I'm probono lawyer working for Legal Aid Center for the Press (LBH Pers). The Legal Aid Center for the Press (LBH Pers) was founded on July 11, 2003 in Jakarta. Legal Aid Center for the Press (LBH Pers) was spearheaded by the Alliance of Independent Journalists and a group of young lawyers who shared the same dream of upholding freedom of the press and expression. Their establishment was also triggered by pressure and control of the media and journalists by many parties, including the government, businessmen, and even politicians, after the fall of Suharto in 1998. LBH Pers is based on the principle of the Preamble of the 1945 Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
