By Amnesty International, , Index number: ASA 21/028/2011

In this open letter and ahead of the seventh anniversary of the killing of prominent human rights activist Munir bin Thalib (Munir), Amnesty International expresses its concern about the continuing lack of accountability for his death. The organization urges the Attorney General to initiate a new investigation into the case as a matter of priority. The lack of accountability in Munir's case contributes to an ongoing sense of fear among human rights defenders in Indonesia and calls in to question the government’s commitment to protecting human rights defenders.
