Honorable adjudicators and happy audience.

Definition: Corruption means the abuse of legal power by government official for immoral
private gain. It is well-known done with tendency towards the benefits for individual or group
interest. Corruption is prominently forbidden not only by law but also religion in Indonesia. That
teaches us about bad impact of doing negative things, like getting heavy punishment in the

Team line: Our time line is corruption causes mass destruction for peoples misery and it should
be stopped by death penalty to prevent other corruption.

Team split: The first speaker will deal with corruption regarded from law, the second speaker
speak about afford to prevent corruption by death penalty, and the third speaker talk about
exclusive law and court for the corruptor.

Arguments: Ladies and gentlemen. Here I agree with the motion stating that the corruptors must
get death penalty. There are some reasons why I can say this. Those can be looked upon some
point of views:
1.Regarded from law. Here I would like to give some reasons regarding law constitution. Ladies
and gentlemen. Based on constitution 1999 no. 31 article 2 stating that death penalty can be
executed in a certain condition and it is really a must to be done including fining death penalty
upon the corruptor. If the death penalty really be executed it will give a shock therapy for the
corruptor because all of corruptors will be afraid to do corruption again. Then the candidate of
new corruptor will think twice or maybe 3 times, 4 times, 5 times up to hundreds time to do
corruption because if they will perpetrate corruption they will get death penalty.
Ladies and gentlemen. When we are watching television, reading newspaper or listen to radio,
corruptor is mainly discussed as the hottest issue. This case are found everywhere, either in
countryside or big cities the corruptor can be whoever having a chance to do it. It can occur at all
levels of our society, such as from local and national government. Those are like the leader of
village, representative of citizen and up to the highest level. If the bad condition is not done soon
by firm sanction, what will happen with the country in the future ladies and gentlemen? Here the
firmest sanction for the corruptor they must get death penalty. If the corruptor gets only a
sentence in prison, they can still feel the freedom. For example: one of the corruptor in our
country has got a sentence in prison but he can still go anywhere, even in jail he got luxurious
facilities, like air conditioner, LCD player, and even they can go out of the prison. Please you
imagine what you feel? How about your feeling watching the reality that make us annoyed about
it? Do you will the people who has made our society misery, they get penalty that can be called
VIP punishment.
Ladies and gentlemen. Relating to this, it is better to give death penalty for the corruptor rather
than sentence in jail for some years or long life. Please well imagine with your logical thought, if
the corruptor get only sentence in jail or maybe long life, does it make our country lose, and it
does not give advantage for us and our country? Why I can say that ladies and gentlemen? For
example: if the corruptor is just in jail it of course our government will give meals for them.
They do not give our government advantage but make our government lose.
Ladies and gentlemen. As we all know that our country and government has afforded to
eliminate corruptor in our country, like government has formed a board such as Commission of
Corruption Eradication (KPK), even in all constitution had been contented about banning to
perpetrate corruption. But what had happened in our surroundings? There are still many
corruptors. They did not feel afraid of it. If our government just relax and give penalty in jail for
the corruptor how about our country in the future and for the next generation? There will be
corruptors everywhere, in the villages up to the big cities ladies and gentlemen. To avoid the
worst thing that will happen, our government must give a firm penalty that is death penalty for
the corruptor. So, we stand in this motion that corruptor must get death penalty.

Happy audience ladies and gentlemen.

Team line: Our time line is the corruptor has human right to live and government can use jail

Team split: The first speaker speak about the human right for the corruptor to live, the second
speaker talk about the chance for corruptor to back go the right way, and the third speaker speak
about the worst effect caused by death penalty.

Arguments: I disagree with the motion because there are some reasons why I disagree about it! It
can be regarded from various kind of field.
1.Regarded from human right.
2.Regarded from psychology of corruptor family.

