  • Appraisal of Admissibility of Electronic Evidence in Legal Proceedings in
           Nigeria

    • Authors: Peter Ademu Anyebe
      Abstract: The use of computers in Nigeria has grown exponentially in the last decade. Financial transactions, communication systems, modern automobiles and so on depend on computers. It is now an electronic age where daily transactions are conducted on the platform of electronic devises. In the event of disputes, parties are bound to rely on electronic evidence. It is in view of this development that in order to adopt the international best practice, the Evidence Act, 2004 was repealed and replaced with Evidence Act, 2011 to accommodate the admissibility of electronic generated documents before the Nigerian courts. The focus of this paper is to examine the prominent provisions of the Act relating to admissibility of electronic evidence. It will equally appraise the proof of conditions for admissibility of computer generated evidence, admissibility of electronic evidence in legal proceedings in Nigeria and challenges in determining the probative value of electronic evidence. The paper concludes that the provisions of the Evidence Act, 2011 on electronic proofs are largely inadequate and therefore, there is the need to understudy other jurisdictions in order to adequately confront the challenges facing admissibility of electronic evidence in Nigeria. Keywords: keywords, admissibility, appraisal, document, electronic, evidence, hearsay

  • Juridical Review on Safeguards in Connection with Legal Protection of the
           

    • Authors: Rahayu Hartini
      Abstract: Safeguard is one of the legal instruments to protect domestic industries from the increase in imported goods that occur in normal trade but endanger domestic industries. To avoid this, the WTO and the Government of Indonesia issued protection regulations. The purpose of this study is to find out 1). Protection of domestic industrial law against protection in WTO rules and regulations in Indonesia. 2). Adjustment of a substance in Indonesia to protect the provisions. This legal research is normative juridical using the Law approach, analyzed in analytical content. Research results: 1). There are still some weaknesses in the protection rules in Indonesia because there are no specific rules on protection because they are still regulated in the Customs Law, while each WTO rule governed in each article is different, there is no absolute and relative explanation in terms of the imposition of safeguards. 2). in implementing safeguards there are still differences found in the form of safeguard provisions in WTO rules and regulations in Indonesia. Keywords: Safeguard, Regulation, Legal Protection.

  • Doctrine of Stares Decisis in Nigeria: A Step to Conclusion

    • Authors: Peter Ademu Anyebe
      Abstract: Sometimes, one has the privilege of writing papers on existing topics like torture and targeted killing, hate speech and hedgehogs. But sometimes one has to pick up a shovel and go back to the dark, featureless coalface of basic jurisprudence. This is such a paper. There is nothing exciting about it except that it addresses an elementary issue that everyone agrees has not been properly resolved and that we will need to think about. Stare decisis has been called many things, among them “a principle of policy”, “a series of prudential and pragmatic consideration”, and simply “the preferred course”. This paper focuses on stare decisis with respect to often overlooked fact that stare decisis is also a step to conclusion. The simple reason for this is that principles established by previous cases are not, however, inviolable. For example, when a court is sufficiently convinced that a previous decision was erroneous, the court may overrule that decision. This paper will conclude that stare decisi is a principle of decision making, not a rule and need not be applied when the precedent at issue is unworkable or badly reasoned.

  • Criminal Law Enforcement Based on Restorative Justice in Indonesia

    • Authors: Sagung Putri M.E Purwani
      Abstract: This study aims to analyze law enforcement in the criminal justice system based on the value of restorative justice. The problem is the approach used in criminal law enforcement is mostly still giving a deterrent effect and conventionally imposing the law itself. The ideal law enforcement has to be supported by awareness of the role of punishment as a social sub-system, community’s influence is quite significant in efforts to enforce the law. The efforts to develop law enforcement with the concept of restorative justice are the ones that are directed at reforming criminal law in Indonesia. This research was conducted to identify how restorative justice is regulated in law enforcement that is centered on recovering the crime victims from the losses and suffering they undergo. This is interesting to study through the concept of restorative justice-based law enforcement. The research method is normative jurisdiction with the approach of the rule of law and the concept approach. The results of the research show that restorative justice has not been maximally used as a basis for consideration and a center for law enforcement because it focuses more on retaliation for criminals over the crimes they have committed. The value of restorative justice is specifically limited to the punishment of children, which is regulated in Act Number 11 of 2012 concerning the Criminal Justice System for Children. In other words, the law enforcement has not been satisfying because one of its objectives is recovery of victims. Keywords: Law Enforcement, Restorative Justice, Criminal Law

