Abstract


The legal identify in the original version of Indonesia has been camouflaged by the
hegemony of the Western legal opinion that tends to be legalistic and formalistic in
nature and to have liberal spirits. At present, the legal society is stunned by the
phenomenon that they should accept a modern law that as if it has been fallen from the
sky. Law is the crystallization of the society‟s morality, values, and identity. Law is
values that are born from the earth the people step on, therefore, it does not suddenly
fall from the sky and should be accepted by all levels of society. It is high time to purify
the national legal identity by placing the customary law and its layers of instruments as
a value that will influence the content of the positive law. The Banyu Roto‟s pledge, as a
value and customary law prevailed among the Tengger tribe, is the value and norm
serving as the daily life guidance in order to maintain the balance of the Tengger
society. Therefore, a national criminal reform with an orientation to maintain and
restore the condition and order may be made. This present article will try to answer the
2
following questions: first, what is the meeting point/convergence between Banyu Roto‟s
Pledge as a jural postulate and the aim of the Crime in the revision of the Criminal Law
in the future? Second, what is the way of life (the value of the people in Tengger tribe)
dealing with the basic value contained in the Banyu Roto‟s pledge used to see the
criminalization of adultery outside marriage in Indonesia? A socio-legal research
method was employed in this present research.
