Cheating in the eyes of Criminal Law

The term infidelity itself is not regulated in Law Number 1 of 2023 concerning the Criminal Code (KUHP), but the Criminal Code prohibits acts of adultery and cohabitation or what is often referred to as cohabitation.

The provisions for adultery are regulated in Article 411 of the Criminal Code, with the threat of a sentence of one year in prison and a category II fine of IDR 10 million, as regulated in Article 79 of the Criminal Code.

Meanwhile, the prohibition on cohabitation itself is in Article 412 of the Criminal Code, which carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a maximum fine of IDR 10 million.

These two articles emphasize that the crimes of adultery and cohabitation are complaint offenses, which means that they can only be prosecuted if there is a complaint from the husband or wife of a person who is married. However, parents or children can also report it. This complaint can also be withdrawn as long as the trial examination has not yet begun.
