“Agus mentioned prominent activists opposed to the previous bill â€" Agus Sudibyo from the Science, Aesthetic and Technology Foundation, lawyer Todung Mulya Lubis, anti-corruption activist Teten Masduki, human rights activist Usman Hamid and prominent sociologist Daniel Dhakidae â€" and said the ministry had attempted to address their concerns in the new draft,†according to the Globe report.
This problem is exacerbated by the fact that the definition in the Bill is not complete and relies on other laws and regulations to understand it well,â€Â said Agus Sudibyo, Deputy Director of SET Foundation, Jakarta. “If the Bill is not improved, it will undermine the institutionalisation of good governance, the eradication of corruption and the right to information in Indonesia.

This problem is exacerbated by the fact that the definition in the Bill is not complete and relies on other laws and regulations to understand it well," said Agus Sudibyo, Deputy Director of SET Foundation, Jakarta.
The bill, drafted by the Defense ..., 7 Feb 2013 [cached]
The bill, drafted by the Defense Ministry, stipulates that state information about security, foreign relations, law enforcement, intelligence and encryption should not be made available to the public, Press Council member Agus Sudibyo said.
"The TNI [Indonesian Military], for example, is a public institution funded by a state budget, and thus has to be transparent," Agus said during a recent discussion at the Indonesia Institute of Sciences (LIPI) in Jakarta.
"It will be dangerous if this bill is approved. LIPI defense expert Jaleswari Pramodhawardani echoed Agus, saying that the bill would limit press freedom, since things such as the defense budget would remain top secret.
"I understand that things related to state security, such as defense strategy, should be kept secret. The defense budget, on the other hand, should be made available to the public," Jaleswari said.
Agus said that the bill would be at cross purposes with the 2008 Freedom of Information Law, which came into force in April 2010. According to the law, all information, including that held by the TNI, should be made available to the public, as long as its revelation does not pose a threat to state security.
"Unlike the state secrets bill, the 2008 law regulates the type of the information that is confidential, instead of the institution," Agus said.
He criticized the bill for stating that whoever revealed a "state secret", as broadly defined by the bill, could be given hefty punishments, such as a maximum sentence of life imprisonment or required to pay a maximum fine of Rp 1 billion (US$103,231).
"This is so unfair. The punishments should be imposed on the officials and institutions who fail to protect the state secrets," Agus said.

A member of the Press Council and deputy director of the Science, Aesthetics and Technology (SET) Foundation, Agus Sudibyo, also noted the programs' contribution.
Agus said the media must follow up the improvement in public awareness of politics by "investigating" the case itself and revealing the facts behind the bailout of the ailing bank.
Like earlier scandals, he said, the case might remain a mystery once media attention faded.
Researcher and writer Agus ..., 3 May 2007 [cached]
Researcher and writer Agus Sudibyo was named Wednesday the first recipient of the Press Freedom Award for his advocacy of press freedom.He defeated 51 other candidates from the media circle.
The award, presented by the Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) on World Press Day, sought to recognize Agus's contribution through his many articles on media issues and his leading role in the Coalition of Freedom of Information -- a coalition of several NGOs striving to have a freedom for public information bill passed by the House of Representatives.
A former researcher with the Institute of Studies for the Free Flow of Information (ISAI), Agus is now deputy director of the Science and Aesthetics Foundation (SET) founded by film director Garin Nugroho.
