Jakarta NGOs Reject the Plan to Train Kopassus

New statement by Jakarta NGOs call for U.S. not to resume training of Kopassus. They focus on the case of the disappeared in 1997-98 which "is still in limbo with no clarity on what will happen although a plenary session of the Indonesian Parliament (DPR) adopted four recommendations for implementation by the Indonesian government."
All this discussion about ending the ban on programes of joint collaboration is a sign that the government regards these past incidents as having been resolved, while nothing has been done to restore the rights of the victims or punish those who were responsible.
