14/12/2010

The 14 star West Melanesian flag was raised in Manokwari. Police arrested eight people, seven of whom were detained. After a trial regarded as unfair three of the defendants were found guilty of treason and given sentences between seven months and two years. The other four were acquitted, even though they had already spent around eight months in jail.
