West Papua: human rights and media freedom

* Alliance of Independent Journalists in Papua * Editor of Tabloid Jubi * Human rights defender

Victor is a leading human rights defender in Indonesian occupied West Papua. He is Editor of the Jayapura-based newspaper and website Tabloid Jubi, Chairperson of West Papua's Alliance of Independent Journalists, and a contributor to Al Jazeera.

Victor is a prominent advocate for freedom of the press and open access for international journalists and UN monitors to Papua.
