Abstract: This research reviews the essence of compensation concept as an additional penalty in the Indonesian criminal system as well as the extent of their impact on the effectiveness of financial indemnification of the state, and aims to provide an overview of the construction of the compensation concept in criminal law reform. The outcomes of the research indicate that there are the difference between perspective and point of view of the demands of the public prosecutor and the judge's decision concerning additional penalty for the compensation. The intention of the law makers to include additional criminal threats that everything is the same, namely in an effort to restore the country's financial losses arising out of the corruption cases. As it turns out in practice, however, it has certain weaknesses, particularly in view of the forming of criminal law which has no sticking to the principle, that adds to other criminal types on the types of crime that have been specified in the Indonesian Criminal Code it is forbidden. Therefore, to realize the main purpose of law enforcement concerning corruption case in order to save as much as possible the financial loss of the state, criminal compensation payments should be made as a "main penalty" not an "additional penalty". Based on such view, the compensation concept appears to be the ideal approach to be applied in the settlement of corruption cases.
