ICLaD Issue No.1/2014

This edition of ICLaD will explore and highlight two important matters on criminal law reform, namely: draft of Indonesian Criminal Code (Kitab Undang-Undang Hukum Pidana – KUHP) and draft of Indonesian Criminal Procedural Law (Kitab Undang-Undang Hukum Acara Pidana – KUHAP). These two subjects are presented to depict a comprehensive scope of provision of the draft KUHP and KUHAP, as well as the significant consequences should the drafts are enforced.

It is a one-way ticket. To establish a human-rights-oriented of criminal law and criminal justice system, Indonesia requires a new set of criminal law and criminal justice system that uphold human rights principles.

We wish the elaboration presented in the edition of ICLaD would provide a better insight on the current situation in Indonesia.
