Many legal and political events this year can be both learning and homework in the face of 2019, starting from legislative, executive and judicial powers. This is important because in 2019, Indonesia faces a political year. Reflections on law enforcement are important in order to form better expectations in the future.

Taman Siswa No. 158, Yogyakarta.

Dean of the Faculty of Law UII, Dr. Abdul Jamil, SH., MH., Said that one of the reasons for holding a year-end reflection program was because there were still many problems in law enforcement cases in Indonesia.

“Data from the Ombudsman of the Republic of Indonesia that throughout the year there are approximately 600 cases related to law enforcement, this figure is very extraordinary for us, so it is important for us to reflect together as our self-evaluation with the aim of law enforcement in 2019 better than the year this, “he said.

While Chair of the Judicial Commission of the Republic of Indonesia for the 2013-2015 period, Dr. Suparman Marzuki, SH., M.Sc., said that the state should be more serious in being present in building a civilization and for future law enforcement.
