KONFRONTASI -  

Ali Jasmin was only 13 when Australian authorities arrested him for transporting asylum seekers from Indonesia to Australia in December 2009. Rather than detaining him in a facility for juvenile perpetrators, Ali Jasmin was put in an adult facility, which is a clear violation of Australian and international law. He was not the only one. A 2012 inquiry by the Australian Human Rights Commission showed that Australian authorities had unlawfully detained and punished hundreds of Indonesian youth.
