The Union of Print Media Companies (SPS) announced on Monday that it would assist the Press Council in verifying media institutions in the country in its efforts to uphold the professionalism of the Indonesian press.
The SPS said that the union, which examines the quality of print media in the country, would help the council in conducting the verification process.
"We will focus on our members," SPS secretary-general Heddy Lugito told a press briefing at the union's headquarters in Jakarta.
The SPS has 471 print media companies registered as members. The organization talked to the press hours after its leaders met the council members to prepare the process.
Press Council chairman Yosep "Stanley" Adi Prasetyo said the Press Council agreed to grant the SPS the role on condition of free verification for all members, unlike the current practice of the SPS charging up to Rp 7 million (US$ 526.25) to certify a media company. (wit)
