Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Ministry of Communication and Information has urged the Telegram messaging service to stop spreading content related to online gambling on its platform.

Director General of Informatics Applications Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan stated that the ministry had sent a second letter to Telegram and asked for a response within a week.

“We have called Telegram and sent a follow-up letter. We identified around 600 pieces of gambling content that needed action. “They have one week to respond,” he said, Friday.

He explained that the ministry would send three letters to Telegram. If there is no response after the third letter, the platform will be blocked.

A gap of one week will be given between the second and third letters, he added.

Through these firm steps, Pangerapan said the ministry is optimistic that it can clean up online gambling advertising content on the Telegram platform and ensure it complies with regulations in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Communication and Information, Budi Arie Setiadi, stated that the government would fine digital platforms that were proven to allow the spread of online gambling content.

“If you are not cooperative in eradicating online gambling on your platform, then I will impose a fine of up to IDR 500 million (around US$30,327) per content item,” he said in an online press conference, Friday.

“Based on monitoring, some content with keywords related to online gambling is still available on digital platforms,” ​​he said.

According to the Minister of Finance, as many as 20,241 content items related to online gambling were found in Google search results from November 7 2023 to May 22.
