  • Limiting the Legality of Determining Suspects in Indonesia Pre-Trial

    • Authors: I Gede Widhiana Suarda, Moch. Marsa Taufiqurrohman, Zaki Priambudi
      Abstract: This article aims to examine what the pre-trial judges consider in determining suspects. The basis of the reason "not based on the provisions and legal procedures in force" is a pre-trial petition. Including examining whether the Notification Letter for the Commencement of Investigation has not been submitted to the Reported Party and the Reporting Party, it can be used as a basis for the judge's consideration to judge the legality of the determination of the suspect. This article uses a legal research method through a statutory, conceptual, and case approach. This article finds that after the issuance of the Constitutional Court Decision Number 21 / PUU-XII / 2014 and the Supreme Court Regulation Number 4 of 2016, the fulfillment of preliminary evidence, namely that two valid pieces of evidence constitute the absolute standard of determining the suspect. Besides, in terms of proof, pre-trial only assesses the validity of formal aspects, which incidentally do not touch the case's subject matter. An application for the cancellation of a suspect's status, for whatever reason, cannot be granted as long as the initial evidence is not fulfilled, namely the two pieces of evidence listed in Article 184 paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code (KUHAP). Ultimately, this study recommends the need for affirmation in determining a suspect through the Draft Criminal Procedure Code to achieve legal certainty and fulfillment of the suspect's human rights.

  • Simple, Speedy, and Low Cost Trial : A Panacea For Corruption in

    • Authors: Topo Santoso, Febby Mutiara Nelson
      Abstract: This article discusses whether simple, speedy and low cost principles have been implemented in the criminal justice in Indonesia and the obstacles faced by the Indonesian criminal justice system, especially in terms of returning state losses due to corruption cases. The findings indicate that such principles are yet to be effectively implemented in the criminal justice system in Indonesia. Some obvious issues have emerged as an area for attention; first, that law enforcement in corruption cases takes a long time, remains complicated, and is also high-priced. Second, there are a number of obstacles confronted by the Indonesian criminal justice system, especially in terms of returning state losses due to corruption that should be able to follow the concept of justice in a simple, speedy manner and at low cost.
