TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Legal Aid Center for the Press (LBH Pers) along with SAFEnet lodged a report of a terror case against Tantowi Anwari from the Journalist’s Union for Diversity (SEJUK) to the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) today, June 12.

Tantowi is one of the speakers in a discussion on racial discrimination against Papua that was held by the students’ community Teknokra of the University of Lampung on Thursday, June 11.

“We filed a complaint about digital threats experienced by Tantowi from June 10 until June 11, the forms of the threats, other people who also received the threats and the losses,” said LBH Pres advocate Rizki Yudha to Tempo.

Rizki said that the report was submitted online. LBH Pers and SAFEnet also accompanied Tantowi to make a direct report to two Komnas HAM commissioners, Sandrayati Monjaga and Hairansyah.

Aside from Tantowi’s case, Rizki said they also complained about the recent pattern of digital threats. “Particularly against those who are active in humanitarian works or those involved in academic forums,” he added.

Moreover, several acts of terrors also occurred in previous agendas, including a discussion on presidential impeachment held by the students’ community of Gadjah Mada University and on justice in Papua.

Therefore, Rizki recalled that during the meeting, LBH Pers demanded Komnas HAM’s keep an eye on not only Tantowi’s case, “but also other cases with a similar pattern [of digital threats] that occur in a close series of time lately,” he noted.
