One of those instruments is the Government Regulation in Lieu of Law Number 1 of 2020 which regulates the financial policy for COVID-19 which has been passed as Law Number 2 of 2020. However, there is a provision that is contrary to the administrative law principles, precisely in Article 27 paragraph (3). The norm is considered to close the gap of public access to take legal remedies to correct or examine decisions that have potential to cause harm related to actions or decisions. Even though Article 49 of Law Number 5 of 1986 also provides the similar meaning, however because the COVID-19 pandemic is categorized as a non-natural disaster, the COVID-19 Financial Policy Law should provide an expansion of state administrative court's (PTUN) absolute competence in examine and adjudicate administrative dispute cases. Therefore, this study tries to parse how the Regulations and Options for Public Legal Remedies towards Government Actions and Decisions in Non-Natural Disaster Emergencies in Indonesia.
