Indonesia: Setting the agenda: Human rights priorities for the new government
As the Indonesian people prepare for presidential elections in July 2014, Amnesty International calls on the presidential candidates to commit publicly to ensuring that human rights are protected, respected and fulfilled. The organization continues to receive credible reports of human rights violations across Indonesia. These include violations by Indonesian security forces, restrictions on the rights to freedom of expression and religion and the criminalization of peaceful political activists. There is also ongoing discrimination against women and religious minorities, while executions resumed in the country in 2013 after a four-year hiatus.
