Envisioning Indonesian Criminal Code Reform: Challenges in Reforming Criminal System and Protecting Civil Liberties

The discussion on the Draft Bill on Criminal Code (RKUHP) for Indonesia is one of the most crucial events in Indonesia. This is the first time when the Government and the parliament are on the same table and try to formulate the single largest legislation after the Indonesia’s independence. RKUHP contains more articles than any legislation and also stipulates important materials that will govern the public.

The government and the parliament have agreed upon several things, and one of which was the 1,103 Inventory List of Issues (Daftar Inventarisasi Masalah – DIM), from the total of 2,394 DIMs. In other words, almost half of the RKUHP submitted by the government have been agreed by both sides.

The Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (ICJR) dan Lembaga Studi dan Advokasi Masyarakat (Elsam), as well as the National Alliance for Criminal Code Reform (Aliansi Nasional Reformasi KUHP) are maintaining the effort on the advocacy towards RKUHP discussion. Several measures have been taken, such as sending inputs to the government and the parliament, by providing another version of DIM.

In addition, the National Alliance also maintain the monitoring process to the whole process of RKUHP discussion. The results of the monitoring process are published on a dedicated website reformasikuhp.org that is available to the public.

The National Alliance views that the international community needs to be informed about the ongoing process of RKUHP discussion. With that in mind, this document is drafted as part of information dissemination regarding the current RKUHP discussion process.
