Abstract


Toward a Progressive Public Prosecutor’s Office: a Study on Investigation, Prosecution and Adjudication of Criminal Acts of Corruption (The Book) is one of the reliable resources in capturing the real picture of Indonesian Law Enforcement Institution–namely Attorney General Offices (AGO)– for its centralistic bureaucracy nature. Written by Dr. Yudi Kristiana, S.H., M.Hum. (Yudi), the idea of The Book came in reaction to ‘the-never-ending’ corruption phenomenon, its massive impacts and the underlying problems to eradicate corruption. Choosing one of the important stake holder to fight corruption, The Book is providing several reasons why the AGO seems not fully-functioned and successful in serving the justice for the state. The (allegedly) fault mainly lies upon AGO’s conventional case-handling methods, which in general is bureaucratic and centralistic and adopts hierarchical accountability and the command system.
