Jakarta Governor Sentenced to 2 Years Prison for Blasphemy

JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The European Union Delegation to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam issues the following statement in agreement with the EU Heads of Mission in Indonesia:
"The European Union takes note of the decision of the North Jakarta District Court on the case involving Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama delivered on 9 May.
The European Union has always praised the leadership of Indonesia as the world largest Muslim majority country, a strong democracy and a country with a proud tradition of tolerance and pluralism. We call on the Indonesian government, its institutions and its people to continue this long standing tradition of tolerance and pluralism.
Indonesia and the European Union have agreed to promote and protect the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights such as the freedom of thought, conscience and religion and freedom of expression.
The European Union recalls that those freedoms are interdependent, interrelated and mutually reinforcing rights, protecting all persons and protecting also the right to express opinions on any or all religions and beliefs in accordance with the international human rights law.
The European Union has consistently stated that laws that criminalize blasphemy when applied in a discriminatory manner can have a serious inhibiting effect on freedom of expression and on freedom of religion or belief."
