He is one of the founders of the independent commissionfor Missing Persons and Victims of Violence (KONTRAS), as he passed awayon a Garuda Indonesia Flight to Amsterdam.Born in the East Java town of Malang on Dec. 8, 1965, Munir's small,aggressive demeanor rose to prominence in the late 1990s amid a rash of kidnappings and disappearances during the last years of former presidentSoeharto's rule. His co-founding of the commission for mission personsand victims of Violence (Kontras), not long before the May riots, onApril 21, 1998, challenged the dismissing of acts such as kidnapping,torture and involuntary disappearances as ordinary crimes.People began to talk of "state violence" as Kontras provided legalcounsel for victims, investigated individual cases and made public theresults of its investigations, which often implicated the securityforces. Not long after Kontras was established, Munir and his colleaguesreceived a number of threats, including a bomb threat targetted at hisfamily home in Malang.Munir almost immediately was recognized internationally for his work,and was honored with awards such as the Yap Thiam Hien Human RightsAward and the Right Livelihood Award 2000, or the "alternative Nobel"from the Swedish government.He was involved in various high profile investigations, including theviolence in East Timor both before and after the 1999 referendum. Hereflected later that the national rights body, which set up a team onEast Timor, was much more effective than when it investigated theTanjung Priok case of 1984, even though the national rights body wasbacked by legislation.The father of two and husband of Suciati, a former labor activist, also
became a hero to the Acehnese as his presense in the war-torn provinceemboldened a populace used to fear. But as communal violence spread inIndonesia, Kontras was overwhelmed, and he was critisized for neglectingthousands of victims such those in Maluku.In 2002, Munir cofounded Indonesia Human Rights Watch (Imparsial).Of the truth and reconciliation commission, the bill for which wasfinally endorsed on Tuesday, he once said that prolonged plan to set upthe commission was nothing more than "an excuse for impunity."Source : Jakarta Post, Wednesday September 8, 2004Condolence are expressed on following :Munir SH, a Human Right campaigners, dies on plane. 1Condolence are expressed on following : 1Peduli Indonesia [mailto:concern@indosat.net.id] 2BScC (Biological Science Club) [mailto:bscc@indo.net.id] 2Adie Usman Musa [mailto:aum@indo.net.id] 3KPAI Jakarta [mailto:aulia_kpai@yahoo.com] 3YSBB [mailto:ysbb@telkom.net] 3PPSWppsw@cbn.net.id.4 KPS [mailto:kepesera@medan.wasantara.net.id] 5Kurniawan Adi Nugroho [mailto:wawan373@yahoo.com.sg] 5NGO-Forestry-Sector-Partnership. 6Peduli Indonesia <mailto:%5Bmailto:concern@indosat.net.id%5D>[mailto:concern@indosat.net.id]Sent: Wednesday, September 08, 2004 8:40 AMTo: walhinews@yahoogroups.com; communitygallery@yahoogroups.com;  cumakita@yahoogroups.com;VECO-RISubject: Dunia berduka : Munir telah pergi!Innaalillaahi wainnaailaihirooji'uunSegenap aktivis Peduli Indonesia dan keluarga petani di Mojokerto(Jawa Timur) menyampaikan belasungkawa dan dukacita
