Profile of the Disappeared: Petrus Bimo Anugerah (BIMPET)
At the far right is Petrus Bima Anugerah, last seen in the end of March 1998. He is one of 23 victims of disappearances in 1997-1998 when Indonesia was in economic and political crisis. Data of IKOHI indicates that the Special Armed Forces (Kopassus) commanded by Major General Prabowo Subianto (who is now contesting for 2009 Presidential Election) is believed to be the perpetrator.
Bimpet, as he is best known by his co activists was a bright and brave student leader. The picture was taken when he was chairing one of the sessions of the Congress of the People's Democratic Party (PRD) in 2006 in kaliurang, Jogjakarta.
Bimpet was also a musician. He arranged popular songs portraying social injustices. He also formed a band group called Lontar, that is still existed until today.
We are calling for support from public to have the Parliament follow up the recommendation of the Komnas HAM, urging President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to set up Ad Hoc Human Rights Court for the case of disappearances in 1997 - 1998.
Bimpet, your memory will always be with the people!
