This edition of ICLU discusses the regulation in Indonesia regarding the Death penalty in the new Criminal Code, Law No. 1 of 2023. The death penalty provisions in the New Criminal Code provide more mitigating for defendants when compared to the current Criminal Code because the death penalty in the New Criminal Code is no longer categorized as a main criminal punishment but a special punishment. The death penalty in the new Criminal Code is automatically imposed with ten years probation and then subject to commutation assessment to life imprisonment. After the sentence, execution must be delayed.
