The purpose of this research is to: (1) analyze and describe the implementation of the rule of law in handling banking criminal case involving insider; and (2) to know and analyze government efforts both preventive and repressive in handling banking crime cases in Indonesia, especially in cases involving insiders. The results showed that the implementation of law in handling banking crime cases in addition to using Law No. 10 of 1998 on Amendment to Law No. 7 of 1992 concerning to Banking (Banking Act), also used several provisions of article in the Criminal Code (KUHP) and Law No. 20 Year 2011 jo.
