Topic: Exclusive: Indonesia plans tougher anti-terrorism laws after Jakarta attack


By Agustinus Beo Da Costa and Kanupriya Kapoor JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia has drawn up plans for tougher anti-terrorism laws following last month's militant attack on the capital, including detention without trial for up to three months compared with a week now, government sources told Reuters on Tuesday. The proposals are likely to draw fire from human rights activists, who have warned against jeopardizing hard-won freedoms over nearly two decades since the end of authoritarian president Suharto's rule. President Joko Widodo's government moved quickly to reform the country's 2003 anti-terrorism law after Jan. 14, when four men attacked Jakarta's business district with guns and explosives.
