Komnas HAM, in collaboration with the Mobile Corps Brigade of Indonesia (Brimob) launched a Human Rights Pocket book to further strengthen protection of human rights in Indonesia.
The contents of the book were compilations of the training and discussions that were previously held by Komnas HAM and Brimob. The launch was part of the Human Rights Day celebrations held at the office of Komnas HAM on Tuesday (11/12).
The pocket book serves as the guide for human rights based policing.
"As an elite police force, Brimob needs to be equipped with strong fundamental human rights insight and knowledge so that officers will be able to determine acts which violate human rights," said Beka Ulung Hapsara, Commissioner of Komnas HAM.
The pocket book will later be disseminated and become training material for the Brimob education center and other Brimob units in the area.
The handbook was handed over by the Deputy Chairperson of Komnas HAM, Hairansyah, to the National Police Chief, representing, Kadivkum Pol, as a symbolic gesture of collaboration and commitment.
The list of guests who attended the event included United Nations Resident Coordinator Anita Nirody, Chairperson of Komnas HAM, Ahmad Taufan Damanik, USAID Program Specialist, Dondy Satya, and several embassy representatives. (MDH/Jeff)
