Pernyataan Pers/Press Release

12 Juli 2001

Tokoh Masyarakat Ditahan Lagi Untuk Kekerasan Rumah Tangga

 
Pada Tanggal 10 Juli 2001, Dr. Sergio Lobo, bekas ketua Departemen Kesehatan ETTA (East Timor Transitional Authority), ditahan di Dili dituduh menganiaya istrinya dengan cara kekerasan. Penahanan ini mengikuti penahanan pada bulan Februari tahun ini dengan tuduhan yang sama. Pengadilan diharapkan menentukan tanggal sidang untuk kasus pidana terhadap Dr. Lobo dalam bulan Juli ini.
NGO Forum, Jaringan Perempuan Timor Lorosa’e serta Program Pemantauan Sistim Pengadilan yang baru didirikan akan memantau kasus ini dengan seksama. Kelompok ini berupaya agar sistim pengadilan memandang semua kasus kekerasan rumah tangga dengan perhatian serius, sama dan tidak boleh mengistimewakan seorang tertuduh yang berkedudukan tinggi.
“Kasus ini akan dijadikan preseden untuk kasus-kasus kekerasan rumah tangga berikutnya dan untuk semua kasus yang melibatkan pejabat masyarakat tinggi”, kata Filomena Reis, Staf Advokasi di NGO Forum Timor Lorosa’e. “Sistem pengadilan kita harus memperlakukan semua orang dengan cara sama”.
Kelompok-kelompok masyarakat terkejut waktu Dr. Lobo dibebaskan tanpa syarat dari penahanannya pada bulan Februari. Pemantau hukum independen juga heran karena dibebaskannya. “Kasus ini menjadi ujian untuk sistem pengadilan Timor Lorosa’e yang baru”, kata Christian Ranheim, seorang pengacara dari Norwegia dari Program Pemantauan Sistem Pengadilan. “Sementara kami ini memantau proses pra-peradilan, termasuk pembebasan tertuduh. Walaupun hakimyang melaksanakan investigasi mempunyai hak eksklusip mengenai penahanan tertuduh, kelihatannya terjadi pelanggaran hak korban dalam kasus ini.”
Kelompok-kelompok masyarakat sipil dan jaringan perempuan menekankan bahwa masalah kekerasan rumah tangga harus diakui oleh semua orang sebagai masalah serius di Timor Lorosa’e.

Jumlah laporan tindak kekerasan rumah tangga di Timor Lorosa’e sudah meningkat tinggi sejak referendum pada tahun 1999. Tetapi penuntutan kasus-kasus tersebut berjalan sangat lamban. “Banyak orang Timor percaya bahwa kekerasan rumah tangga adalah masalah pribadi dan tidak patut disidangkan di hadapan umum,” kata Laura Abrantes dari Jaringan Perempuan Timor Lorosa’e. “Kejahatan adalah kejahatan, baik dilakukan di jalan atau di rumah.

Pada bulan Februari, Dr. Sergio Lobo, si tertuduh menganiaya istrinya dengan sepotong kayu serta suntikan obat bius pada lengan dengan mempergunakan alat suntik yang dipersiapkan olehnya khusus untuk tujuan penganiayaan ini. Pada Tanggal 9 Juli, tertuduh menganiaya istrinya lagi di Hotel Audian. Korban dalam kasus ini menceritakan riwayat kekerasan fisik dan emosi yang berjalan selama pernikahannya dengan Dr. Lobo selama 15 tahun.

REDE: Feto Timor Lorosae Timorese Women's Network   Updated June 15

  • REDE: Feto Timor Lorosae was established in March 2000 and currently encompasses more than 15 women’s organisations. These organisations are representative in themselves of a broad cross section of society as there are mass based organisations with national membership -  down to the village level, cultural, income generating/small business and rights based organisations and organisations affiliated with political parties.
  • REDE and each of the network’s members have been accompanying the political developments in our country [ETimor]. REDE advocates on a rights based approach to development, justice, social inclusiveness and gender equity and equality. REDE is also participating in and contributing to the reconstruction as well as working directly with Timorese women through amongst others, literacy and income generating and poverty alleviation projects to help them break away from the debilitating ties of illiteracy and poverty.
  • Although there have been achievements, progress is slow. Women’s lives in East Timor, as with the rest of the population continues to be arduous. For women this is more so because of the situation of women in Timorese society, cultural perceptions of women, the absence of clear laws which protect women and women’s limited participation in decision making.

    Jul 12 NGO Forum / Rede Feto: Public Figure Detained Again for Domestic Violence  Release added July 13
    “This case will set a precedent for future cases of domestic violence and for any cases that involve a high-level official, ... Our legal system must treat all people equally.” Filomena Reis, Advocacy Officer, East Timor NGO Forum

    “Many East Timorese still believe that domestic violence is a private issue and is therefore not fit for a public courtroom, ... A crime is a crime, whether committed on the street or in one’s home.” Laura Abrantes, East Timor Women’s Network
    Jun 17 Guterez: Is access to justice still dependent on position in ETimor?  Article and letter added June 22
    "This [domestic violence] case seems to be taking a long time to get to court and ... I feel justice may not be done. With domestic violence being common here and Dr Sergio being a well-known figure the case could be a big move to make it clear that domestic violence is not expectable and illegal. Perhaps it is time for the international community to voice their concern." Jane Guterez
