Aceh conflict monitoring update (August 2007) (Indonesian-Malay)

This conflict monitoring update for August 2007 focuses on tensions from the conflict era that manifested most strikingly in a series of incidents related to the theft or disappearance of Independence Day national flags. Violence continued at the high level which has been recorded since March of this year, once again reaching its highest post-Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) level of 24 incidents. Many of these were related to the ongoing post-election conflict in Aceh Tenggara (see previous Updates), which this month escalated with a series of arson and grenade attacks. This Update also discusses a new development in the Bumi Flora land case, where NGO staffs assisting villagers to assert their land claims were charged under draconian "incitement" laws. The outcome of these legal proceedings might set a precedent with regards to the limits of democratic expression in Aceh.
