Indonesia: Judicial review of law number 1/pnps/1965 concerning the prevention of religious abuse and/or defamation

, N° d'index: ASA 21/002/2010

This Amicus brief is submitted on behalf of ARTICLE 19, the Global Campaign for Free Expression, Amnesty International, the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies, and the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights ("the Amici") in accordance with the permission to intervene in this case granted by the Constitutional Court of Indonesia. The Amici submit that laws that seek to prevent discussion and debate on religion including defamation of religions and blasphemy laws are fundamentally incompatible with Indonesia's obligations under international human rights law.
