Subject: FREE DITA SARI & ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS

Subject:  Assistence of ill treatment of PRD's activists deteinees

In relation the raid and subsequent disturbances which took place after the
military forces and the supporter of PDI dissidants Suryadi raided the
office of the Indonesian Democratic Party (PDI) in Jakarta on 27 & 28 July
1996, the government is blaming the Partai Rakyat Demokratik ( People's
Democratic Party - PRD) for masterminding the disturbances and has been
accused by the authorities of having communist links.  Since then, the
Indonesian Government has issued threats against the PRD's activists and
the pro-democracy organisations that it has given orders for demonstrator
be 'shot on site' and 'state of emergency' which it alleges played a role
in the riots.

We are  seriously concerned for the safety of those arrested that we
believes, the authorities have continued to arrest activists and member of
pro-democration organisation, especially to PRD's activists which it
alleges were behind the disturbances, some of whom are being held in
militry custody or are being held without access to lawyers, greatly
heightening the rist of torture or ill-treatment.

Two leading members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PRD), I  Gusti Astika
Anom (male) and Wilson (male), were captured by the military in  Java's
third largest city, Semarang, on 9 September. Five other  PRD activists
were caught with them but have since been released.  Wilson and I Gusti
Astika Anom have been held in the Ungaran, Semarang, Central Java, Regional
police and there are now reports that they are being handed over to BIA
(Armed Forces Intelligence Agency), one of the state intelligence services.

Anti-subversion legal clauses were to be applied to him, which could carry
sentences of 20 years in prison or even life imprisonment.

According to the regulation of interrogation conducting that the time of
their detention has supossed the established 20 days limit.  All the
following are suspects violate the principle of "suspects should be viewed
as innocents."

Both Wilson and I Gusti Astika Anom were key speakers at the June
international  conference on East Timor held at the University of
Technology,  Sydney and University of Sydney earlier this year. Wilson is
the Coordinator of SPRIM (Indonesian People in Solidarity with the Maubere
People) and led 40 Indonesians and 40 East Timorese inside the grounds of
the Dutch Embassy last December 7 in a protest against the Suharto
dictatorship's occupation of East Timor. I Gusti Astika Anom is the head of
the Education and Organisation Department of the PRD.

We are very appreciates if you could like to take this question as, however,
the human rights priority action that the disturbances have been used as a
pretext by the authorities to clamp down on peaceful activists and
opposition groups who will, however, continue to struggle for social
justice, peace and democracy.

Amsterdam, 18th September 1996

            CAMPAIGN FREE DITA SARI AND ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS!


BACKGROUND INFORMATIONS:

                       LABOUR PROTESTS FACE CHARGES

The labours strike on 8 & 9 July 1996 from 20.000 factory labours of
ten(10) factories, Tandes Industrial Estate in Indonesia's second biggest
city, Surabaya, East Java, were demanding a daily wage be increased from
the current $ 2,26- per-day (Rp5.200,-) to $ 3,- per-day (Rp7.00,-),
political rights and the abolish of the Armed Forces dual military and
social role.
The protest was lead by the Indonesian Centre for Labour Struggles
(PusatPerjuangan Buruh Indonesia - PPBI) and the Peoples Democratic Party
(Partai Rakyat Demokratik - PRD).  PPBI is an organisation affiliated to
PRD.

Before the labours could move off on their protest march in peacefully, the
demonstrators was attacked in cold blood by military, police and marines
with rattan stick, iron stick enz.  Hundreds of labours and supporting
students were injured as the military forcibly dispersed them e.g. head
bloodstained, broken ribs and bruised. Five (5) of them have to be cared in
the hospital.
Scores 24 PRD's activists were detained at the Regional Police Office
(Markas Polisi Kota Besar Surabaya - Mapoltabes). Those 24 activists were
forced by military when they were to sign the process verbal (Berita Acara
Pemeriksaan-BAP) that was to be without assistence of the advocate. During
this moment military to intimate and beaten to those activists.  The
military refused the advocate to see them.  The next day of their protest
march (9 July 1996), on about 18:45 the 22 activists of 24 activists were
released but on that day where more protest were organised and more
clashes, the military arrested 12 PRD's activists. And then again almost 70
labours and supporting students were injured.

At that day in Surabaya, Chief of the Brawijaya local military command,
Maj.Gend. Imam Utomo, was announced that Dita Indah Sari (PPBI - The
Indonesian Centre for Labour Struggles) and Coen Husein Pontoh (STN -
National Peasants Union) were detained and threatened to bring the
activists to court on charges of subversion because it is a subversion
demonstration, which carries a maximum penalty of death (stated in the Java
Post news paper, 11th June 1996). He said that the students had politicized
the labour strike and meant to use labourers to achive their political
agenda.  "The labour industrial action was no longer 'original' because
they were edulterated by people wanting to overhaul the whole political
system", he said.


THE MILITARY ANNOUNCED 'SHOT ON SITE' and STARTED ARRESTING THE ACTIVISTS

The Chief of the Social and Politic  Military Forces (Kasospol ABRI),
Syarwan Hamid, announced on 31th July 1996 that it has given orders for
demonstrator be 'shot on site' according to dissident PDI Suryadi's
supporters and the military forces including of the weaponary to take over
the Megawati PDI (Indonesian Democracy Party) headquarter and her
supporters on 27th July 1996. The military has also singled out the Peoples
Democratic Party (PRD) accusing them of using 'communist style' tactics,
such as organising labours and students in mass actions. The military has
been attacked the PRD (Peoples Democratic Party) as attempting to revive
communism and socialism in Indonesia and of using the PDI issue for its
'own purposes. 'The PRD (Peoples Democratic Party) and its
mass-organisations: SMID, PPBI, STN JAKER and SRJ is currently a hundted
people in Indonesia and almost of the headquarters in Jakarta (PRD), Bogor
(PPBI), Surabaya (PRD), Semarang (SMID) has been attacked.

On 31st July 1996 stated in the PRD statement issued that the PRD, as a
defender of the peoples soverignty, as a party of the oppressed, will
continue to struggle with all it strength, ability, force and stamina to
continue the struggle for social justice, peace and democracy.  Democracy
is the bridge that can lead to a more civised society, reflecting the
peoples aspirations.

Democratik - The Peoples Democratic Party)  on 9th July 1996, Dita Sari

unhealty, with bruises on their heads.  They were heavily guarded and were
barred from talking to journalists also to the advocate.
They are now confined in special detention cells (isolation cell), and no
visits to them by relatives, friends and lawyers were permitted.  This is
clearly at variance with the rights of detainees to be visited and receive
assistance from a lawyer in the process prior to the trial. It is possible
that they are no longer detained at the detention cells of the police
municipal headquaters and have been moved to the Bakorstanasda, a military
