Although in the formulation of the Budapest Convention on Cyber Crime in 2001 as stipulated in the European Treaty Series (ETS) Number 185, the crimes against the integrity of the person is not included in the classification of cyber crime.
"Therefore, it is better defamation in UU ITE revisited whether to set well here, considering the matter of defamation has been regulated in the Criminal Code," he explained.
Second, the PKS faction argued that the existence of several proposed amendments contained in the second amendment of the ITE law concerning the reduction of criminal threat, can be an alternative solution to the problems that occurred during this time.

Fourth, the PKS faction assessed the issue of interception (wiretapping) arranged on the ITE Law Article 31, within the framework of the rule of law which should be governed by laws, not by government regulation, as the Constitutional Court in 2006.
"However, ten years after the Constitutional Court's decision has not been implemented. This mandate is also indispensable to uniform practice interception also set separately in the Police Act, the Act and the Corruption Eradication Commission Law on State Intelligence,” said Alumnus doctorate from the University of Manchester, UK.
