When President Yudhoyono first took office, he promised that his administration would promote human rights and tolerance. Nine years later, the prospects for accountability for past rights violations have receded; religious intolerance has grown. Indonesia's security forces have become increasingly abusive in West Papua. Police and soldiers who violate human rights are rarely held accountable. Serious human rights violations by members of the military are tried in military courts where soldiers, if convicted, receive light sentences.This record makes him unworthy of an award from a foundation which supports religious tolerance and human rights.see more here: demonstration will take place on May 30 in NYC if the award is not withdrawn.