  • International Responsibility of the State for the Violation of
           International Military and Security Companies under the Rules of
           International Law

    • Authors: Ayman Abu-alhaj
      Abstract: The significance of this study stems from shedding light on the nature of the country’s responsibility based on the acts of private military and security companies through the description of the staff of companies. This, however, in turn determines the referral of their acts or not to the countries that are parties to the armed conflicts. It also results to the consequence of the international responsibility of the country and the impacts of this responsibility. This study focuses on clarifying the concept of international responsibility of countries, determine the legal basis for this responsibility, identify the legal nature of the private military and security companies, and search for the legal rules governing them. This helps in determining the nature of their work and the reflection of these acts based on the extent of the official international responsibility for the contracted countries. It also seeks to identify the differentiation and the difference in the responsibility of the country based on the description of private military and security companies’ staff. This is because they are a formation of their armed forces or they were not described as this. Also, the case of the responsibility of the country for the committed violations by persons or private groups was recognized by the country and was adopted as behaviors issued by it. In spite of that, this study will focus on the nature of the responsibility of the concerned country based on the referral of the acts of the staff of these companies or not as a self-assigned responsibility. In other words, there is an image to adapt the responsibility of the country in the case of the conditions available for the staff of these companies such as mercenaries, combatants, or civilians.The study concludes that there is a clear legal deficiency in the rules of international law whereas legal rules do not contain any legal provisions that deal with the responsibility of these companies regarding any violation committed during the course of their work and their military services in the conflict zones. Hence,  many States have needed these companies to avoid the international responsibilities in case of the violation of international humanitarian law.

  • Environmental Assessment Law and Practice in Nigeria Towards Achieving the
           UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) in the Country: Cases of SDGs 13
           and 17

    • Authors: Edward T. Bristol-Alagbariya
      Abstract: Environmental Assessment (EA) is an environmental protection, generic environmental governance and good governance tool by which the consequences of natural processes and human activities on the environment are predicted and evaluated, to minimise adverse consequences of proposed development project-proposals and maximise positive consequences of the proposals, in order to ensure qualitative environment and social equity, so as to achieve Sustainable Development (SD). Thus, by its inherent nature, EA promotes beneficial environment, by protecting and managing the environment, and contributing to SD and thus the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) in sovereign states, especially developing countries like Nigeria, which are richly endowed with major natural resources but plagued by the resource-curse. Particularly, based on life-cycle assessment and strategic environmental assessment, EA, has the potential to address the ongoing global problem and challenge of climate change, by contributing to improved environmental protection and management of life-cycle development projects, especially major natural resources extractive industrial development projects, in resources-rich global states like Nigeria. This paper demonstrates how EA in the form of life-cycle development projects-level assessment (Environmental Impact Assessment) and Strategic Environmental Assessment in Nigeria can promote the objectives of the EA process and practice, towards achieving informed environmental decision-making, high environmental quality and social equity and high-profile benchmarked business responsibility and sustainability practices, in the effort towards SD and thus the achievement of UNSDGs, particularly Goals 13 and 17 of the UNSDGs (respectively captioned ‘Climate Action’ and ‘Partnerships for the Goals’) in the country. Keywords: Environmental Assessment (EA), Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), Extractive Industrial Operations (EIOs), Petroleum Development Projects, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Government Social Responsibility (GSR), Good Environmental Governance (GEG), Sustainable Development (SD) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).

  • Duties in Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Wealth and Resources and
           Petroleum Development in Nigeria: Towards Efficient Government
           Institutions and Greater Social Responsibility in the Country

    • Authors: Edward T. Bristol-Alagbariya
      Abstract: A previous study of the author on the need to domesticate benchmarked international standards and practices associated with Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Wealth and Resources (PSNWR) in Nigeria, in the course of petroleum and other extractive industrial operations, as aspects of PSNWR, ended by stating that a follow-up study would be embarked upon. That follow-up study would, on the premise of actual performances and/or performance indicators of relevant government institutions established on the basis of their respective enabling laws, examine the efficacy of these institutions and overall government social responsibility (GSR) associated with petroleum development in the country. From the background of global and other benchmarked international sustainable development-oriented regulatory standards and practices and existing Nigerian legal and institutional frameworks associated with PSNWR, the study evaluates the effectiveness of laws and government institutions in the context of the significant and inevitable roles of governments, in the course of petroleum development in Nigeria. Keywords: Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Wealth and Resources (PSNWR), Petroleum Development Operations, Government Social Responsibility (GSR), Good Governance (GG) and Sustainable Development (SD).

