Legislators Demand Freeze for Violent Mass Organizations
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:A top official of the Betawi Brotherhood Forum (FBR) Edwan Hamidy considers plans of the House of Representatives (DPR) to freeze mass organizations allegedly utilizing violence as a rumor. “It can’t be true,” he told Tempo on Sunday, July 1. “There are procedures to carry that out, according to regulation No.8/1985,” he said.
The House’s special committee working on a regulation over mass organizations wish to freeze organizations that have bothered people. Some of them are Pemuda Pancasila (PP) and FBR. “PP and FBR fight each other too often. They scare people,” said the committee chairman Abdul Malik Haramain on Saturday, June 30. Haramain also said that the government can ban the organizations by working together with Domestic Affairs Ministry and the National Police. The government can also stop the funding for those two organizations. The last fighting between FBR and PP was on June 27. Head of FBR, Muhidin, was killed on the site.
