Urgent Action update: Justice for survivor of sexual harassment

On 5 July 2019, the Indonesian Supreme Court rejected the final case review submitted by Baiq Nuril Maknun, a survivor of sexual abuse, and upheld its decision to find her guilty of distributing pornographic content. Sentenced to six months in prison and a fine of IDR 500 million (USD 34,644), Baiq Nuril Maknun is seeking amnesty from the President as her last resort for obtaining justice. Under Indonesian law, the president can only grant an amnesty after he/she seeks consideration from the advice of the parliament. A request for such advice was formally lodged by President Joko Widodo on 15 July 2019.

Take action.
