In the legal context, the regulation and mention of gratification have been known since the enactment of Law Number 20 of 2001 concerning Amendments to Law Number 31 of 1999 concerning Eradication of Criminal Acts of Corruption (UU Tipikor). The Anti-Corruption Law requires civil servants or state administrators to report every receipt of gratuities related to positions and contrary to their duties or obligations to the KPK. If the gratification that is considered a bribe (illicit/illegal gratification) is not reported to the KPK, there is a risk of criminal sanctions.
The Study on the Implementation of the Articles of Gratification In the Court's Decision tries to further discuss the existence of the articles of gratification, starting from the history of its formation, examining its elements, to its application in cases that have been processed through the courts. The preparation of the study was carried out by involving various expert resource persons who are competent in their fields, both through the process of focused group discussions, expert interviews, and holding expert meetings. Through this study, it is expected to support the application of the article on gratification in the law enforcement process and trigger the birth of other studies related to gratification.
