provisions as in Article 143 of the Criminal Procedure Code. If we pay attention

specifically regulates how to determine the place where a criminal event occurs
(locus delicti), thus it is difficult for law enforcement officials to determine which
criminal law applies to people. who commits a crime in his country or outside his
country of origin to solve the problem or case. Second, the efforts made in
determining the Locus Delicti in the case of the crime of authentic forgery have
not been firm. This can be seen when Azhari explains that in fact the case
