Tebo Regency Regulation No. 6 of 2003 on the Surveillance and Policing of Alcoholic Beverages

This regional regulation is an example of a legislative instrument that, arguably, Islamises public life in Indonesia, but makes no specific reference to Islam or religion (agama). It prohibits all persons and entities from producing, packaging, and distributing alcoholic beverages, unless permission has first been obtained from the Tebo Regent (art 2(1)). The regulation also prohibits alcohol points of sale from being within a 500m radius of places of worship, schools, hospitals, residential areas, and office blocks (art 4(2)). It also specifies that alcohol may only be consumed in licensed establishments (art 5).
