A delegation of politicians from the Papua region has called on the Indonesian President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, to appoint a special envoy to improve Papua’s international image.

The chief councillor from West Papua, Jimmy Demianus Ijie, who led the delegation, has told the Jakarta Post that a special envoy is needed to counter the campaign that gives an impression human rights abuses continue in Papua.

He claimed the campaign against Papua was related to Indonesia’s efforts to bar the American Samoan member of the US Congress, Faleomavaega Eni Hunkin, from viciting Papua in July last year, and the failure of special autonomy in the region.
