JAKARTADAILY.ID – The Indonesian Human Rights Commission (Komnas HAM) released a report on the results of an investigation related to the Kanjuruhan Stadium Tragedy which killed hundreds of people. The report stated that there were seven human rights violations.

"(First) the use of tear gas in the process of securing matches in the stadium is a form of excessive use of force," Komnas HAM Commissioner Choirul Anam told reporters on Wednesday, November 2, 2022.

The second violation of human rights said Annam was 45 shots of tear gas at the fans. This shot was the main trigger that lead to the deaths of hundreds of people inside the stadium.

"(The third violation) is the right to obtain justice. Currently, the law enforcement process does not cover all parties who should be responsible for the implementation of matches and competitions," he said.

Anam said that the fourth violation of human rights is the right to life. The deaths of 135 people in the Kanjuruhan Tragedy are a violation of the right to life.

"(Fifth) right to health. Many people were suddenly injured by the tear gas, whose eyes were red, their legs were broken, shortness of breath, trauma, and so on," he explained.

According to Anam, the sixth violation is children's rights.  Many of the Kanjuruhan Tragedy victims are children. At least 38 children died as of October 11, 2022.

"(The seventh violation) is a violation of business and human rights. So a business entity that ignores human rights. So he emphasizes business aspects more than human rights aspects," he said.
