Some Indonesian and international people certainly know about the shooting incidents that took place in Yigi District, Nduga Regency, Papua Province, Indonesia, on Monday, December 3, 2018. Shooting incident allegedly carried out by the West Papua National Liberation Army led by Egianus Kogoya, the military wing of the Free Papua Organization (OPM) labeled as the Armed Criminal Group responsible for the event. The incident ignited the spirit of the OPM to re-ignite the fire of struggle to part with the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia. But like two sides of a coin, on the one hand, OPM knows that the incident can make them appear to exist both domestically, Southeast Asia, to the corners of the world. To part with the parent country, at least the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States of 1933 must be the main reference, and it will be difficult because the elements in Article 1 alone they (OPM) have been unable to fulfill, the proof is that until now the OPM has not been included in the Non-Self-Governing Territory category in accordance with the rules of the United Nations Charter.
