The Role of Penal Mediation to Resolve Criminal Acts that Cause Harms to Others in Indonesian Military Court

Author(s): Koerniawaty Sjarif

In the settlement of criminal cases, usually judges impose criminal conviction against the perpetrator. This usual process is philosophically sometimes not satisfying all parties. Therefore it is necessary to have a criminal case settlement outside judicial process in order to resolve the conflict between the perpetrator and the victim. In the context of military courts, penal mediation has not yet been implemented considering that it has not been regulated in Law No. 31 Year 1997 on Military Court. By using normative legal research methods, this study will examine the possibility of applying penal mediation in military justice mechanisms in Indonesia.
