INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Commission for Missing Persons and Victims of Violence (Kontras) says there are nine homework records and must be completed by the TNI institution under the leadership of TNI Hadi Tjahjanto.
"The new TNI Commander-in-Chief must be able to change the face of a violent TNI into a humanist army and uphold the principles of human rights," Coordinator of the Kontras Workers' Body Yati Andriyani said in Jakarta on Thursday (7/12/2017)
According to Yati, it becomes very important considering the culture of violence which is a militaristic reflection as if it cannot be released from the TNI face to this day and still a scourge for civilian life.
Secondly, she added, it is important for new TNI Commander Candidates to review and re-evaluate TNI involvement directly in the Terrorism Bill, as it has the potential to crash into civil supremacy, open military spaces into the realm of law enforcement and threaten human rights.
Third, the newly nominated TNI Commander is encouraged to revise Law no. 31/1997 on Military Justice as the only means of accountability testing which is often used as the excuse of the disappearance of TNI officers in a number of criminal acts and human rights violations.
Fourthly, Yati argues that the TNI's Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto's success as the new TNI Commander is also related to TNI neutrality in political interests.
"This is the main task for TNI Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto to maintain political stability ahead of the 2018 regional head election simultaneously and 2019 General Election including not to issue political statements for political maneuvers," she told media crews,
Fifth, TNI Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto as a new TNI Commander candidate is also urged by Kontras to stop policies that are inconsistent with Law Number 34 Year 2004 on the Indonesian National Army and to thoroughly evaluate military-related operations.
Sixth, the new TNI Commander must also ensure that its members are not involved in any business practices to ensure the professionalism of the TNI institution.
While the seventh PR is conducting a thorough evaluation of the use of security approaches in conflict zones and the eighth PR is to re-harmonize inter-institutional.
Finally, Kontras urged the TNI Commander in the future should be able to give a breakthrough such as issuing documents of the Officers Honor Board (DKP) on the occurrence of gross human rights violations.
