Analysis of a Criminologist Regarding Human Trafficking as An Extraordinary Crime

Poppy Andi Lolo


This study aims to reconstruct the crime of human trafficking which is a remarkable social fact through criminological analysis as part of a criminal policy. It employs the empirical legal research approach (non-doctrinal). Data was obtained from primary (interviews and questionnaires) and secondary (documentation) sources. Lawyers, judges, correctional institutions and NGOs served as respondents. Criminological analysis and argumentation techniques and theories of criminology were used. This study discusses the legislations governing the crime of trafficking in persons in Indonesia. It deals with the formation of criminal acts, criminal responsibilities, and the maximum sanctions. Apart from increasing crime and victimization, decadence and the erosion of societal values and norms are now prevalent.  This study suggests that all statutory provisions which prohibit such crimes should be strengthened and that the crime of trafficking in persons be treated as an extraordinary crime. In addition, law enforcement officers should apply the maximum sanctions for criminal offences to serve as a deterrent to others.

Keywords: Criminologist; Human Trafficking; Extraordinary Crime.
