Political Crime Paradigm in Legal Perspective in Indonesia (Philosophical Juridical Studies in the View Point of Michel Foucalt)

Author(s): Subarsyah

 Politics is defined as a space to express aspirations, political manifestations are described as perfect crimes or political crimes that provide space to maintain continuous power relations. Indonesia has experienced political crimes in the New Order period, this study aims to explain political crimes from a legal perspective in Indonesia. The research method is qualitative with a juridical-philosophical approach and the source of information is validated by data triangulation techniques. The results of the study explain that political crimes in Indonesia are post-criminal and make the proposition of Pancasila to maintain continuous power so that the authoritarian regime is difficult to collapse, with Michel Foucault's model providing the possibility to normalize positivism to undermine the power and provide legal certainty for politics.
