Komisi Nasional Hak Asasi Manusia or the National Commission on Human Rights is located on Jl, Latuharhary No. 4B, Central Jakarta.

National Commission on Human Rights is an independent agency in Indonesia, which holds the same level as other state agencies to carry out the functions of assessment, protection, research, extension, monitoring, investigation and mediation of issues on human rights.

The Commission was established in 1993 by Presidential Decree No. 50 of 1993 on the National Commission on Human Rights. Currently, the Commission operates under a mandate given by the Law No. 39 Year 1999 on Human Rights

The current building of the Commission is the former office of Lembaga Sandi Negara, or the State Secret Information Security Agency. In the past, countless people were tortured in the bunker of this office.

It is said that the security often witness ghosts of the torture victims during the New Order. The bunker was then demolished in 2006 when the Commission’s office was being renovated.
