Since the reform era, corruption has become a primary concern in the enforcement of the law in Indonesia. It has permeated all fields and sectors, including social services and non-ministerial government institutions responsible for security. The recent KPK arrests of the Head of Basarnas have caused a stir among the public. This situation has triggered public anger following the KPK leadership's apology for not coordinating with Puspom TNI following criticism from them. However, the 2019 Law No. 19 grants authority to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to prevent and combat corruption. Therefore, the question arises as to who is authorized to enforce the law against corruption committed by the Indonesian National Army (TNI). How does the process of establishing connectivity between KPK and TNI in law enforcement regarding the TNI corruption case work? The TNI is deemed a legal subject of corruption in various legal provisions. Both the KPK and TNI are trusted to carry out various law enforcement efforts against corrupt activities committed by the TNI. However, it should be noted that the role of the KPK in cases of collusion is not clearly regulated, while the TNI is not clearly regulated in handling special criminal cases such as corruption.