Ladies and gentlemen. Here as the first speaker I will speak about human right. I think we all
know what human right is. Human right is right that adhere in everyones self since inside of
womb thats have a supreme and fundamental as the gift of God for long life and it cant be
claimed by whoever and it must be respected, be kept and must be protected by whoever social
or state. From the statement above it is really obvious that everybody, everyone has a human
right especially life right including for the corruptor. Corruptor is also an ordinary human. Like
me, like you, and like us. So, corruptor has human right to life as well, why corruptor should get
a death penalty ladies and gentlemen? Based on constitution of 1945 article 28 a about life right.
It is really obvious that it is contain about human right. So, relating to this if the death penalty
really be done. Wont it break human right? Where is the real of our government to protect the
society if the death penalty really be done? Ladies and gentlemen. We recognize that Indonesia is
even the house of corruptors. Many corruptors in Indonesia started by the most little levels up to
highest levels. But, I think to give penalty our government must not use a death penalty.
Actually, the corruptors are mostly smart person and have an outstanding education. But,
because of their intelligence is not be balanced by strong religion lesson. So that, finally they are
taken to do a corruption. And if all of them get a death penalty what will happen to our country?
Perhaps, citizen or resident in Indonesia is only a stupid person as the rest? If we wait the next
generation it is not sure will be better than the corruptor right now. Ladies and gentlemen. Now,
lets see the reality! We all know that manycorruptors in Indonesia who has known or have not
yet. Maybe the corruptor in Indonesia has reached 50% of official in our country and all of them
get a case of corruption. Please you imagine; if all of them get a death penalty. How about their
family fate? Perhaps they will be misery or maybe their family will be poor because they do not
have a spinal column to fulfill their needs. Will it increase the level of poverty in our country?
They will cry all night long who will take responsibilities to them? Our government? I think it is
not possible right? Ladies and gentlemen. Like what I say in my previous statement that actually
the corruptor mostly a smart people. If death penalty really be done it will reduce the intelligence
our government. So, relating to this I think a death penalty is not really important. Instead of
giving death penalty it is better if our government improve things for development our country.
And instead of their behavior maybe, perhaps our government can give the corruptors a penalty
as heavy as the lost that is caused of them. And it is not necessary get a death penalty. So, here
we are as the opposition we disagree with the motion. Thanks
2nd speaker

Rebuttal: Well, ladies and gentlemen. Here I am as the second speaker from government, I would
like to rebut some arguments from the opposition. Considering the statements from opposition
stating that corruptor should not get death penalty because of human right issue. They said that
the corruptor has right to life without anyone insulting the basic right that they have. Is that true?
Those are not the reason on how to make deal with the corruptor. They totally make a mass
destruction in our life. Poverty that actually can be reduced by funding from the government but
the corruptor steals it. In fact, they smoothly kill people by taking the money and flee away
towards the reasons going abroad for injure treatment. The government then cant arrest them or
even take them into the tribunal of law court.

Arguments: Ladies and gentlemen. We should understand clearly about the death penalty. This
means that people will not do corruption over and over because of afraid of death penalty. This is
the prevention and not the action for only murdering the corruptor with beheading sentence.
People will not do that even trying for once if they know that the result of robbing money from
the country is death. If we do not give death penalty so they think it does not matter stealing
money because they will get fine only for one and half year in the prison. After all, they can be
free with much money that they get it beforehand. Another reason on why we should fine the
corruptor with the death penalty. We can imagine that if we are sick in very bad condition then
the doctor will injure us with very intensive treatment. And if somebody badly injured, so they
will get in emergency treatment. It goes the same with corruption, if we do not treat as
emergency so it can cause deadly effect for those who are infected with the virus called
corruption. So ladies and gentlemen. The last statement is if we really want to make a change
and better life in our future. We should do it particularly starting from managing ourselves into
very good maintenance by eradicating corruption. Thus, we stand firmly in this motion that the
corruptor must get death penalty. Thanks

Rebuttal: Ladies and gentlemen happy audience. Here is my rebuttal. Based on the arguments
given by government, it does not have any correlation between the death sentences with the fear
of perpetrating corruption. Again, we said it does not have any correlation at all. We should
focus on the people who accused as the corruptors and they get death penalty.That is the point of
this debate actually. It seems the government does not really understand with the motion.

