A Spanish tourist arrested by Indonesian police for attending a Free West Papua rally in June is still coping with the release of his private details by police to the press.

Thousands of people in West Papua held rallies across the country and in several Indonesian cities in June to call for self-determination and for West Papua's full membership of the Melanesian Spearhead Group.

Twenty-eight year old Andreu Arino says he was visiting West Papua and went to watch a rally which took place near where he was staying in Jayapura.

He shared his experience with Indira Stewart.
