Indonesia: Excessive force: Impunity for police violence in Indonesia
Despite moves towards reform, Indonesia's police continue to be implicated in beatings, shootings and killings. Reports of human rights violations committed by the police continue to emerge, with police routinely using unnecessary and excessive force and firearms to quell peaceful protests. Illustrative examples are given in this briefing. Although the authorities have made some attempts to bring alleged perpetrators to justice using internal disciplinary mechanisms, criminal investigations into human rights violations by the police are all too rare, leaving many victims without access to justice and reparations.
