AMP or commonly known as the Alliance of Papuan Students that has been known as a fighter for human rights and independence for West Papua, turned out to hide a real depravity. Recently, this organization was in the spotlight due to a sex scandal allegedly commited by the leader of this movement.
Frans Nawipa, head of AMP-Jakarta, has molested female members of the AMP. Because of his depraved behavior, three victims suffered trauma. There was even a victim (OB) who must undergo therapy due to the incident. Unfortunately, until now the victims have not been protected by the law enforcement. None of them dared to take this case to the authorities because of the threats from the perpetrator.
That is not the first time Frans Nawipa has acted. A few months earlier he had sexist verbal abuse several times at the AMP national forum. Some AMP administrators have issued subpoena and warnings, but Frans has been ignored them.
Last March 2018, the Central Committee of the Papuan Student Alliance (KP-AMP) held a trial to clarify the victims and finally issued a letter of dismissal to Frans Nawipa, signed by the Chairperson of the AMP, Jhon Gobai. Even so, many members actually defended Frans Nawipa regarding his many contributions to the organization.
Frans Nawipa’s actions are evidence of the moral depravity of someone who claim to be human rights fighters. Instead of upholding human rights, he in fact, has violated the human rights of women who deserve to be respected.
