Strengthening Criminal Policy to Create Justice-based Legal Certainty for Suspect in Corruption Case
Yuspar, Prof Dr Ediwarman

This work is aimed at exploring and finding an appropriate strategy for strengthening a criminal policy to create a Justice-based Legal Certainty for suspect in corruption case. This research is highly relevant as the backlog of corruption cases in legal enforcement in the prosecution office. Certainly, this backlog may deteriorate not only legal certainty, but also performance and reputation of the State, i.e. prosecutors, in protecting the suspects’ rights as a part of the fundamental human rights, regulated under Indonesian 1945 Constitution, article 28. Therefore, this research will be focused on legal techniques in embodying some ideal values to create and strengthen institutional integrity, such as justice, legal certainty, properness, transparency, accountability, responsibility, human rights and so forth. Those values should be embodied into practical level, particularly at investigation, and charge level. To visualize those ideas, this research will apply normative legal research, by using statue and case approaches. All data will be collected through intensive and extensive literature review. In the end, this work offers an ideal model for strengthening a criminal policy that simplifies the completion of corruption cases in order to arrive at a justice-based legal certainty for suspects in the corruption case.
