Hi David.

I tried to search using my limited knowledge of bahasa Indonesia, and managed to find something relevant from a site on health decentralization policies maintained by the Center for Health Services Management, Faculty of Medicine, University of Gadjah Mada University a page with discussion on 'Good Samaritan law' in Indonesia (which is called "hukum orang Samaria yang baik" in bahasa Indonesia) and someone pointed to the Penal Code ( http://tinyurl.com/65xkgvu ), and here's the excerpt:

'Good Samaritan law' juga ada di Indonesia:
KUHP
Pasal 304: Barang siapa dengan sengaja menempatkan atau membiarkan seorang dalam keadaan sengsara, padahal menurut hukum yang berlaku baginya atau karena persetujuan dia wajib memberi kehidupan, perawatan atau pemeliharaan kepada orang itu, diancam dengan pidana penjara paling lama dua tahun delapan bulan atau pidana denda paling banyak empat ribu lima ratus rupiah.
Pasal 306 (2): Jika salah satu perbuatan berdasarkan pasal 304 dan 305 mengakibatkan kematian pidana penjara paling lama sembilan tahun.
Pasal 359: Barang siapa karena kesalahannya (kealpaannya) menyebabkan orang lain mati, diancam dengan pidana penjara paling lama lima tahun atau pidana kurungan paling lama satu tahun.
Pasal 361: Jika kejahatan yang diterangkan dalam bab ini dilakukan dalam menjalankan suatu jabatan atau pencarian, maka pidana ditambah dengan sepertiga dan yang bersalah dapat dicabut haknya untuk menjalankan pencarian dalam mana dilakukan kejahatan dan hakim dapat memerintahkan supaya putusannya diumumkan.
Pasal 531: Barangsiapa ketika menyaksikan bahwa ada orang yang sedang menghadapi maut tidak memberikan pertolongan yang dapat diberikan kepadanya tanpa selayaknya menimbulkan bahaya bagi dirinya atau orang lain, jika kemudian orang itu meninggal, diancam dengan pidana kurungan paling lama tiga bulan atau pidana denda paling banyak empat ribu lima ratus rupiah.

For the English version of the Penal Code, you can refer to UNHCR's Refworld (

I hope this can help.

Best,

Rita

Subject: [Int-Law] Request for Assistance 


Colleagues,

I am trying to determine if the following jurisdictions have legislation loosely known as “Good Samaritan” legislation.

I have searched Google, WorldLII, and other sites on AustLII, but as I am not sure what such legislation would be called, I am unable to find out exactly.

Jurisdictions are: Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Maldives, Thailand, and India

Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

Regards,

David Sinfield