  • Duties in Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Wealth and Resources and
           Petroleum Development in Nigeria: Need to Domesticate Benchmarked
           International Standards and Practices in the Country

    • Authors: Edward T. Bristol-Alagbariya
      Abstract: This paper examines the duties of resources-rich developing countries inherent in Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Wealth and Resources (PSNWR) in the context of the laws and other forms of government regulatory frameworks, such as government institutional regulatory frameworks, governing petroleum development in Nigeria. It emphasises the significance of good, dynamic and effective laws, alongside viable, strong and efficient institutions in the governance of major natural resources extractive industrial development operations (EIOs) in Nigeria. It rationalises how and why petroleum and other EIOs regulatory frameworks in Nigeria should be designed and implemented in conformity with widely acknowledged and accepted benchmarked international EIOs regulatory mechanisms, such as guidelines, norms, rules, standards and practices, which are soft law instruments that are increasingly governing EIOs in sovereign states around the globe, in the ongoing era of sustainable development (SD). It recommends a need for domestication of such regulatory mechanisms governing petroleum resources development operations and other EIOs in Nigeria, as doing so would boost good environmental governance and overall government social responsibility, towards robust, efficient and effective accomplishment of the duties of Nigeria embedded in PSNWR, in the course of the resources development operations in the oil-rich Niger Delta region. Doing so would thus boost human wellbeing, good governance and environmentally-sound and socio-economically equitable SD in Nigeria, towards overall public good and all-embracing prosperity in the country. Keywords: Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Wealth and Resources (PSNWR), Petroleum Development, Extractive Industrial Operations (EIOs), Good Environmental Governance (GEG), Government Social Responsibility (GSR), Good Governance and Sustainable Development (SD).

  • Protecting the Rights of Children in the Indonesian Juvenile Justice
           System

    • Authors: Julianto Asis; Muhammad Irwan
      Abstract: Delinquency rate of children every year always increases, if we look closely at the development of criminal acts committed by children so far, both in terms of quality and modus operandi. The research is an empirical legal research or commonly called as socio-legal research. It was conducted at Mamuju district, West Sulawesi, Indonesia. The results show that the implementation of the children rights’ protection in the process of juvenile criminal justice has been going well, although there are still rights of the children that have not been fully fulfilled. Such as the right to be free from torture, punishment or other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, not being arrested, detained or imprisoned. The process of juvenile criminal justice is not fully running smoothly, because in practice several obstacles are encountered. These obstacles include: the lack of understanding from law enforcement officials regarding child protection, limited number of juvenile judges or judges specializing in child criminal cases, many courts still do not have a special courtroom for juvenile court trial, the lack of defendant’s knowledge of the rights owned, there is no place to child custody or a Penitentiary for Children, so that child custody must be joined with adult in the sense that child custody with adult prisoners is not separated so that it can adversely affect child custody.

  • The Position of Honorary Council of Notary in Coaching Indonesian Notaries

    • Authors: Hatta Isnaini Wahyu Utomo; Slamet Suhartono, Moch. Isnaeni
      Abstract: The Honorary Council of Notary is formed by the Ministry in which its function is to develop notarial skills in performing their duty. As the part of state administration department, all acts are representing the state.. All government actions (bestuurshandelingen) must be based on a clear legal basis (legality). Procedure errors carried out by the Honorary Council of Notary in granting permission to take Minuta deed and to call a Notary still occur due to a lack of understanding in regard to the nature tasks of the Notary Honorary Council. The present study examines about the philosophical foundation of the Honorary Council of Notary.

