The weak supervision carried out by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) and the existing loophole of regulations used by irresponsible parties has resulted in corrupt practices in all stages of the mining sector. Legal reconstruction is needed through doctrinal studies using legal morality theory as an effort to prevent those corrupt practices. Based on the discussions that have been made, two conclusions are produced. First, the prevailing law for the supervision of the MEMR in preventing corruption in the mining sector is not involving public participation, transparency, and accountability. Secondly, the supervision reconstruction of MEMR in the mining sector must be implemented through the renewal of Law No.4 of 2009 that should be based on concertive control in every stage of mining activities. It is recommended that MEMR strengthen the supervision of monopolistics practices and enormous discretion that turns out to be detrimental to the country's finances/economy through public participation, transparency, and accountability at every stage of mining activities, including strengthening the role of the Inspector General of MEMR, using the latest and appropriate technology, and involving independent third parties, such as assessors, surveyors, assessors, and investigative auditors.
