Indonesia's parliament passed a new criminal code in December 2022 that contains provisions violating international human rights standards. Already marginalized groups, including women and girls, LGBT people, and religious minorities will be particularly affected. Authorities did little to stop groups targeting religious minorities with intimidation and threats, using hundreds of discriminatory regulations, including the blasphemy law. Military and police units continue to abuse human rights with impunity. The government restricts access of foreign journalists to Papua provinces on the pretext of national security, hiding serious ongoing abuses by security forces in the region.
