Fuad Nur, M. Syukri Akub, M. Said Karim, Syamsuddin Muchtar


The phenomenon of trafficking in persons in Indonesia today is in alarming conditions. Apart from being a source of trafficking in people who are widely exploited abroad, Indonesia has also become an organized destination for trafficking in persons even with corporate involvement. The common forms of exploitation include forced labor or forced service, slavery and slavery-like practices. Forced labor or forced service is a working condition that arises through a method, plan or pattern intended so that someone is sure that if he does not do a certain job, then he or the person who is responsible will suffer both physically and psychologically. The right of citizens to avoid torture, slavery as happened in trafficking in persons is clearly regulated in Article 28I paragraph 1 of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia, and the law which specifically regulates the crime of trafficking in persons is Law No. 21 Year 2007 concerning Eradication of Crime in Trafficking in Persons.
