In this activity, Dr. Surastini Fitriasih, SH, MH stated that the advantage of the new Criminal Code as criminal law and a modern criminal system is that it starts from the principle of balance and is able to accommodate local wisdom.

“The Rationale of the provisions of the Criminal Code regarding Crime and Punishment views that Retributive / Retaliation / Lex Talionis had to be left behind. Local wisdom needs to have a place to explore traditional values,” said Dr. Surastini on Monday (30/1)

Prof. Marcus further explained that if there is a conflict between justice and legal certainty, then justice must be prioritized.

“Every citizen has the right to obtain fair legal certainty. The principle is not legal certainty according to law but legal certainty according to justice. Other criminal legislation must refer to the first book of the Criminal Code.” explained Prof. Marcus.
