But who and what is the motive of Polycarpus for killing Munir in such a sadistic way? Isn't it true that the Fact Finding Team formed by President Yudhoyono found many evidences that linked Deputy V on Mobilization and Propaganda of the notorious State Intelligent Body (BIN) with the murder?
This is the irony if not tragedy of Indonesia, the third largest democracy, and the largest Moslem country as the westerns like to name my country.
Let alone those who killed Munir, a single person, a prominent, consistent, dedicated and courageous human rights and democracy defender. Even those who killed hundreds thousands if not millions of people in 1965-1966, and thousands others in Aceh, Papua, Timor and other parts of Indonesia were never brought to justice.
I meet many people from different countries, frequently. Many of them do not agree with the way the western officials see and praise Indonesian democracy and human rights situation. And when some of them do so, I feel so embarrassed and it turn my face red.
"In Indonesia, poisoning prominent human rights activists like Munir is not a crime" (http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/news/questions-remain-on-munir-8-years-on/542865)
In my country, Indonesia, there have been so many cases of gross human rights violation, which are serious crimes under international law, no single responsible person had been held accountable. There are so many cases with hundreds thousands if not millions of victims, but there is no perpetrator. So who actually committed the crimes?
