The Essence of Human Rights Violations in Social Conflict in Maluku (After The Riots In 1999)

Juanrico Alfaromona Sumaresz Titahelu


The social conflict that occurred in 1999 in Maluku was a process of destroying society and culture in Maluku carried out systematically, using methods that were very difficult to trace and prove. As a result, the destruction of the Moluccan community with the Pela Gandong tradition was destroyed. On the other hand, this condition is exacerbated by the presence of security forces who tend to let this condition continue. This condition eventually gave birth to the reality of the fragility of a cultural order that has long been grown and maintained into a fragmented atmosphere of Maluku society where the Christian community in Maluku is no longer familiar with the Islamic community from the same Maluku community and vice versa The solution to the problem shows that the application of international law in handling human rights violations does not reach acts that appear to be acts of violence that violate human rights such as crimes against humanity. The essence of acts of violence which undermine the degree of humanity not only comes from the authorities, but also in the case of individual or group acts of violence that cannot be limited by the authorities.
