Abstract: – Law enforcement officers should always contribute to combate criminal acts, especially money laundering. One of the law enforcement’s participation is enforcing current applicable law in order to achieve the objective of the law itself. One of the actions of law enforcers especially in deciding a money laundering criminal case is by dropping a criminal to the defendant. The result of the verdict by the Panel of Judges then the Prosecutor as the executor working with the Correctional Institution in carrying out the criminal should get more attention because there is no point in the decision issued by the Panel of Judges without any maximum implementation. In terms of the sanctions, the imposition of criminal sanctions on the crime of money laundering as an extraordinary crime at least provide a deterrent effect for the perpetrators who commit money laundering crime. However, the current reality of money laundering crimes stemming from corruption did not provide a deterrent effect to the perpetrators of criminal acts. the increasingly widespread crime of money laundering derived from criminal corruption perpetrated by state officials shows that there is no clarity whether or not the confiction given to the perpetartors of money laundering is effective.
