Indonesia’s Human Rights Commission has sent a new team to remote Puncak Jaya region to investigate the May 30th torture of two Papuan farmers by the military.
Video footage of the torture, which involved burning of the Papuans’ genitals, was widely circulated last month via the internet.
Human Rights groups are concerned that the government is stalling on moves to investigate the torture, while the military has signalled that the perpetrators aren’t identifiable.
However, footage has been released in the past two days of one of the Papuan victims giving testimony about being tortured.
