The newly-established Indonesia virtual police unit has issued its warning to 200 social media users who have posted potential criminally offensive content related to ethnicity, religion, and race, police said.

"As many as 329 complaints have been filed, but only 200 of them are verified [allegedly contain hate speech]," said Director of Cyber Crime at the National Police Criminal Investigation Agency Brigadier General Slamet Uliandi in Jakarta on Tuesday, April 13.

The contents could be charged under Article 28 of the Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law.

Out of 329 complaints, 38 of which are still being verified, while 91 others were dropped as the cases could not be verified.

Slamet said the social media platform with the most reported content is Twitter followed by Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Whatsapp.

The virtual police officers will reprimand and explain a potential violation of an article of ITE Law, including its punishment, then will explain what needs to be done next.
