More children get caught up in pornography in Indonesia

The number of children involved in pornography and cybercrime cases has increased rapidly over the years, a report from the Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI) states. The report recorded 322 cases in 2014, an increase from 247 cases in 2013 and 175 cases in 2012, with most cases relating to online pornography.

“The rise of access to information and technology has contributed to this increase, as well as a lack of parental guidance,” KPAI deputy chairperson Maria Advianti told The Jakarta Post earlier this week.

According to the Indonesian Internet Service Providers Association (APJII), Indonesia’s total number of internet users reached 88.1 million people in 2014, placing it sixth in the world. Ninety-five percent of these internet users access social networking sites.
