Abstract

Corruption is a criminal act that is considered to be very detrimental to the state. The impact of these criminal acts is not only felt by the state as the administrator of government, but also has an impact on the wider community. According to Article 1 of Law no. 20 of 2002, death row inmates can apply for clemency to the President to have their sentences reduced, which usually takes the form of life imprisonment or have their sentences abolished. The death penalty in the implementation process invites debate, many opinions agree that the death penalty should be maintained, and there are also those who reject the existence of the death penalty. This type of research is Normative research. The approach used is a statutory approach and a conceptual approach. The data source used is secondary data. Data analysis was carried out descriptively qualitatively. Conclusions are carried out using a deductive method, namely concluding from general to specific matters, especially those related to the topic of the Application of the Death Penalty in Efforts to Eradicate Corruption Crimes. This research produces findings from various aspects that should build community welfare in the form of infrastructure development and installation design to support the lives of many people. The death penalty in Indonesia is applied based on Article 10 of the Criminal Code.
