3. Police Nab Man in West Nusa Tenggara for Insulting the National Police and Parliament

Individuals throughout Indonesia continued to run afoul of the country’s Electronic Transaction and Information Law, as police in West Nusa Tenggara sought out a 23-year old man for insulting Indonesian institutions on Facebook.

Police spokesman Inspector First Class Adhar confirmed that the individual, who is identified as SN, is in police custody after he turned himself in after he briefly went on the run.

“SN admitted that his Facebook posting insulted and incited hatred against the Indonesian National Police and Parliament,” Adhar said of the Bima regency resident on 31 October.

“Investigators focused on SN after the posting, which was uploaded to a Facebook account under the name of Syarif Mathelle. The post included insults towards Parliament for its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and ratification of the Jobs Creation Omnibus Law.”

Adhar added that the police are currently questioning SN to determine his motives. If found guilty he faces 6 years in jail. The Electronic Transaction Law is frequently used by powerful individuals or groups to muzzle dissent.
