A number of DPR members expressed their condolences for TNI personnel who died in armed contact with the Armed Criminal Group (KKB) in Papua. The KKB terror is considered to have increasingly troubled the community. DPR member from the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) faction, Mardani Ali Sera, said that the existence of the KKB must be dealt with firmly. He also hoped that the TNI and Polri would be solid in facing the KKB. “Also grieving the OPM (KKB) continues to carry out terror against our citizens and officers. Apart from kidnapping them to kill. Hopefully our TNI and Polri can take firm action against the OPM,” quoted from the Twitter account @MardaniAliSera, Saturday (23/1/2021 ).
Fadli Zon, a member of the DPR from the Gerindra Party faction, expressed concern over the existence of the KKB. The KKB movement is considered to be increasingly dangerous to the community and apparatus. “Condolences the death of TNI soldiers. Hopefully you will be accepted in the best place with Allah SWT. The separatist movement in Papua is getting more and more dangerous,” he was quoted as saying from the Twitter account @fadlizon. Previously armed contact between TNI personnel and KKB took place in Intan Jaya Regency, Thursday (22/1/2021). In that attack, two TNI soldiers from Yonif R 400 / BR were killed.
