Wiretapping Raises Privacy Concerns
SURVEILLANCE—INDONESIAFebruary 21, 2013
Though the Indonesian Constitution specifically guarantees its citizens’ privacy rights, the rules governing wiretapping by law enforcement remain vague and incomplete, reports The Jakarta Post. In 2008, the Constitutional Court stated the need for a distinct law addressing wiretapping, but no such reform has been made. Since various agencies utilise wiretapping and do not clear it through one central body, practices and standards vary widely, the report states.
