Abstract

The purpose of writing an article is to review the opinion of the Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) regarding the death penalty for corruption perpetrators. At the 2012 National Deliberation (Mubes) and Grand Conference (Konbes), NU legal experts reached an agreement on allowing corruption offenders to be sentenced to death. Corruption is not categorized as hudud or kisas, but takzir. The legal opinion regarding the death penalty is permissible if it is the final sentence and is in accordance with the principles of maslahat. Articles written with a qualitative descriptive approach. The main data is the fatwa document from the 2012 meeting of the Mubes and Konbes NU. The data is processed, compiled with other supporting data, and analysis is carried out. The result of the research shows that ideological arguments about the permissibility of capital punishment for corruptors take the takzir way. The death penalty imposed on the perpetrators corruption is related to the law of hirabah. NU is of the opinion that the death penalty is expected to be a deterrent effect for anyone who practices corruption. This fatwa at least shows that NU is brave enough to take risks by looking for the basis of religious law arguments regarding the maximum punishment, and encourages government officials to have the courage to impose harsh penalties for corruption perpetrators.
