    Bojo’s Non-Threats? WHO IS JACK DOYLE? 

    Hilarious, this, but somebody needs to find a photo of this geezer Jack Doyle, so if you get threatened with defamation proceedings, you know it can’t be him!


    Bojo needs to tell Doyle to man up or step down!


    You’ll see what I mean!

      True, very funny.
      But she is definitely not a useful inluence on her husband.

    Defamation Drivel – Ervani Free, Now How About Florence? 

    I must admit I’d have been inclined to join in the applause, cries and sobs after Ervani Emi Handayani was acquitted this week of electronic media defamation. The Judge, Sulistyo, said Ervani’s case did not meet elements of the definition of defamation as charged by prosecutors.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2015/01/06/court-acquits-facebook-user-over-defamation.html

    The 29-year-old had used Facebook to call her husband’s ex-supervisers ‘childish’ and ‘unsuitable’ for their jobs.

    And they TOOK her to COURT? Demanding FIVE MONTHS BEHIND BARS?

    Hell, I get worse regularly (admittedly by cowardly expat pinkos who won’t provide their real names!) and it would never occur to me to go whining to the cops.

    • But then being uptight and tantrum-prone does seem to be all too common these days.

    • … 

    The same JP report reminds us that poor young Florence, in Jogjakarta, who has been hounded mercilessly under the same bizarre Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law, is still facing persecution.

    All she ever did was to post her opinion of that city, viz.“Yogya is poor, stupid and uncivilized. Jakarta and Bandung friends, don’t stay in Yogya. Yogyakartans are b*****ds.

    I certainly did not agree with her -I have enjoyed my many visits there.

    But I won’t be going again, because a number of Yogyakarta community groups reported her to the police, deeming her Path comments to be insulting to Yogyakarta’s residents and allegedly in violation of Article 27 (3) of the law, which carries a maximum punishment of six years in prison and a fine of Rp 1 billion (US$80,000).

    Grown-ups can only be baffled by such witch-hunting.

    Florence may yet go to jail again – she got clapped in a cell for two days at the start of their caterwauling. If she does, I’d certainly appeal to everyone to boycott the place.

    The law may so,etimes be an ass, but people who misuse it to vent their vindictiveness are absolute A-Holes.

    Jokowi And His Foes – One Law for the Weak, Another for the Others? 

    I’ve had a restful day at home, a planned trip into town postponed, firstly, pleasingly, by a visit from my favourite person in Indonesia, and then, regrettably, by the rain.

    So lots of time to blog-post , having scanned the news for the past week here and abroad.

    More on that case we mentioned last night, the young man of humble status clapped in a cell for insulting President Jokowi.

    Ditangkap? Karena Facebook? Ini Revolusi Mental, Pak Presiden?

    • It turns out the ‘insult’ was not only insulting but also ‘pornographic. ‘ So the arrest is under the Pornography Law! That’s the absurd legislation that put Playboy’s Indonesian editor behind bars for a magazine whose local edition was about as pornographic as The Beano.

    • I can’t locate the porny Faceook post that’s caused the man’s detention, and wouldn’t use it if I could. I don’t want to get shut down. Nor face 12 years which is the threat to the chap in trouble, accused of ‘defamation’ as well.
    • ==========================

    But I note the Police HQ spokesman today says that – “The suspect apologized but that is his own business. We can’t broker a mediation. It is up to Pak Jokowi….” 


    jokowi-twitter Jokowi


    Arsyad’s arrest has caused a public outcry and many have called for President Jokowi to forgive Arsyad. In a television interview on Wednesday, Arsyad’s mother, Mursidah, cried and bowed down asking for Jokowi’s forgiveness for her son.

    But some Jokowi supporters are adamant. One of them said – “He is a 24-year-old man who has the ability to tell the difference between right and wrong.”    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2014/10/30/street-vendor-arrested-insulting-jokowi-megawati.html

    Maybe so, but TWELVE years  is ridiculous!

    I said last night that when the IslamoNazi fuhrer here insulted President SBY, police took no action. I suppose SBY didn’t lodge a complaint against the thug gang, but that shouldn’t have mattered. The same top cop quoted above also said that “We started investigating the case not solely based on the report. We have the authority to pursue the case.”

    So there! 

    And how about all the other outrageous stuff that went on during the election campaign, that Prabowo hanger-on, Taufik, who issued brazen threats against the Chairman of the Election Commission.

    Taufik has been reported to the police, for making kidnap threats against the Election Commission Chairman. And the police have assigned protection to the Chairman of the KPU, all its members… Police provide protection for KPU officials following threat




    Now maybe Taufik’s case woud never have got to trial. Maybe if it had, he’d have been acquitted. But again, that’s beside the point. A threat to kidnap is a serious crime, and surely, if  poor little Arsyad is under arrest, in detention, while the case rattles along, Taufik too should have been brought in until THAT case was resolved.

    No? Have I misunderstood the legal processes?

    I stand ready to be corrected if so.

    But the thing is, Taufik is a bigwig. So too was/is the FPI Fuhrer. 




    C’mon, Pak Presiden, let the guy go home. His mum’s just an onion peeler in a local market – she needs her boy.
