JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Deputy Chairperson of the Imparsial human rights monitoring agency, Ardi Manto Adi Putra, criticized the attitude of Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI) soldiers who asked for donations to stall entrepreneurs in North Jayapura, Papua, under the pretext of giving them to underprivileged residents during Eid.
According to him, TNI members do not have a legal basis to ask for donations from civilians. He said that the action also deviated from the duties, principal and functions of the TNI.
"The behavior of debt-seeking under the guise of asking for donations by TNI soldiers who are busy lately clearly has no legal basis and is a form of deviation that tarnishes the good name of the TNI institution," said Ardi when contacted by Kompas.com, Sunday (1/5/2022).
