What Media Says

The Guardian essay (3/4) highlights the idea about prosecuting ecocide crime – other form of environment crime vis-a-vis crime against humanity – that should be liable to international criminal court. Once the Rome Statute Bill listed ecocide as one of serious crimes alongside genocide, war crime and crime against humanity, but industrialist countries taking part in the law making process shot it down in 1996.

While addressing the real leading example of environment crime cases, the author points out a large scale agricultural project located in West Papua so called Merauke Integrated Food and Energy Estate (MIFEE). Again, as frequently done by some mainstream international medias, he also believes that West Papua is being illegally occupied by Indonesia.
