The Civil Alliance for Democratic Justice holds a rally on Sunday (15/9/2019) at the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle in Central Jakarta, calling on the people to reject the Criminal Code Bill (RKUHP), which it says contains problematic articles that threaten democracy.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS —  The amended articles in the Criminal Code Bill (RKUHP), which the House of Representatives (DPR) expects to approve during a plenary meeting on 24 Sept. 2019 – the final day of the legislative session – could threaten civil liberties. Several articles in the RKUHP that have been deemed problematic could have negative implications for civil society.

The “rubber” articles in the bill include the accommodation of living law, insulting the president, vice president, the government and state institutions, obstruction and contempt of court and public decency.
