Formappi Supports Disbandment of Anti-Pancasila Organizations

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Sebastian Salang, director of the Indonesian Parliament Watch (Formappi), said that his organization supports the government’s plan to disband anti-Pancasila mass organizations through a court process.

“Organizations that oppose the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) must be legally and firmly processed if the Government is committed to defending the country,” Sebastian said on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

Sebastian views that the government’s plan should not be considered as a short-term political move to suppress the freedom of expression.

“The fact is that there is an organization that blatantly wants to replace state ideology Pancasila,” Sebastian added. 

Earlier, Coordinating Political, Legal, and Security Affairs Minister Wiranto recently conducted a study regarding the existence of Islamic mass organization Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI). Wiranto assured that the move is not aimed at opposing Islamic mass organizations, but to defend the unity of the nation built based on Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution.

The Attorney General’s Office is currently waiting for the government to present evidence of violations committed by HTI. According to Attorney General H.M. Prasetyo, the evidence is already in the hands of the National Police, the Home Affairs Ministry, and the Law and Human Rights Minister. ARKHELAUS W.
