Indonesia - August 2022

Tightening Internet regulations

In July the Ministry of Communication and Information announced the requirement of all Electronic System Operators to register and apply for a licence to maintain their operations in the country. Several firms, including PayPal, Yahoo and Steam were subsequently blocked for failure to comply. Civil society organizations are concerned that the regulation does not comply with human rights principles and can be used for surveillance and censorship.
