Revealing corruption at the Indonesian Electoral Commission.

An auditor at the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) in Indonesia who revealed widespread corruption in the procurement activities of the General Election Commission and then exposed the bribery of the Commission’s members. This act angered the head of the BPK and Mr Salman was accused of violating the code of conduct. He was then openly accused in the media of entrapping the Commission member to bribe him. He has enabled the Commission to uncover a US$2.1 million scandal which involved virtually all of its members.

Keeping accountability alive under Suharto.

Mohamad has been a crusader for press freedom in Indonesia since his university days. In 1967, just a couple of years after Suharto engineered the overthrow of Indonesia’s founding president Sukarno, he set up the short-lived independent student newspaper Harian Kami. It took advantage of the brief freedom offered by the nascent Suharto regime, but it was banned by the government in 1974. By that time, however, Mohamad had become editor of Tempo, an independent weekly magazine he founded in 1971. It sought to keep the Suharto government accountable to the public, and set new journalistic standards for the country with a mix of political commentary and investigative reporting on human rights and official corruption. Tempo was frequently threatened with closure, and was banned for a short time in 1982 when it reported on violence instigated by the government-backed Golkar Party at an opposition campaign rally. In 1994, the magazine went too far for the regime when a cover story criticizing Indonesia’s purchase of 39 used navy ships from the former East Germany drew attention to a dispute between B. J. Habibie, the author of the deal and then a powerful cabinet minister, and a number of senior generals. Suharto was reportedly enraged with the airing of his regime’s dirty linen in print. Tempo was banned and its publication license revoked in June 1994, along with the licenses of two other popular news magazines.

Shedding light on human rights violations in West Papua.

Warinussy has been a dedicated human rights activist for more than fifteen years in West Papua, a territory under Indonesia’s military control since 1963. Lawyer and Director of the Institute for Research, Analysing, and Development of Legal Aid, he has committed himself to shedding light on gross human rights violations in West Papua and defending people whose rights are ignored, despite repeated intimidation and threats to his personal safety. Mr. Warinussy is also a respected community leader, a role he has earned in part through his efforts to provide legal representation to those in West Papua’s remote regions who would otherwise have none. For instance, Mr. Warinussy played a key role in the defence of Papuan’s rights affected by a British Petroleum natural gas facility in Bintuni Bay. His untiring efforts for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in West Papua have made him a role-model for members of the community and future generations. Confronted with summary executions, cases of torture, of sexual violence and massive appropriation of indigenous land by Indonesia’s armed forces and multinational companies, Mr. Warrinussy works tirelessly towards ending impunity.

Apa yang membuat redaktur wikileaks merasa perlu menyajikan 1 halaman khusus bagi ketiga orang ini? Menurutku, dedikasi, perjuangan dan integritas terhadap apa yang mereka tekuni di dunia masing masing,

#secara khusus GM juga menyambut WL dengan senang di Twitternya, katanya:

Saya menyambut Wikileaks dan senang melihat kekuasaan2 besar kelabakan. Tapi bocoran yg deras bisa terkena “law of diminishing return”.
