Indonesia: Printers of independent journal arrested

, Index number: ASA 21/074/1996

This document describes Amnesty International's concerns about the arrest of two men on charges of insulting the President and the government, apparently in connection with their alleged involvement in printing an unlicensed magazine in Indonesia. Amnesty International considers the two to have been detained solely for their peaceful and lawful activities as printers of an independent magazine, and therefore considers them to be prisoners of conscience.
