Defamation

Defamation is a serious crime that also gives rise to expensive civil liabilities. In Indonesia, pursuant to our Electronic Information and Transactions Law, cyber defamation and bullying are punishable with up to 6 years of imprisonment and fines of up to Rp1,000,000,000 (about USD70,000).

The domestic and multinational dimensions of cyber defamation and bullying render it particularly hard to entirely eradicate the offending media from a person’s digital identity.

Click-bait fake-news press and social media influencers often carelessly alter and sometimes utterly destroy the public and private lives of not only those who are defamed, but also their families, friends, and their social as well as commercial prospects.

In many cultural and religious systems, defamation is a sin.

Cyber defamation and bullying often require responses in more than one jurisdiction simultaneously. Satrio Law Firm is able to organize both the domestic and the international efforts necessary to efficiently obtain redress for your injuries.
