“The original spirit of the Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law was to maintain a clean, healthy, ethical and productive cyber space of Indonesia. If its implementation gives rise to a sense of injustice, this law needs a revision. Omit vague articles with multiple interpretations that are apt to be one-sidedly interpreted.”

So was the directive of President Joko Widodo at an Indonesian Military/National Police leadership meeting at the State Palace, Jakarta, on Monday, 15 February 2021. On the same occasion, the President also urged that the police should be more selective in handling cases related to the catchall articles.
