Police Inspector General Argo Yuwono said that his team is formulating Police Regulation on regulating restorative justice in the Bhayangkara Corps related to this approach. “We will formulate the police regulations related to restorative justice implementations in handling criminal offences”, Chief of Public Relations and Press Division of Indonesian National Police said.

Chief of Public Relations and Press Division also added that this restorative approach is already implemented in several cases across Indonesia. For example, several cases in General Criminal Offences Directorate, Special Economic Criminal Offences Directorate, and Cyber Criminal Offences Directorate under the Criminal Investigation Agency have solved through restorative justice.

That action can be solved using restorative justice. That will not be a problem”, the Chief of Public Relations and Press Division said.
