The problems that exist in the two youngest provinces of Indonesia, said Robert, really need serious attention.

Robert encouraged the government to open the door to the widest possible dialogue with all elements of society in Papua regarding the revision of the Papua Special Autonomy (Otsus) Law.

This dialogue is very important to ensure that the results of the revision truly fulfill the aspirations of the Papuan people.

"The current Papua Special Autonomy Law, the specificity is between existing and non-existent. Therefore, dialogue is very important, "he said.

Moreover, continued Robert, the situation in Papua is heating up quite a bit because many people, traditional leaders, religious leaders, youth leaders reject the special autonomy discussion. Some even asked for a referendum.

After all, Papuans are open to having a dialogue, ”continued the General Treasurer of the Central National Leadership Council (Depinas), the Indonesian Self-Help Employee Organization (SOKSI).
