ABSTRACT. The death penalty for corruptors, gaining a place in Indonesia's
positive criminal law. As a country that makes Pancasila an ideology, it is
interesting to be reviewed in this paper on the existence of the death penalty for the
corruptor from a human rights perspective in Indonesia. Therefore, the author raised
two issues, namely the first, how is the death penalty for corruptors in Indonesia's
positive law? second, what about the death penalty for such corruptors if reviewed
from a Human Rights perspective in Indonesia? To answer this, the authors chose
legal research with a normative approach as part of its research methods. Based on
the study obtained that the death penalty for corruptors does not conflict with
Indonesian human rights values, because it is seen as the most serious crime. Even
the formulation of the death penalty is currently seen as in line with the direction
and ideals of reforming Indonesias criminal law, which is increasingly humanist
and puts forward the purpose of justice and benefit.
KEYWORDS. Death penalty, corruption, criminal law, human rights in Indonesia.
