Democracy Unbound: Free Speech in Indonesia’s New Era

This episode was recorded in front of an online live audience as part of our Media Freedom Network Legal Briefing activity. In this episode with Fatia Muliyadiyanti and Haris Azhar we discuss their court victory following their criminalisation over a video discussing the involvement of Indonesia’s Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, in Papua’s mining operations and continued military occupation. We also discuss the sweeping victory of Prabowo Subianto ex-special forces commander with an alleged history of human rights abuses, in the 2024 general elections.
