Faleomavaega speaks up on Papua again

US Congressman and American Samoan Faleomavaega Eni Hunkin has asked Indonesia to guarantee the safety of Papuans arrested for treason last week.

Papua Congress leaders have been charged with treason after declaring West Papuan independence.

Radio New Zealand International reports that Faleomavaega says the reports of how security forces intervened give evidence of crimes against humanity.
