What’s happening in the Net throughout Indonesia, however, is that there has been an outpouring of support for housewife Prita Mulyasari on Tweets and in blogs.

It would be interesting to see where all this leads and whether it would result in the freeing of Prita and the dismantling of the asinine Law on Electronic Information and Transaction.

In the meantime, bloggers can show support for Prita with the banners in a blog set up by Antyo Rentjoko, Enda Nasution, Tikabanget and Muhammad Zamroni.

An Indonesian woman was arrested on 13 May 2009 for allegedly circulating online defamatory statements against a hospital in Banten province, Indonesia.
According to the Southeast Asian Press Aliance, the prosecutor of Tangerang town in Banten said Prita Mulyasari was charged with violation of Article 27.3 of the Law on Electronic Information and Transaction. The charge carries a 6-year prison term.
It was learned that Prita ,who had been a patient of the Omni International Hospital, had asked her doctor for her medical record. When the doctor refused, Prita sent copies of her complaint via email.
As a result, the hospital filed a case against Prita. She is the second person to be charged under the Electronic Information and Transaction Law, after Iwan Piliang, an Indonesian blogger.
