HTI to File Judicial Review against Perppu on Mass Organization

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI) spokesman Ismail Yusanto said that 17 mass organization today will be filing a judicial review against regulation in lieu of law (Perppu) on mass organization to the Constutitional Court (MK). They will also seek support from the House of Representatives (DPR) to reject the regulation.

HTI has also planned to stage protests against the Perppu No. 2/2017 on Mass Organization signed by President Joko Widodo. HTI is one of many organizations facing disbandment for promoting the concept of caliphate.

Ismail Yusanto said that based on its articles of association the HTI is an Islamic dakwah movement. Nevertheless, the activities are carried out in the framework of the NKRI (Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia) based on the national ideology Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution.

"What about pluralism and diversity? There’s nothing to be worried about," Ismail said in a discussion on the Perpu in Jakarta yesterday.

"Demonstrations will not only be held for HTI because the perppu threatens all organizations," HTI Executive Council chairman Rokhmat S. Labib told a press conference at his office on Wednesday, July 12.

Rokhmat added that the Perpu says any mass organization that contravene the Pancasila may be disbanded. The members and executive directors of such organizations will also face prison time. HTI is bemused by the issuance of the regulation and considers it as a product of a ‘dictatorial regime’.

"What has the HTI done wrong? It doesn’t kill people, doesn’t spark riot, doesn’t bomb people, doesn’t sell state assets," Rochmat said.

President Jokowi has allowed those who object to the Perpu on Mass Organization, also related to HTI disbandment, to raise their protest through the court.
