A proposed ban on alcohol, which first reared its head in 2015, has come back before the House of Representatives and is aimed at people drinking and those caught producing, distributing or storing alcohol in Indonesia.
If approved, people could face between two and ten years in jail.

AA Ngurah Adi Ardhana, chairman of Bali’s regional legislative council has, however, said “It is too superficial; Bali will definitely reject it. We are a unitary state built on diversity, and the potential economic impact involved is unacceptable.’