  • Re-conception of Government’s Role in Implementing Telecommunication
           in Digital Era

    • Authors: Abdul Karim, I Nyoman Nurjaya, Istislam ; Moh. Fadli
      Abstract: Telecommunication is governed in Law Number 36 of 1999 concerning Telecommunication specifically related to the authority to implement telecommunication, where it regulates that the private sectors are assigned as implementers while the government serves as a supervisor. These divided roles seem no longer relevant to the present condition, in which there are gaps in the distribution of telecommunication network. On the contrary, telecommunication is initially aimed to fairly and evenly distribute welfare to the people. Liberalization of telecommunication that has taken place since 2000 is a policy that embarks from politics because Indonesia is committed to World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement to liberalize telecommunication. Moreover, Indonesia faces suppression from International Monetary Fund (IMF) regarding the funding given by the IMF to recover the Indonesian economy following economic crisis back in 1998. This condition triggered the country to liberalize telecommunication while this sector is considered as of important production sectors controlled by the state and for the welfare of the people. This control is supposed to exist through the direct role of the government in the implementation. The challenge Indonesia is facing these days regarding strategic telecommunication is the development of digital economy and fulfillment of right to access to information owned by the citizens as mandated by the Constitution. Keywords: government, implementation, telecommunication.

  • The Impact of Human Population on Biodiversity Conservation in Nigeria:
           The Need for Legal Intervention

    • Authors: Nelson Uwoh Sobere; Agent Benjamin Ihua-Madunenyi
      Abstract: All over the world, human population size and growth have been forecast as a chief driver of biodiversity loss with no exception to Nigeria. Nigeria is universally known for its biodiversity of national and international importance but at the same time affected by its growing population. The Nigerian population is projected to grow above 195, 905, 783 by the middle of the century.  No doubt, the health of the ecosystem has been irreversibly affected by the often quest to exploit the environment to meet the daily needs of the growing population. There is now more pressure on the components of biodiversity than ever before necessitated by the corresponding demand by humans. It is majorly human activities associated with population growth that cause the loss of biodiversity. Nigeria appears to have population control policy regulating the family size as per the number of children a household is expected to have but the policy appears to be voluntary and ineffective. Thus, there is the urgent need to slow down the population not only to reduce the pressure on biodiversity but also to ensure sustainable use of biodiversity for the benefit of the present and future generations. Therefore, this work seeks to examine the links between population growth and biodiversity conservation in Nigeria and the need to have an extant law to control the growing population. It makes far reaching recommendations which include the integration of family planning into biodiversity conservation. It also recommended that a legal regime should be put in place to regulate the family size of individual household with social and economic incentives outside population control policy that has no legal sanction. Keywords: Impact, Population, Biodiversity, Conservation, Legal Intervention

           Children's Constitutional Rights Perspective

    • Authors: Wahdah Zainal Imam

  • Philosophical Review of State's Sovereignty in The Sea On Foreign
           Cross-Ship Rights in Indonesia Waters

    • Authors: Bambang Wahyudi; I Nyoman Nurjaya, Prija Djatmika, Dhiana Puspitawati
      Abstract: The purpose of this research is to find out the statutory arrangements and philosophical review of state sovereignty related to foreign ship rights in the waters of the Indonesian Archipelago. This research is a normative legal research with a statutory approach. The analytical technique used is the analytic critique analysis technique in the form of a critical interpretation technique for legal materials, especially legal materials. The results show that in relation to PP No. 37/2002, the determination of the archipelagic sea lane should refer to Law No. 6/1996 and Article 53 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) 1982. In a philosophical review of the ontology aspects of sovereignty as the highest authority from a country in international law has experienced a shift. The highest power has shifted to a more limited direction, namely only within the national borders, while to get out of national borders is given and limited by international law. The epistemological aspect of state sovereignty in the archipelago waters is the same as in the territorial sea, that is, it cannot apply absolute sovereignty as in land area or in the air. Determination of the Indonesian Archipelagic Sea Lane (ALKI) will partly complicate the supervision of foreign vessels in unspecified sea lanes. This raises vulnerability for the sovereignty of the Indonesian state. The axiological aspect of state sovereignty is to bring benefits to create order and legal certainty related to the issue of the rights of foreign ships and aircraft crossing over vast waters based on the rights of archipelagic sea lanes crossing. In the perspective of the country's sovereignty especially the sovereignty of the state at sea, the determination of the right of passage for foreign vessels in the ALKI must guarantee territorial integrity and aim at protecting the wealth of the Indonesian state as an archipelago, according to the values ​​contained in the 1957 Djuanda Declaration. Keywords: Philosophical review, Right of Pass, Foreign Ships, Waters, Indonesian Archipelagic Sea Pathways (ALKI).
