ABC News: Indonesian student faces hearing over social media post

An Indonesian student, who could be jailed for a social media post, faces a hearing at her university.
What? A country that is so crazy about all these social networking platforms and using it so heavily and then this message should be criminal? o_O
She then sent friends the group message on the social networking application Path saying: "Jogja is poor, stupid and uncultured. Friends in Jakarta and Bandung, please don't stay in Jogja."
Responding to complaints from offended residents, Yogyakarta police then arrested Ms Sihombing for allegedly breaching the Criminal Code and the 2008 Electronic Transactions and Information Law (ITE), inciting hatred and defamation.
