement at the Emperor Hotel, South Jakarta, Wednesday (26/3).
Nicholas Messet also mention statement Vanuatu PM it is a big lie. For proof photograph circulating on the Internet issued by the Prime Minister of Vanuatu at a hearing in Geneva it was a picture in the 1970s, but it was engineered as if it is the current situation in Papua. “He said every day human rights violations in Papua. Whereas the old photographs in the 1970s, “he regrets.
After the reform era, marked by the fall of the authoritarian New Order regime in 1998, Papua was much better. According to Nicholas Messet, now Papua is experiencing economic growth and development of good infrastructure, including the area of law enforcement.
“Indeed, we do not deny, absolutely no human rights violations in the years 1970 from Aceh to Papua. There is a massive violation of human rights at the time of the new order ruled. But since May 21, 1998, the fall of Suharto, human rights abuses are no longer “he said. Nicholas Messet remind Prime Minister of Vanuatu is the prime minister of a small country that should not be careless in the accused.
Public deception no less fierce with WMD (weapon of mass destruction). It should be underlined here that the Vanuatu Islands are far from perfect in the implementation and protection of human rights. Vanuatu still faces serious human rights issues. Corruption is rampant in all sectors of the society and the government. And human trafficking continues. Children face a continuous torture and violence against women, unfortunately this is a daily routine. It will be for the improvement of their population if the government of the island of Vanuatu give serious attention and priority to their domestic problems instead of always interfering in other country’s internal problems.
