Indonesia: The killing of Jery Manafe

, Index number: ASA 21/028/1994

On 20 April 1994 Jery Manafe, a 21 year old university student, was beaten to death by a group of ten police officers and cadets in Kupang, West Timor, Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT). The apparent motive was Jery's involvement in a fight with a plainclothes policeman earlier the same evening. Following angry public protests police authorities publicly condemned the behaviour of the ten policemen and said that they would be dismissed from the service and tried in a military court.
