While there may be more former police now in high level government positions, former military certainly remain in some of the highest positions.I would say another thing Police-related that might motivate the military to ask for more authority in non-military matters is that the Police has increased in (political) prominence under the current government. The Minister of Home Affairs is a Policeman, the Chief of Intelligence is a Policeman, more Policemen being appointed to this or that position and hell, for quite a while and in the not to recent past, the Dirjen Imigrasi was a Policeman (https://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronny_F._Sompie).
Included in the Omnibus laws last year was "The law also bans insulting the president, the vice president, state institutions, Indonesia’s national ideology known as Pancasila, and the national flag.
As the police force is a state institution this could be used to jump on anyone critical of the police. There was much debate about many of the new laws and I am not sure if the one above got through.
If it did and we had a new, right wing president then these kind of laws could be used to stifle reporting of corruption or even comment in in forums such as this.
"....It is not quantitative, so it could be interpret according to the interest of who interpret it and the power, money they have."
This the original version of the Criminal CodeSo much then will depend on the incoming government. If one were to say "the Indonesian police force is corrupt" this might be regarded as fair comment given the number of police found acting corruptly. On the other hand there are doubtless many police who are not corrupt and therefore such a remark might be deemed insulting.
Differentiate between an insult and a criticism:
An insult is to hurt or disparage another person.
A criticism is to call attention to a defect or deficiency.
Sorry I mean will not put you on the wrong side of the law.So my understanding here is to insult some policemen (as person or group of people) is not against the law. To Insult (not criticize) police as a state institution is against the law. So using the wording policemen (persons) rather than police (institution) will not put you on the right side of the law.
