Sri Muryanto, Koesno Adi, Masruchin Ruba’i, Amiruddin .


Justice or just is actually an abstract feeling, but it is perceived as a real and visible matter by individuals or group. There is neither perfect justice nor pure nor sure, except the justice made by God the Almighty as the ruler of the universe.

This journal focuses on corruption which is a latent danger that needs special attention in its handling. Indonesia is a state law with Pancasila as its fundamental ideology giving full mandate to law enforcement officials to enforce the truth and justice.

To handle corruption cases, extraordinary measures are needed along with justice principle based on the Pancasila prioritizing the principle of equality before the law. There is not an exception on who the offender is and how the sentence is imposed.

The reason of why the writers write the journal of which tittle is “The Principle of Justice in the Sentencing of Corruption Offenders” is that the we would like to establish an unbeatable theory that  the sentencing on the corruption offender is not merely about the maximum sentence that can be applied proportionally, but also an effort to create proportional justice for all parties without hurting the heart of the public and this is aimed at avoiding extreme disparity in the application of laws in the judges’ verdicts on cases with similar legal violations.
