Judicial Review of Law No. 36 of 2009, Ruling in Case No. 66

Petitioners, Indonesian tobacco farmers and workers in the tobacco industry, filed a constitutional challenge to Indonesia’s Health law that regulated the use of tobacco.  After establishing the right of the petitioners to challenge the law, the court looked at previous challenges to the same law.  The court decided that petitioners’ challenge was close enough to previous, already decided challenges, to preclude this case and rejected the petition.
