Criminal Code Bill Soon Passed; Govt Claims Public Aspirations Accommodated

5 December 2022 13:20 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Law and Human Rights Minister Yasonna Laoly on Monday asserts that the formulation of the criminal code draft bill or RKUHP has entirely accommodated public aspirations. This statement was made ahead of the official passing of the Draft Bill.

“It has been accommodated,” Laoly insisted as he attended a book launch by constitutional law expert Jimly Asshiddiqie at the judicial commission headquarters on December 5. 

The House of Representatives (DPR) legislators are planning to pass the criminal code bill as soon as Tuesday, December 6. However, the Minister was not able to confirm this.

“Let’s just see tomorrow. I assume it will be,” he said. 

Previously, the Commission III legislators together with the government represented by Deputy Minister of Law and Human Rights Edward Omar Sharif Hiariej agreed that the RKUHP would be continued in the next discussion to be passed into law at the nearest House plenary session.

On that occasion, Edward said that the ratification of the RKUHP into law is expected to be the foundation stone for building the Indonesian national criminal law system. Apart from that, he added, the RKUHP is also expected to be able to strip away the colonial heritage of the existing RKUHP.
