Abstract

This research aims to examine the Criminal Law Enforcement of mercury accu disposal by industrial used batteries around residential areas so as to cause underground water pollution, in order to implement environmental criminal lawen for cement which is currently still weak in handling cases of environmental pollution and/or damage in Indonesia. The approach used in the research is Socio-legal Research, because it does not only use an approach in one legal discipline but uses several other disciplines such as medicine, chemistry, social sciences, environmental sciences and so on. Based on the results of research in the field illustrating that the environmental criminal law enforcement against underground water pollution due to the disposal of mercury by the used battery smelting industry is open dumping into the environmental field, waste is thrown away in residential areas so that the contaminated soil is dangerous well water is not suitable for consumption, the fruit from the tree is not suitable for consumption and not a few people are attacked by the disease until the baby is born with disabilities (paralysis and mental retardation). One of the factors is the weak criminal lawen forcement, especially in the environmental sector, so that in the implementation of many cases environmental pollution and/or destruction is not resolved completely. Therefore, it is necessary to take appropriate steps to optimize the enforcement of environmental criminal law by implementing environmental criminal law enforcement, especially in handling cases of open dumping of mercury to realize sustainable development.
