Indonesia already made some agreements with other countries to cooperate combating corruption, but the process of cooperation to eradicate corruption has not always been smooth. Even though Indonesia has co-operated with other countries in form of legal policy and law enforcement, the formal process takes a long time and high fees. Dual criminality, different legal system and good willingness are some factors that inhibiting law enforcement process. Hence, besides the formal way, good willingness and reciprocal principle, the requesting of extraditing the fugitive to Indonesia can be done by diplomatic channel without formal request.
