Abstract

The modus operandi of corruptors in conducting corrupt acts uses codes as a tool to fool people around them. The cipher language they use develops according to the technological advances they use in carrying out the action. The cipher language is found in open court trials of corruption from witness statements, suspects in answering questions from judges, prosecutors and legal counsel. Cipher language research used by corruptors uses the forensic linguistic approach as a study of language in the realm of law. This research uses descriptive and qualitative observational method. The purpose of this study is to find the codes used by corruptors in carrying out corrupt practices. The benefits of this research as a contribution to the community in order not to commit acts of corruption. The references used in this study are Gibbons 2003, Gerald R. McMenamin 2002, Malcolm Coulthard and Alison Johnson 2007.
