However, the MCIT Minister proposed in early 2015 that the revision would be focused to reduce the maximum prison sentence from the current six years. Content Filtering On July 2014, the MCIT enacted a Ministerial Decree No.19 / 2014 (Permen 19/2014) to address Internet sites that were considered to contain "negative content".
