    Fahira Idris: It is Time for Indonesia to Have Firm Rules Regarding Alcoholic Drinks

    UMMAT DAILY ■ DPD RI member Fahira Idris revealed that alcoholic drinks have become a serious global problem to get attention. Apart from being one of the triggers for death, both due to diseases caused by alcohol consumption and traffic accidents, alcoholic drinks also trigger various criminal acts.

    The cost of medical treatment for diseases caused by alcohol consumption, said Fahira, is also quite large and has the potential to disrupt the financing of the public health system (a country's health budget).

    "So that many countries, even the most liberal, secular, and have a tradition of drinking alcohol, are aware that they need a special law on alcoholic drinks. Hopefully in 2021 Indonesia will have strict rules regarding alcoholic drinks at the level of a law," said Fahira Idris. Jakarta, yesterday.

    However, Article 8 also states that all these prohibitions do not apply to limited interests, namely customary interests, religious rituals, tourists, pharmacies, and places permitted by statutory regulations. All of these limited interests will be regulated in more detail in a Government Regulation after this bill becomes law.
