Baiq Nuril, the ITE Law and #MeToo Indonesian Style

Abstract

Indonesia’s Information and Electronic Transactions Law (the ITE Law) has all too frequently led to victims being charged, rather than perpetrators. The latest is Baiq Nuril Maknun (sometimes also known as “Makmun”). Unlike most other victims, it now appears Baiq Nuril’s encounter with the law will have a positive outcome – albeit after a long period of suffering and unemployment.
