Jantho, (Analisa). Pendidikan hak asasi manusia (HAM) bagi anggota Polri dapat memberi kekuatan baru bagi profesi ini karena persoalan HAM selalu menjadi perhatian internasional sehingga polisi harus bisa menciptakan dan memberikan perdamaian berbasis HAM di tengah masyarakat.

Demikian disampaikan Kepala Pusat Studi HAM Universitas Negeri Medan (Unimed), Majda El Muhtaj, saat memberikan materi HAM dalam “Pembekalan Siswa Pendidikan Pembentukan (Diktuk) Brigadir Polri 2015” di Sekolah Kepolisian Negara (SPN) Seulawah Polda Aceh, Kamis, (25/2).

“Polisi tidak semata-mata melawan kejahatan, tetapi harus bisa menciptakan dan memberikan perdamaian. Pendidikan HAM akan memberi kekuatan baru bagi polisi. Dengan HAM akan menyelamatkan profesi ini,” katanya.

Harus diakui, tugas polisi merupakan tugas berat karena bersentuhan langsung dengan masyarakat. Polisi harus selalu melayani, melindungi, dan mengayomi masyarakat setiap saat sehingga rentan terhadap terjadinya pelanggaran HAM.

Masyarakat harus tunduk pada hukum. Sehingga kepolisian sebagai bagian dari negara bertanggung jawab menegakkan hukum. Dengan kondisi seperti ini, polisi menjadi lembaga yang independen, dan bisa menciptakan stabilitas dan akuntabilitas.

Langkah Maju

Menurut Majda, upaya SPN Seulawah memberikan pembekalan materi HAM kepada anggota baru Polri merupakan langkah maju. Dia  berharap SPN di daerah lain bisa memasukkan materi HAM dalam pendidikan siswa baru Polri. Pendidikan HAM juga dapat ditindaklanjuti dalam berbagai pelatihan anggota Polri menyangkut materi pidana.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS - Komisi Nasional Hak Asasi Manusia (Komnas HAM) meminta pemerintah segera membuat regulasi tentang pidana penyiksaan.

Ketua Komnas HAM Nur Kholis menilai, Kitab Undang-Undang Hukum Pidana (KUHP) belum secara tegas mengatur tentang penyiksaan, khususnya yang melibatkan otoritas pemerintahan.

"Beda penganiayaan dan torture (penyiksaan). Torture kategorinya melibatkan elemen negara, dan bentuknya lebih kejam, menurunkan harkat dan martabat seseorang," ujar Nur Kholis dalam seminar di Kuningan, Jakarta Selatan, Rabu (24/2/2016).

Menurut Nur Kholis, selama ini penyiksaan di tempat-tempat di mana otiritas pemerintah sangat kuat. Misalnya, di bidang penegakan hukum seperti lembaga pemasyarakatan.

Atau di tempat-tempat lain seperti panti sosial, yang relasi kekuasaan begitu kuat, sementara korban sangat lemah.

Komisioner Komnas HAM Roichatul Aswidah mengatakan, harus ada mekanisme yang memadai untuk memmastikan pelaku  penyiksaan diproses secara hukum.

Menurut Roi, pasal penyiksaan sebenarnya sudah lama ingin dimasukan dalam draf revisi KUHP.

As a nation based on Pancasila including faith in one God, there is no place for sinful sexual deviants. This is the message we have been hearing since a gay counseling service at the University of Indonesia was banned last month.

Panic is spreading about a “movement” that seeks to convert heterosexual youth among those with apparently little exposure to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Such anxiety has always been endorsed by religious figures. But we are now most alarmed by the stigma of LGBT citizens that has been endorsed by ministers and even the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI). After meeting with the Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI), the KPI said it had banned “promotion” of “LGBT lifestyle” and activities from television programs. However, Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan has asserted that LGBT people are citizens with equal rights.

Although President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo campaigned on ensuring “the state’s presence”, the state is increasingly provoking stigma and discrimination against minorities. In January authorities swiftly facilitated the eviction of members of Fajar Nusantara Movement (Gafatar), alleged to be a deviant faith group. Then the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) issued a fatwa proclaiming them as heretic; another edict on LGBT people is also expected.

