Jakarta (ANTARA) – Minister of Communication and Information Budi Arie Setiadi invited the public, especially the younger generation, to play an active role in protecting the nation from the negative impacts of online gambling.

“I invite all parties to combat online gambling, because the practice not only has a negative impact on the family economy, but also on relationships between family members,” said Setiadi in a statement from his office received in Jakarta, Monday.

Setiadi underlined that technological advances in the era of digitalization have positive and negative impacts on society. Society is required to use technology wisely to avoid the possibility of social distortion.

In this context, he cited online gambling and online loans as examples of negative practices that have emerged due to the rapid development of digital technology.

“We have witnessed many cases of deadly domestic violence caused by online lending and online gambling. “This is the negative side of digitalization,” he said.

Therefore, he encouraged the younger generation to take part in protecting society and future generations from similar cases.

For this reason, he asked educational institutions to actively disseminate information about the threats of online gambling by trying to increase people’s digital literacy.

“We need to intensify the promotion of curricula that highlight the positive side of digital technology in an effort to prevent digital crime,” he said.

Setiadi further emphasized that his ministry had prepared regulations aimed at protecting Indonesia’s young generation from misuse of the convenience offered by digital technology.

“We will soon issue regulations regarding online child protection which will become an instrument for child protection in the digital space. “That way, we try to help our children grow with positive content,” he stressed.

Previously, on Saturday (15/6), Setiadi highlighted that his party had succeeded in blocking almost three million online gambling content within a year.

“We have removed 2,945,150 pieces of online gambling content from 17 July 2023 to 13 June 2024,” said the Minister of Finance in a statement from his office.

The day before, President Joko Widodo issued a decision regarding the formation of an Online Gambling Eradication Task Force which was given the mandate to eradicate online gambling practices from Indonesia’s digital space.

The task force, whose term of office will last until December 31 this year, is chaired by the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Hadi Tjahjanto.