Arguments: I am sure you all know about mafia of law court.Alleged people will look for the
way to escape and manipulate the result of court. We arevery sorry, somehow we do not intend
to put aside the dignity of judiciary but some irresponsible people who abuse their power of
legalized government to do that.This clearly shows that the tribunal of law court is still likely to
be unfair for some cases. Ladies and gentlemen. We, therefore, stand against this motion because
government has possibility to fine the corruptor with prison sentence. It aims at giving the
corruptor the chance to reconstruct their life into the way of goodness. The way that they and
their family can live happily without any feeling of being ashamed and blamed by all people in
the country. Thus it is the main purpose of fining the corruptor with the jail sentence and not
with the death penalty that criticized and cursed by International Amnesty Commission
demanding all nations to not use the death sentence. Ladies and gentlemen. The next argument
that we should pay more is that there are many people blamed because of the others crime. The
bad people envy with the good people. So, they try to manipulate some cases for the good that
possibly cause them jailed into prison. We should understand that not all government officials
corrupt the money and put it into their own pocket. They do good job without any tendency and
honestly manage the financial administration in advance, but sadly, they are cursedly slandered
by their fellow perpetrating corruption. That is definitely because the reason on how the bad
tackling the good and succeed the goods position. That is why we should convince you all that
this motion is clearly understood and tackling the problem properly. We greatly against this
motion ladies and gentlemen. Thanks
3rd speaker

Rebuttal: Ok, ladies and gentlemen. Regarding the arguments from the opposition, we will give
the rebuttal for eliminating the anxiety of being alleged as corruptor. We believe that
Commission of Corruption Eradication uses the available and undisputed evidence to prove
someone as the alleged corruptor deriving data and trustable witness. Because the fine is death
penalty that is considered as the heaviest sentence so the commission cannot take the decision
recklessly. They must have used the principle of non-error presumption ladies and gentlemen.

Points of arguments from the first and second speaker:

1.Regarding the law constitution, corruption can possibly get the death penalty because of the
mass misery for people.
2.Regarding the prevention for other corruption, death penalty can significantly prevent the vast
corruption officially.
Since we know that corruption cannot be stopped by common sentence for criminal only. That
should be an exclusive law for the corruptor because we already have special court for them.
Ladies and gentlemen. Corruption has similar crime with the bomber. They kill many people
consciously and they deserve to get death penalty. It goes the same with corruptor. They steal the
money from country and it causes many people die because of the money that can help them was
lose over the corruptor ladies and gentlemen. Corruption is a mass destruction of people and it
causes great misery for the poor killing them smoothly. This case, we totally agree with the
motion that the corruptor must get death penalty. Thank you ladies and gentlemen.

Rebuttal: Ladies and gentlemen. The debate is going to the end and we are as the opposition, will
give rebuttal for the last speaker of government. Here we go. Lets think critically with this
motion ladies and gentlemen! The case of corruption is criminal but it is the same with the
others. You know why? That because corruption is the case of morality. If we can lead to
morality into the goodness so it transforms people from the hell to the heaven. And the
government should give the chance for corruptor to do that. Death penalty cannot be used to do
that but prison sentence has the possibility to change corruptor realizing their mistake.

Point of arguments from the first and second speaker.

1.Regarding human right, corruptor should have chance to change their behavior become the
good people.
2.Regarding mafia of law court, alleged corruptor has possibility that someone is envy with them
and manipulates cases for them.
Ladies and gentlemen. This motion is clearly understood that we should give chance for the
corruptor to be the good people. However, if the sentence has been executed and the last was
found that the alleged corruptor does not perpetrate, how is the responsibility for the corruptor
and the family. They lose forever and no one can make them live again ladies and gentlemen.
Therefore, that can cause the revenge from the family. Who knows? They will do crime that is
worse than corruption ladies and gentlemen. So, corruption is the matter of morality and we
should change it step by step with prison sentence. We are as the opposition, firmly disagree with
the motion. Thank you ladies and gentlemen.
