The Urgency of Judge Integrity in Implementation of Law Enforcement and Justice in Indonesia

H. Abid, Edi Rohaedi


Integrity is one of the most important attributes that a judge must have. A judge with integrity means a judge who has an honest and a strong personality, a firm attitude in defending principles, does not want corruption and becomes an inherent basis for oneself as a moral value. In addition, the integrity of judges is also a quality, nature or condition that shows a unified whole, so that it has the potential and ability to exude authority for judges and judicial institutions. In addition to the integrity aspect that must be inherent in a judge, aspect of legislation is also very important. The integrity of judges and legislation are two closely related aspects, so that if one of these aspects is not good, then enforcing the law as one of the judges' duties to provide justice to the community will not be achieved.
