Abstract

The purpose of this study is to find out the Criminal Law aspects of forcibly taking the corpse of suspect/
probable Covid-19 patients in Hospitals. Efforts to forcibly taking the corpse of suspect/probable Covid-19
patients by family continue to occur in a number of areas, often by mobilizing masses. Hundreds of people
came to the hospital to forcibly taking the corpse of Covid-19 patients who had just died. There are so
many cases of forcibly taking the corpse of suspect/probable Covid-19 patients that have occurred in
Indonesia, but no legal action has been taken by law enforcement officials to take action against and detain
the perpetrators of forcibly taking the corpse of suspect/probable Covid-19 patients. This caused the absence
of legal certainty, both legal protections for the Hospital and for the patient’s family.
