The process to bring peace in Poso, Central Sulawesi, continues with the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) and the Medical Emergency Rescue Committee (Mer-C) now working in the conflict-ridden province that saw a years-long manhunt for a terrorist group.
The two organizations are working to facilitate the surrendering of the 14 remaining members of the Eastern Indonesia Mujahidin (MIT) terrorist group to security forces.
To achieve this, Nur Kholis of Komnas HAM had met and talked with the Operation Tinombala task force head, National Police Brig. Gen. Rudy Sufahriadi, as well as Army Col. M. Saleh Mustafa and the Central Sulawesi governor on Thursday.
During the meeting with Governor Longki Djanggola, Nur Kholis said Komnas HAM had built communications with the families of MIT members in Tamanjeka hamlet and other areas to build trust.
