Seorang lagi yang terbujuk janji palsu Herman Wainggai Siti Wainggai, warga asal Papua, telah tiba kembali ke Indonesia setelah berada di Vanuatu selama hampir tiga tahun. Ia ditelantarkan oleh Herman Wainggai di Vanuatu dan terdampar di sana. Siti Wainggai adalah isteri dari Yunus Wainggai, pria asal Papua yang merupakan bagian dari kelompok pencari suaka ke Australia dan telah terlebih dahulu kembali ke Indonesia bersama putrinya, Anike Wainggai, pada 29 Nopember 2008. Siti Wainggai mengatakan kepulangannya merupakan inisiatif pribadi. Pernyataan tersebut diperkuat oleh suaminya, Yunus Wainggai, melalui surat yang disampaikan kepada Pemerintah Indonesia. Juru Bicara Departemen Luar Negeri Teuku Faizasyah mengemukakan “Pemerintah Indonesia telah menanggapi secara positif permintaan Siti Wainggai untuk berkumpul kembali bersama suami dan putrinya. Pemerintah melalui koordinasi dengan Pemerintah Vanuatu, telah memfasilitasi kepulangan yang bersangkutan ke tanah air,” ujarnya di Jakarta pada 16 Desember 2008. Ditambahkannya bahwa kepulangan Siti Wainggai telah menunjukkan bahwa telah terdapat tipu daya dan janji-janji yang tidak dipenuhi oleh Herman Wainggai dan kelompoknya.

In this case, the government of the Republic of Indonesia and Australia should protect the safety of both people. Anybody has right to choose their life. Based on Papuan perception, both Gobay and Yubel inspire everyone with confidence.

The issue on refugees who fled to Australia to go back to Indonesia has arisen not long after a group of 43 Papuans arrived at Cape Town on January 13, 2006.  It is known that Herman Wainggai, group’s leader, has ever denied claim that they want to return. “They want to go back is simply wrong,” Herman said.  In fact, they really want to go back to Indonesia. Let us see what Hana Gobey and Yubel Kareni did.

 

Hana Gobey who claimed to pay Rp. 7 Million to Herman Wanggai got a rumors were circulated by Herman that they would be jailed and killed once they arrived in Indonesia.  However, both guys believed the rumors are untrue.   With any efforts, Hana Gobey from Merauke and Yubel Kareni from Serui gained access to Indonesia Consulate General in Melbourne. Their willing to go home was expressed to Jahar Gultom, the consul for economic affairs.

 

Then, with the help of Australian and Indonesia government, both arrive at Mopah Airport in Merauke on a flight from Bali. “The promises Herman W.  made to us will never come true,” said Hana at Frans Kaisepo, Biak on 24 September 2008. Hana was greeted with tears and hugs by her mother Bastina Gobay. “God has answered prayers and now we are reunited after three years apart, ” a tearful Bastina said. Meanwhile, Yubel Kareni said,” I thank the Indonesia Government who had helped me to return home.
