The Provincial Government (Pemprov) of Papua will resolve any problems related to the customary rights of citizens in accordance with the applicable rules and regulations.
The head of the Papua Province Manpower Office, Yan Piet Rawar, in Jayapura, said Saturday that he would sit with the indigenous people as the owners of customary rights to resolve these problems and accommodate proposals to be forwarded to the governor and regional secretary.
“The problem regarding customary rights in principle will soon be resolved according to existing regulations so as not to interfere with the performance of the relevant agencies,” he said.
According to Yan Piet, office blocking due to problems with customary rights is a natural thing, but must be resolved immediately so that it does not interfere with community activities and government work in providing public services.
“For assets belonging to the government, there must be evidence, so if claimed by other parties it must show official documents and documents,” he said.
Previously, one of the indigenous groups demanded compensation for land and communal rights of the UPTD Office of the Manpower Supervision Office in Sentani, Jayapura Regency.
The UPTD Office of the Manpower Supervision Office which is an asset of the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration has been submitted to the Papua Provincial Government in 2001.
Now the UPTD office of the Labor Inspection Center has become an asset of the provincial government and is used by the Manpower Office.
