Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2017


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Indonesia is a multiparty democracy. In 2014 voters elected Joko Widodo (commonly known as Jokowi) as president. Domestic and international observers judged the 2014 legislative and presidential elections free and fair. Domestic and international observers judged local elections during 2017 for regional executives to be free and fair.

Civilian authorities generally maintained control over security forces.

The most significant human rights issues included: claims of arbitrary or unlawful killings by government security forces; torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment by police; harsh and life threatening conditions in prisons and detention centers; arbitrary detention by the government; detention of political prisoners; limits on the freedom of expression due to laws addressing treason, blasphemy, defamation, and decency; limits on freedom of association; official corruption and attempts by government elements to undermine efforts to prosecute corrupt officials; criminalization of same-sex sexual activities at the local level and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) persons; and forced or compulsory labor.

Impunity for serious human rights violations remained a concern. In certain cases, the courts meted out disparate and more severe punishment against civilians than government officials found guilty of the same crimes.
