Regulations regarding the protection of the status, rights, and concern of victims are no longer sufficient. Victims who have suffered damages due to the actions of the crime perpetrators cannot voice their rights and concerns. Therefore, criminal law reform is urgently required to fulfill the balance of rights between perpetrators, victims, and the community. Principally, criminal law reform is an attempt to review and reform the law in accordance with general sociopolitical, socio-philosophical, and cultural values of society. This study discusses the perpetuation of the regulation urgency related to penal mediation in an effort to reform equitable criminal law in Indonesia. The research conducted was descriptive with a normative legal approach. The results of this analysis prove that penal mediation could be taken as an effort to resolve cases outside of litigation. Penal mediation is in line with the historical, philosophical, sociological, and juridical aspects of Indonesia. Therefore, given the importance of a strong rule of law, there needs to be a legal reform in penal mediation.
