Traditional Leaders: Don\'t Disrupt PON XX
Papuan Indigenous Youth chairman Yan Arebo said the government and all Papuan residents should not be afraid to support the Games because of the recent attacks by KKBs.
JAYAPURA, KOMPAS — A number of traditional and youth leaders in Papua have called on all parties in the region to create a safe and conducive atmosphere ahead of the 20th National Games (PON XX), which is set to be held in the province early next month. The success of the national sports event was important to the pride of Papua, they said.
Herman Yoku, a Papuan traditional leader in Jayapura, said that any efforts with the potential to disrupt the national sports competition should be prevented, especially any actions related to the frequent and recent violence carried out by armed criminal groups (KKBs) in the province.
