Abstract

Indonesia is a sovereign country because the highest authority lies with the state. Indonesia consists of islands separated by sea, but they become a single unit that cannot be separated from one another. The West Papua region, which has been the territory of Indonesia, is an integrated and inseparable part of other regions, such as the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia. The TNI, as a national defense tool, is at the forefront in defending, defending, and securing Indonesia's entire territory from various foreign and domestic threats. The Armed Criminal Group (KKB) is legally illegal or illegal to exist. KKB is a separatist group that wants to find a political stage to gain popularity and sympathy from the international world. Of course, this separatist group cannot develop and grow in Indonesia's native land, especially in the Papua region. The TNI needs to exercise special authority on a predetermined legal basis so that the TNI is more flexible in acting in a measurable and accountable manner both as a child of the nation and as a main component in defending the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia. A fact that cannot be ignored is the large number of TNI victims from the KKB's actions in Papua. Based on this, it is time to consider strengthening the authority of the TNI by implementing clear and directed legal provisions to overcome the threat of the KKB in Papua.
