Indonesia acknowledges press freedom as a crucial element in promoting democracy. However, in some instances, press freedom may be limited to prevent a superfluity of freedom. Since as press freedom is a manifestation of human rights, legal restrictions must be imposed upon it, according to the conditions prescribed by human rights principles and the constitution, namely a justified necessity to accomplish a legitimate aim - such as to protect the rights and freedoms of others - and the exclusion of restrictions jeopardizing the essence of the right concerned. The findings of this research ultimately reveal that the legal regulation of press freedom in Indonesia requires a reassessment of the current constitutional guarantee for press freedom.