Official rejection and formal restriction of LGBT activities is a dangerous signal of even wider state embrace of moral and religious-related demands. Hundreds of bylaws regulate behavior and morality, as well as restrict minorities. Church and state is a lethal mix. At this rate we’ll soon be back to burning witches; three Ahmadiyah minority members were killed in Banten in February 2011.

Jokowi’s silence about such divisive issues is increasingly endangering minorities, who are being kicked out of their homes here and there. Such events occurred during the 10 years under then president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, but Jokowi was entrusted to make a difference.

Proponents of curbing LGBT activities or people insist they are all for protecting citizens’ rights and advocate efforts to “guide” LGBT people away from “deviance” — despite grossly lacking evidence about “cured” sexual orientation. Haedar Nashir, leader of Indonesia’s second-largest Islamic organization, Muhammadiyah, has warned that no one should subject LGBT people to violence.

Without strong state defense of minorities, many would nod to the other part of Haedar’s statement — that “human rights are not universal”, but depend on the context of a nation, despite the Constitution’s incorporation of UN human rights conventions.

Masyarakat Lumban Sitorus masih terus memperjuangkan hak atas tanas warisan Jior Sisada-sada dengan luas 36 hekta dan Silosung 6 hektar dari leluhur mereka Op. Guru Datu Sumalanggak Sitorus yang berada di Lumban Sitorus, Kecamatan Parmaksian, Toba Samosir.

Pasalnya, tanah adat kini menjadi lahan berdirinya PT Inti Indorayon Utama (IIU) yang bergantian nama menjadi PT Toba Pulp Lestari (TPL) tidak urung juga melakukan pembayaran ganti rugi yang seharusnya dilakukan sejak 1985, namun pihak IIU hanya melakukan ganti rugi kepada warga empat desa.

Ketua Persatuan Masyarakat Adat Desa Lumban Sitorus, Esran Sitorus, menuturkan,  sejak tahun 1985, masyarakat adat Lumban Sitorus sudah berkali-kali mempertanyakan kejelasan status tanah ini kepada pihak pemerintah, baik pemerintah Taput ketika masih berada dalam wilayah administrasi Tapanuli Utara, hingga saat telah mekar menjadi kabupaten Toba Samosir.

“Namun hingga saat ini kejelasan status dan pengakuan dari pemerintah terhadap tanah adat tersebut belum ada. Sebaliknya pemerintah dan perusahaan mengatakan telah memberikan ganti rugi tanah tersebut kepada masyarakat. Terhadap pernyataan pemerintah dan perusahaan tersebut masyarakat adat Lumban Sitorus dengan tegas mengatakan bahwa sampai saat ini mereka belum pernah mendapatkan ganti rugi apapun atas tanah tersebut.

Karena tak ada kejelasan, masyarakat adat Lumban Sitoru berulang kali melakukan protes terhadap PT TPL bahkan terjadi aksi kriminalisasi terhadap Esran Sitorus dan akhirnya Pengadilan Balige menyatakan vonis bebas terhadap Esran Sitorus.

Masyarakat terus melakukan upayapengembalian lahan dengan melakukan audiensi ke Komisi A DPRD Sumatera Utara, Senin, 15 Februari 2016. “Kami berharap pemerintah (eksekutif dan legislatif) di tingkat kabupaten, propinsi sampai pusat mendengar tuntutan mereka dan pro-aktif menyelesaikan persoalan yang sedang dihadapi”, tambah Esran.

Masyarakat adat Lumban Sitorus berharap agar pemerintah melindungi masyarakat adat serta menghentikan bentuk kriminalisasi yang dilakukan kepada masyarakat adat yang memperjuangankan ha katas tanah adatnya. Serta perlindungan dari aparat keamanan kepada masyarakat bukan alat keamanan untuk perusahaan semata dan bertindak represif kepada warga adat. (YH)
