The Supreme Court of the Republic of Indonesia finally issued a circular letter prohibiting judges from granting requests for the registration of interfaith marriages. This letter is to respond to the polemic on the determination of judges in breaking up interfaith marriages in various regions. Supreme Court Circular Letter (SEMA) Number 2 of 2023 concerning Guidelines for Judges in Trialing Cases for Requests for Registration of Inter-Religious Marriages of Different Religions and Beliefs. The SEMA (Supreme Court Circular Letter) was signed by Chief of Supreme Court, Muhammad Syarifuddin.[1]

The following is the contents of the SEMA (Supreme Court Circular Letter) as referred to:[2]
"In order to provide certainty and legal unity in adjudicating applications for the registration of marriages between people of different religions and beliefs, judges must be guided by the following provisions: 

1. A valid marriage is one that is carried out according to the laws of each religion and belief, in accordance with Article 2 paragraph 1 and Article 8 letter f of Law Number 1 of 1974 concerning Marriage.

2. The court did not grant the application for the registration of marriages between people of different religions and beliefs."
