Sarwo Edhie is NEVER a Hero!

(In Indonesian & English)

Sarwo Edhie adalah komandan RPKAD dari 1965-67. Beberapa laporan telah menjabarkan bahwa Sarwo Edhie telah mendalangi pembunuhan jutaan pendukung Sukarno, yang dianggap sebagai simpatisan komunis.

 Tahun lalu, petisi saya untuk menuntut agar Sarwo Edhie tidak dinobatkan sebagai Pahlawan telah berhasil. Sarwo Edhie gagal menjadi Pahlawan pada tahun 2014. Tapi, tahun ini, Menteri Khofifah menyatakan bahwa Sarwo Edhie akan segera dinobatkan sebagai Pahlawan. Menobatkan Sarwo Edhie sebagai pahlawan nasional setelah dibatalkan pada tahun 2014, tidak saja menyatakan betapa tidak konsistennya pemerintah kita, namun juga akan menambah tumpukan ketidakadilan terhadap korban ’65 dan keluarga mereka, serta pengkhianatan terhadap HAM. 

---------------------------- 

Sarwo Edhie was the commander of the Army’s Para-Commando Regiment (RPKAD) from 1965-67. Several reports have alleged that he orchestrated and presided over the murder of millions of supporters of Sukarno, who were accused of being communist sympathisers. 

Last year, I wrote a petition demanding that Sarwo Edhie not be make a Hero. This petition has been successful: Sarwo was not anointed as Hero in 2014. However, as reported in The Jakarta Post on 25 April 2015, Social Affairs Minister Khofifah Indar Parawansa confirmed that Sarwo Edhie Wibowo would soon be declared national heroes this year. Making Sarwo Edhie a national Hero this year, after the cancellation last year, will not only demonstrate the inconsistency of the government but also an act of great betrayal for the victims of 1965 and their families, as well as for the human rights in general.
