Abstract

This research is a normative legal research. The approach method used in this research is normative juridical. This research is conducted with the study of documentation, namely collecting and researching of legal materials through a search of legal literature based on the act and the related law. This study aims to determine the urgency of whether the leaders of Indonesia's Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) should be given the Immunity Right in performing their duties. This is due to the many obstacles that hinder the Eradication of Corruption in Indonesia and the alleged criminalization addressed to the leadership of the Corruption Eradication Commission in performing. There are efforts from any parties who continue to encourage and want the KPK leaders to be established as a suspect. This can be politically as well as weakening the KPK institution, which currently plays an important role in eradicating corruption in Indonesia. Given the substance of Article 32 Paragraph (2) of Law Number 30 Year 2002 concerning Corruption Eradication Commission, the appointed leader becomes suspect will be temporarily discharged from his position in addition to performing his duties and functions collectively collegial with the stipulation of some KPK Leaders to be suspects will disrupt this institution in combating corruption. Indonesia as a legal state that upholds the principle of equality before the law and also considers that Indonesia is in an emergency of corruption, the application of limited immunity rights against the KPK Leaders guaranteed in a law is a good way. The eradication of corruption must remain focused so that objectives can be achieved immediately. The sincerity of these steps can be pursued by definite regulation of KPK's immunity right.
