Independence activists’ communications reportedly monitored

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Feb. 1, 2016) – Indonesia's state intelligence agency is reportedly spying on West Papua activists in Australia.

Australian media reported that the Indonesian government was using a decoy server in Sydney to house information gathered through intelligence operations.

The ABC reported that one Indonesian intelligence report from last year listed a number of West Papuan human rights or independence activists who were monitored, and their personal weaknesses noted.

Among these individuals are students and church leaders.

The report's purported aim was to suppress and divide the movement.
