The principle of innocence presumption is presumed only for and applicable to activities relating to the criminal justice process. So there is a lack of concern for the community towards the principle. The principle of innocence presumption in Indonesia was previously contained in Article 8 of Law no. 14 of 1970 on the Basic Provisions of Judicial Power. Although it does not explicitly state the same, the principle was articulated in Article 66 of Law No.8 Year 1981 on the Criminal Procedure Code (KUHAP).Law enforcement is one of the efforts to create order, security and peace in society, whether it is a preventive effort or is the eradication or repression after the violation of law. To achieve these targets, the legislation should be the legal basis for the actions and actions of law enforcers to be in accordance with the basic philosophy of the state and the Indonesian life view of Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution (1945 Constitution). Thus, the need for a reconceptualization of the interpretation of the presumption of innocence principle adopted by the Criminal Procedure Code.
