Rakyat Merdeka ("Free People") is an Indonesian daily tabloid newspaper, owned by the country’s largest media group Jawa Pos. The newspaper has gained prominence as a result of its controversial headlines and its "gritty, often abrasive, style" [1], with articles and caricatures that frequently strongly criticize the political establishment.

In a separate case, Suparatkam, another editor, was given a suspended six-month jail sentence and a one-year probation, after being found guilty by a Jakarta court for "spreading hatred" after he published headlines critical of the Indonesian government and then President Megawati Sukarnoputri [2]. On 27 March 2006, the newspaper published a front page editorial cartoon depicting the Australian Prime and Foreign Ministers as dingos.
