Minister on side of journalists
INFORMATION Minister Yunus Yosfiah is on the side of journalists.
He assured them recently that he was sympathetic to their cause and would do everything possible to meet their demands.
“I am on your side,” said the active three-star general, drawing a round of applause from journalists.
Lieutenant-General Yosfiah also did not shy away from addressing sensitive issues like “terror, intimidation and telephone culture imposed on reporters”.
He added that he supported the establishment of media organisations other than the government-recognised Indonesia Journalists Association.
