On May 8, 2017, the Government of Indonesia announced the plan to disband the notorious community organization (Ormas) Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI). The Coordinating Minister for  Politics, Law, and Security Wiranto said that HTI had to be disbanded because their activities spurred division in the community, which can threaten security and public order, and endanger the integrity of the Republic. But the decision was faced with one obstacle: the Law No. 17/2013 regarding Ormas. The law explicitly states that in order to disband an Ormas, the Government must file for lawsuit at the district court, a process that consumes a lot of time. To avoid a lengthy process, the Government decided to change the provisions of the law by promulgating the Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perppu) No. 2/2017 to revise the Law No. 17/2013. To subscribe please click here
