Indonesia's Controversial New Criminal Code

Indonesian lawmakers have ratified changes to its colonial-era criminal code that impose bans on insulting the President and state institutions, views that contradict state ideology, protests without a permit, sex outside marriage and non-marital cohabitation. Dr Ross Tapsell, Senior Lecturer at Australian National University tells us why the government wants to impose these laws and what it means for civil liberties in the 3rd largest democratic country in the world.
