The law enforcement practices on corruption cases by the heads of villages in Indonesia
Adi Nugraha, Widodo Tresno Novianto, Agus Riwanto
The increase in criminal acts of corruption in Indonesia provides significant opportunities for the government and the community to continue to work together and join hands in fighting the corruption. This corruption has become an acute disease in this country. It takes hard work and seriousness against it. In the midst of the large amount of budget allocated for the management of village funds, the state is faced with rampant corruption problems at the village level. In addition, the practice of law enforcement on corruption cases committed by the village heads is still quite weak compared to the number of corruption cases committed by the village heads even though the judge has decided on some corrupt practices carried out by the village head as happened in Surabaya District Court ruling with number: 66/ Pid.SUS-Tpk/ PN.Sby.
