Annotation: The aim of national development in Indonesia is to create a just and prosperous society both materially and spiritually; however, one aspect of national development has been the emergence of crimes new to Indonesian society.
Abstract: In the area of law, the program of national development has several objectives: to increase consciousness of law among the citizens, to develop a national discipline and sense of responsibility, to reform the law as needed, to provide legal aid and consultation to those who need them, and to develop citizens' rights and obligations. New areas of crime in Indonesia include crimes related to water territory and fisheries, homicide, computer crime, and security crimes. The government believes that crime prevention and offender treatment are linked to social and economic programs and improved education. Architectural designs and public information campaigns are two more tools in Indonesian crime prevention. The criminal code is based on "adat", or native law, as well as modern law dating from Dutch colonial rule. In addition to Federal courts, there are military and religious courts.
Main Term(s): Foreign criminal justice systems; Socioeconomic development
