Plan to set up West Papua office here

West Papua independence leaders plan to open an office in Honiara.

Their leader Jacob Rumbiak arrived in Honiara on Friday to further discuss the intention with local supporters.

A member of the Solomon Islands Solidarity Group for West Papua Lily Chekana told the Sunday Star an office space was already allocated for West Papua.

She said the office was located inside the headquarters of Guadalcanal Province at Kukum, east Honiara.

Chekana also added a plot of land in Honiara had been set aside for the West Papua office.

Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has been a staunch supporter of the West Papua independence cause.

As chair of the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG), he ensured West Papua was accorded observer status at the MSG summit held in Honiara last year.

West Papuan leaders were welcomed by their local supporters on arrival at Henderson Airport on Friday.
