Corruption is an extraordinary crime because it is committed by state officials, which has an enormous impact on the state’s losses. This also happened in Lampung Province; throughout 2017-2020, five regional heads (regents) were trapped. The regional leader who committed the act of corruption was dominated by gratification in which the pattern and mechanism used were almost the same, namely the receipt of project fees. The form of revenue for the fee mode is challenging to detect and prove because the receiving process tends to be complicated, involves many parties, and impacts huge state losses. Therefore, this article will comprehensively analyze the acts of corruption in Lampung Province, the patterns and mechanisms that regional heads use, and an assessment of the incurred state losses. So to analyze it, a normative approach will be used based on relevant legal materials.
