Indonesia: Annual Report 2012 extract

Indonesia assumed the chair of ASEAN and in May was elected to the UN Human Rights Council for a third consecutive term. The government strengthened the national police commission but police accountability mechanisms remained inadequate. The security forces faced persistent allegations of human rights violations. Provincial authorities in Aceh increasingly used caning as a judicial punishment. Peaceful political activities continued to be criminalized in Papua and Maluku.

Indonesia: Annual Report 2011 extract

The security forces tortured and otherwise ill-treated detainees, and used excessive force against protesters. No adequate accountability mechanisms were in place to ensure justice or act as an effective deterrent against police abuses. The criminal justice system remained unable to address ongoing impunity for current and past human rights violations. Restrictions on freedom of expression and discrimination against religious minorities and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups continued.

Amnesty International Report 2011: Iran entry

The authorities maintained severe restrictions on freedom of expression, association and assembly. Hundreds of political dissidents, women’s rights activists and other human rights defenders, lawyers, journalists and students were imprisoned. Torture and other ill-treatment of detainees were routine and committed with impunity. Women continued to face discrimination under the law and in practice. The authorities acknowledged 252 executions, but the true total could be even higher.
