The Law Society is deeply concerned for Mr Gustaf Kawer, a human rights lawyer in Papua, who we understand is being investigated for and has received several summons in relation to crimes committed under Articles 211 and 212 of the Indonesian Criminal Code. We understand that these provisions of the Criminal Code relate to the use of violence, threats of violence, or coercion against public officials in performing their public duties and the relevant offences carry a maximum of four years imprisonment.
