Press Release 7 Juli, 2004

Pada hari Kamis, tanggal 1 Juli, aparat polisi Pemerintah Kolonial Indonesia menangkap Tgk. M. Johan, dengan tuduhan sebagai bupati GAM di Acheh Rayeuk. Selain beliau disiksa sangat berat, istri beliau dan seluruh keluarganya juga mendapat ancaman dan intimidasi dari polisi penjajah tersebut. Semasa dalam tahanan, anak dan istri beliau pun tidak henti-henti diancam.

Hari ini, Rabu 7 Juli, pukul 01.00 tadi pagi, beliau meninggal dunia karena disiksa sangat berat. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Raajiun.

Setelah diminta berkali-kali oleh keluarga, akhirnya jenazah diperbolehkan untuk dibawa pulang, dengan dibekali ancaman penculikan dan penyanderaan terhadap keluarga almarhum sekiranya mereka melaporkan apa yang terjadi.

Sesungguhnyalah, selama dijajah oleh Negara Kolonial Republik Indonesia (NKRI), tidak ada seharipun rakyat Acheh mengalami ketenangan dan kedamaian. Pembunuhan sewenang-wenang, pemerkosaan, intimidasi dan perampokan telah menjadi alat penjajah untuk menundukkan rakyat Acheh. Demikian juga ribuan bangsa Acheh dengan sangat zalim telah ditahan, tanpa proses hukum yang sesuai dengan norma-norma antarabangsa, mereka mendapat hukuman belasan tahun, dan diasingkan ke luar pulau Jawa, sebagaimana dulu dilakukan oleh penjajah Belanda. Sememangnyalah NKRI itu adalah negara kolonial penerus Hindia Belanda (Dutch Colonial Successor State).

Demikian juga tahanan GAM yang telah dilepas di Acheh Timur dengan perantaraan ICRC baru-baru ini, sampai sekarang masih disandera TNI/Polri, banyak diantara mereka yang diseret kepengadilan pura-pura dan mendapat hukuman penjara bertahun-tahun. Sungguh aneh dan sangat biadab, TNI/Polri menjadikan para tahanan itu sebagai tersangka. Lebih-lebih lagi menyedihkan bila ICRC berlepas tangan dengan alasan mereka hanya menjadi penengah waktu pelepasan tahan tersebut dan tidak bertanggungjawab akan apa yang terjadi setelah itu.

Hukum rimba sangat biadab model begini bukan tidak diketahui dunia. Bahkan, Amnesty Internasional, dalam pernyataannya tanggal 11 Mei lalu mengatakan: "Bahwa adanya kesaksian dari beberapa korban yang disiksa sangat berat oleh TNI maupun Polri. Metoda siksaan terhadap korban meliputi pemukulan, pembakaran (bagian tubuh) dengan puntung rokok, pembungkusan kepala korban dengan karung plastik, demikian pula ada para korban yang mendapat perlakuan keji, serta dikenakan arus listrik voltage tinggi.

Tentara Negara Acheh mengutuk dengan sekeras-kerasnya tindakan biadab TNI/Polri yang telah menjalankan berbagai kelakuan primitif dan kejahatan kemanusiaan di Acheh. Tindakan terrorisme TNI/Polri ini, tidak akan dibiarkan begitu saja. Setiap titis darah bangsa Acheh yang ditumpahkan, akan ada balasannya.

Press Release July 7, 2004

ACCUSED AS GAM DISTRICT CHIEF, M.JOHAN WAS TORTURED TO DEATH IN DETENTION

On Thursday July 1, The Indonesian Colonial State (NKRI) police force in Acheh arrested Tgk. M. Johan, accused as Greater Acheh District Chief of the Free Acheh Movement (GAM). While in detention he was severely tortured, all members of his family, including his wife were intimidated.

Early this morning at 1.00 am he was found death in his cell with heavy torture marks all over his body. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Raajiun (From Allah we came and to Allah we return).

After repeated pleading by his family, his body was allowed to be released for burial; the family was intimidated not to tell anyone about the torture.

Indeed, since the beginning of the colonial takeover of Acheh by the Indonesian Colonial State (NKRI), there is hardly a day when the people of Acheh being left alone in peace and calm. Arbitrary killing, rape, intimidation and robbery have become the colonial administration weapons to subdue the Achehnese. Thousands of Achehnese have been detained without any due process of the law that is in accordance with international norms; they have been meted with very heavy jail sentences, some lasting dozens of years, and hundreds have been exiled to jails in Java, as had done the Dutch colonial government during its war with Acheh. Indeed, NKRI is nothing but a Dutch Colonial Successor State.

Meanwhile, the GAM detainees released recently in Acheh Timur with the ICRC as the intermediary, are still being detained by the TNI/Polri; many among them have been brought before a farcical court and sentenced to years of imprisonment. This matter is such a strange and uncivilized development of the case, whereby the TNI/Polri, after claiming that GAM detained them as hostages are now detaining them as alleged GAM sympathisers. Even more saddening is the fact that the ICRC is washing its hands off the case, claiming its responsibility was limited to being the intermediary to have these unfortunate people released by GAM and is not responsible for what happens after that.

Such uncivilized jungle law being practiced by Indonesia is not unknown to the international community. In fact, the Amnesty Internasional, in its report dated May 11 2004 stated that: "there are witnesses about a number of victims being tortured heavily by the Indonesian military and police (TNI/Polri). The torture methods employed include beating, burning parts of the body with cigarette butts, placing a plastic bag over the head, and also subjecting the victims to severe humiliation and to high-voltage electric shocks.

The Acheh National Armed Forces (TNA) condemns in the strongest terms all these primitive and criminal acts of the Indonesian military/police (TNI/Polri) in Acheh. The TNA will not leave all these acts of terrorism by the TNI/Polri without any consequence. Every drop of Achehnese blood by the TNI/Polri will be avenged!.
