AFAD STATEMENT
11 February 2013
AFAD condemns the disappearance and arbitrary arrest and detention of Wildan Saputra
For nine days, the Saputra family searched for their son Wildan Saputra who was disappeared byunknown men.According to witnesses, Wildan Saputra was forcibly taken by four unidentified men in plainclothes in a front of a store in Wedana Alley, Maphar Sub-district Taman Sari, West Jakarta on18 December 2012. He was searched by unidentified men and was taken to a brown Kijang car  parked in front of a K-24 drugstore.After hearing the incident, Saputra’s family immediately searched for him in various policestations starting from the Jati Baru Police Station (Gambir Police Sector) but the police deniedarresting and detaining Saputra.He was found detained at the Tanah Abang Police Sector in Central Jakarta on 27 December after a witness connected the family to a member of the Rush Assault team (Buser) which in turnconfirmed that Saputra was arrested for narcotics use.While there was no evidence of physical torture, Saputra disclosed that he was severelythreatened to be shot and was forced to admit the use of narcotics. He remains under detention. No arrest warrant was issued when Saputra was apprehended by the police.The Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD) condemns the enforceddisappearance, arbitrary arrest, detention and psychological torture and intimidation committedagainst Wildan Saputra.As a signatory of the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from EnforcedDisappearances (ICPAPED), the Indonesian government must adhere to the principles espousedin the Convention which specifically recognizes that no person shall be subjected to enforceddisappearances under any circumstances.Further protection against enforced disappearance is reflected in the Indonesian Law No.39/1999 states the Human Rights article 33 paragraph 2 that, “Every person has the right to befree from enforced disappearances and taken life by force.”The Indonesian government must remain sincere in its efforts to stop enforced disappearancesand to prevent possible cases from occurring by being steadfast in its domestic and internationalobligations. The case of Wildan Saputra is an indication of clear lapses in the implementation of
