Indonesia: Labour activists detained

, Index number: ASA 21/006/1994

AI is concerned about the detention in recent days of at least 19 trade union activists from the Indonesian Prosperous Labour Union (SBSI). AI believes them to be prisoners of conscience and is appealing for their immediate and unconditional release. Three of the 19, Mochtar Pakpahan, Sunarty and Trisjanto, have been charged under Article 155 of the Criminal Code. The arrests appear to be in response to a call for a general strike on 11 February issued by SBSI.
