Abstract

Indonesia, as the member of international community, is demanded to establish mechanisms to prosecute and punish individuals who commit the most serious violations of humanitarian law, termed war crime, in its national legislation. Punishment of war criminals has obligatory character so that Indonesia has the obligation to exercise its criminal jurisdiction to it. Although the laws of war had existed since the tribal war in Nusantara (Indonesia), the existing laws have not given adequate rules for prosecuting of war crimes so that it contributes to the occurrence of some impunities. By the time of the establishment of an independent state in 1945, Indonesia had committed to humanity with the qualification of just and civilized, having national and international dimension. The external dimension is the willingness to achieve the world peace and justice, and the internal dimension is the willingness to respect human rights in any conditions, peace and war. Keywords— National Legislation, Indonesia, War Crimes.
