Abstract

Economists, diplomats, and other experts frequently wonder why investigators and prosecutors are not more effective in catching and convicting corrupt officials in many developing nations. One reason is that investigators and prosecutors often do not have the authority to engage in the sort of tactics needed to tackle the unique challenges posed by complex public corruption cases. This Article offers key criminal procedure reforms to aid Indonesia and other nations.

Keywords: Criminal Procedure Reforms, Public Corruption, Indonesia
