Apart from that, the retributive justice paradigm which is repressive has changed into a punishment paradigm based on restorative justice. This can be seen in the formulation of the New Criminal Code Bill, one of which is the criminal supervision, the criminal supervision is an alternative crime of conditional deprivation of liberty. The concept of criminal supervision in the Draft Criminal Code is currently still general, so it is necessary to formulate an Ius Kontituendum policy for the concept of criminal supervision in Indonesia, such as the criminal supervision procedure for supervision has not been explained in detail, so it must be conceptualized early on, so that the implementation of criminal supervision can run effectively.
