Pada dasarnya kita tidak bisa memiliki kedamaian, atau kondisi yang menumbuhkan kedamaian tersebut, kecuali jika kita mengakui hak-hak asassi tiap individu, kepentingan mereka, martabat mereka, dan setuju bahwa itu adalah hal dasar yang harus diterima di seluruh dunia.

Tidak pernah orang-orang mengeluh tentang universalitas hak asasi manusia, juga tidak menganggap HAM sebagai pemaksaan dari Barat atau Utara. Namun, hal itu kerap dilakukan oleh para pemimpin mereka.

Dear President-elect Joko Widodo,

I welcome the human rights pledges you made during your election campaign including your promise to address past human rights violations in Indonesia.

As part of your upcoming human rights agenda, I call on you to resolve the killing of prominent human rights defender Munir Said Thalib. Ten years after his murder, there remain credible allegations that all those responsible for his death have not been brought to justice.

The continuing lack of accountability for Munir’s killing provides a chilling reminder to human rights defenders in Indonesia that their work remains under threat.

Therefore I urge you to ensure that the following steps are taken as a matter of priority:

  1. A new, independent investigation is initiated by the police into the murder of Munir, to ensure that all perpetrators, at all levels, are brought to justice in accordance with international human rights standards;
  2. Publication of the official 2005 report into Munir’s killing as a key step towards establishing the truth; and
  3. A review of past criminal proceedings against those accused of involvement in Munir’s murder, and in particular investigate reports of witness intimidation.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ten years after the murder of human rights defender Munir Said Thalib, the Indonesian authorities have still failed to take decisive action to ensure all those responsible are brought to justice.

One of Indonesia’s most prominent human rights campaigners, Munir took up the cause of dozens of activists who had been subjected to enforced disappearances. He also helped to uncover evidence of military responsibility for human rights violations in Aceh, Papua and Timor-Leste (formerly East Timor).

On 7 September 2004, Munir was found dead on a flight from Jakarta to Amsterdam. An autopsy showed that he had been poisoned with arsenic. Although three people have now been convicted for their involvement in Munir’s death, there remain credible allegations that others, including at the highest levels of government, were responsible and have not been brought to justice.

In 2010, the National Human Rights Commission found flaws in the investigation and trial of a senior intelligence officer who was acquitted of soliciting and assisting in the killing of Munir. An official 2005 report into Munir’s killing by an independent fact-finding team remains unpublished.

The President-elect Joko Widodo who begins office at the end of October has made public commitments to resolve past human rights violations in Indonesia. Munir’s widow, Suciwati, told Amnesty: “I am just an ordinary person, woman, a mother, a wife who has been separated from her husband…I and the Indonesian people long for a President that is brave to act against perpetrators of human rights violations”.
