Indonesia: Amendments of the Mass Organizations Law expand threats to the freedom of association
Amnesty International urges the Indonesian authorities to immediately revoke or revise the Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Peraturan Pemerintah Pengganti Undang-Undang or Perppu) No. 2/2017 amending the Law on Mass Organizations (Undang-Undang Organisasi Kemasyarakatan) to bring it into line with international human rights law and standards. The organization is extremely concerned that the new legislation will impose restrictions on freedom of association, expression, and thought, conscience and religion which are even more extensive than those currently set out in the Law on Mass Organization.
