MK Grants Plantation Law Judicial Review

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Constitutional Court (MK) has granted a petition for judicial review of Law No.39 of 2014 on plantations (Plantation Law) proposed by four non-governmental organizations.

"It is hereby declared that some petitions of the petitioners are granted," Constitutional Court Chief Arief Hidayat said when he announced the provision in Jakarta, on Friday (28/10).

The court claimed that article 27 point (3) and article 29 in the Law are inconstitutional since local farmers are required a legal permit to perform plantation. 

In addition, article 30 of the Law on the variety of plantation will be reviewed.

The petitioners of the judicial review are Palm Oil Farmers Society (SPKS), the Sawit Watch Organization (PSW), Indonesian Farmers Alliance (API), and Indonesian Farmers Union (SPI). They criticized a number of articles in the Plantation Law that do not favor local and indigenous farmers.
