Indonesia

A few months ago, I wrote a letter to the Indonesian Ambassador to Canada, regarding his country's accession to the "UN Convention on the Rights of the Child", and its "Optional Protocol" - all as part of general Amnesty International activities.

Unfortunately, the Ambassador was recalled to Jakarta, and died soon thereafter. However, it seems my letter was forwarded to the office of the Minister-Counselor to Canada, and I recieved a detailed reply. In it, His Excellency, Minister-Counselor Mala, detailed his country's steps in domestic ratification of the treaty, providing references to domestic legislations & Presidential Decrees; it is certainly the most detailed response I've recieved to a political letter.

For reference, His Excellency cites:


  • Presidential Decree No. 40, May 11th 2004, the National Action Plan on Human Rights 2004-2009

  • Law No. 23, 2002 on the Protection of Children's Rights

  • Presidential Decree No. 87, 2002, National Plan of Action against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children

  • Presidential Decree No. 88, 2002, National Plan of Action on the Elimination of Trafficking of Women and Children



... as indicitave of his country's ongoing ratification process & intentions. Any comments?
