Narius Wenda (28) was arrested on 15 October 2019 for murder. His brother Naligi Wenda was killed during the riot on 23 September. On 12 October, his illness relapsed when he was carrying a knife that he just sharpened for a traditional cooking feast event, ‘bakar batu’, in honour of his brother. He accidentally stabbed a person on a motorbike who was passing his house and the victim later died in hospital. Prosecutors sought twelve years’ imprisonment. The District Court found him guilty of Article 340 of the Criminal Code on premeditated murder and sentenced him to ten years in jail on 14 May 2020. He appealed the ruling and the Court of Appeal in Jayapura upheld the verdict on 20 July 2020. He submitted a cassation to the Supreme Court on 4 August 2020 and is awaiting the result.
