Abstract


Corruption has been in existence since the human history began. Such practice is rife not
only among commoners in the society but also among law enforcers. Some measures have
been taken to prevent corruption from occurring among law enforcers; one of which is
tight selection when recruiting in-service judges or justices and other law enforcers.
Indonesian Judicial Commission which is in charge of this selection process proposes and
submits three times the number of expected justices to the House of Representatives who
will then—from the names given—choose the appointed supreme court justice. It is
assumed that the appointed officer is the one who possesses solid integrity, is capable of
preventing corruption practices, and has the courage to give punishments to the
perpetrators of corruption. This research is normative in nature, applying literature-study
method, with history and statute approach. History has shown evident differences between
in-service judge selection process in the past and the one of today. There is clear
distinction between these two selection processes in terms of the candidates’ origin and
selection requirements. Prabu Hayam Wuruk has apparently laid the basis of supreme
court justice selection process to generate justice with high integrity. According to its
vision and mission, Judicial Commission is expected to perform well by—in this particular
matter—recruiting quality justices.
