"Coordinating Legal, Political, and Security Affairs Minister Mahfud MD has dismissed documents on the victims of human rights violations in West Papua recently handed over to President Joko Widodo, calling them unimportant. The documents were handed over by Amnesty International Australia and Indonesian human rights lawyer Veronica Koman and fellow activists during the President’s state visit to Australia. Mahfud claimed the documents, which contain details on 57 political prisoners and 243 civilians who had been killed in Nduga, Papua since December 2018, were 'trash'."
