, Index number: ASA 21/015/2003

Seven men detained at Jayawijaya District Military Command in Wamena town have been transferred to police detention at Wamena Police Resort and have been allowed access to legal representation. It is unclear if they have been charged, and although they are at a lower risk of torture in police detention, Amnesty International remains concerned for their safety. Nine military personnel from Jayawijaya Kodim, who have also been accused of involvement in the attack, are detained in the district military police headquarters in Jayapura. The nine have been charged with various offences under military law. Two of them, charged with direct involvement in the attack, may face the death penalty. There is no information about the treatment of the nine, but there are concerns for their safety.
