Indonesia’s Press Freedom Improves
Friday, 04 May, 2007 | 13:38 WIB

Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: The Press Council Chairman, Ichlasul Amal, said that the level of press freedom in Indonesia is at the rank of 103. This is progress compared to two years before, which saw it at levels 105 and 106.

“Fewer journalists underwent violent acts from institutions or were threatened by groups of people,” said Ichlasul after with the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) met President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the President’s office yesterday (3/5). The meeting was also attended by Information and Communication Minister Sofyan Djalil in commemoration of World Press Day. In the last six years, the Press Council received 1,100 complaints.

What does the rank of 103 mean? In the world?

Indonesia has a press council? Does that mean they have a press code?

Does anyone know if there is a press council and a code of conduct?
