Indonesia to tighten terror law

Date: August 14, 2003
Author: John Aglionby
QUOTE: "If the security forces were more professional and implemented the powers they already have, there would be no need for this debate," [a human rights official] said.

ABSTRACT: Indonesia is strengthening its already severe anti-terrorism laws in the aftermath of a Jakarta bombing, but certain human rights officials disapprove of this decision, insinuating that it is not the fault of lax laws, but human error that allowed the bombing to happen.
