Recruitment for Positions

Closing date: 7 April 2019

National human rights institutions (NHRIs) are official, independent State institutions established by law to promote and protect human rights. Some NHRIs are established under the constitution of their country. Others are established by an act of legislature (the parliament). They have broad mandates for the promotion and protection of human rights. The establishing laws give the institutions certain functions and should provide them with the powers necessary to perform those functions. In all cases NHRIs have functions of researching, advising and educating on human rights and to seek to resolve complaints of violation.

The ratification of Convention against Torture (Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment of Punishment) through Law No. 5 of 1998 is expected to continue to reduce the number of complaints about cases of torture. This amount is and addition to the cases of arrest and/or detention not in accordance with acceptable procedures and arrest and/or detention with violence. The cases indicate a continuation of a culture that has been prevalent in the Police environment. This then raises the question of the legality of the arrest itself. Notices of arrest or detention are often not made immediately. It is possible that the detainee’s family might go days without notice after family member suddenly disappears. It is worth nothing that upon close examination, the mode of arrest without warrant it substantially related to the practice of enforced disappearances. In relation with prevention of torture, Komnas HAM has joint collaboration with the Women’s Commission, the Indonesian Child Protection Commission, the Ombudsman and Witness and Victim Protection Agency to deal with the issue of elimination of torture in government detention centers under National Preventive Mechanism for the Prevention of Torture in Indonesia. The initiatives aims to improve understanding of and commitment of key government agencies and security sectors to accountability for and prevention of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, through a National Preventive Mechanism (NPM).
