Abstract

Long before information disorder via online become a global problem, Indonesia has criminalized the distribution of information disorder. The prohibition is regulated in article 14 and 15 Law No. 1 the Year 1946 which part of the Indonesia penal law. Punishment for this criminal provision is temporary imprisonment. However, the social context when Law No. 1 the Year 1946 issued is different from the current situation. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to analyses Indonesia's penal policy-related information disorder and whether that penal policy suitable for the current situation and condition where the information disorder becomes faster and massive. Using document research and a comparative approach with Singapore who prohibited this conduct under the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act year 2019, it shows that Indonesia's penal policy requires a paradigm shift to solve the distribution information disorder via online problems without violating the freedom of expression as a fundamental right. In the end, this research has good implications for planning penal policy in the future.
