Indonesia: Repeal or revise all provisions in the new Aceh Islamic Criminal Code that violate human rights
Amnesty International and the Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (ICJR) are gravely concerned about the passage of the Aceh Islamic Criminal Code (Qanun Jinayat) which comes into effect throughout Aceh Province on 23 October 2015. The code will criminalize consensual sexual relations and extend the use of caning as a form of punishment. These provisions represent a clear contravention of Indonesia’s Constitution and are a violation of international human rights treaties to which Indonesia is a state party. Our organisations call for an immediate review or repeal of any provision, which violates human rights.
