Abstract

Corruption criminal act is considered as an extraordinary crime. Combating and eradicating it will not be significantly successful if it is carried out only by law enforcement, bureaucracy, and KPK (Corruption Eradication Committee); people, especially families also play their important role in preventing anyone from committing corruption criminal act through local cultural wisdom because it has been instilled since one is born. The concept of noble values of the Simalungunese belief in Habonaron do Bona contain the doctrines of Divinity, man, nature, and tenets which organize the relationship between man and God, man and man, and man and nature. It also teaches him how to be credible in his spirit, mentality, and behavior, to take responsibility, to never give up, to be ready to sacrifice for his country and his fellowman, to work hard, to be tough, to persevere, to be fond of doing social activity, to get ready to help solve other people’s problems, and to be law abiding. The research used Research and Development method with descriptive sociological approach on local wisdom in Habonaron do Bona concerning preventing the Simalungunese community from committing corruption criminal act. The result of the field research showed that Habonaron do Bona had not yet been implemented by the Simangulunese community which could be proved from numerous corruption criminal acts committed by their authorities.
