Abstract: Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) pandemic since the end of 2019 has swept the world including Indonesia and influenced the way of law in Indonesia. In the context of breaking the chain of the spread of the COVID-19, the Government of Indonesia as part of the world community is committed to making efforts to prevent the emergence of public health disquiet that is troubling the world. This is as mandated in international regulations in the health sector, namely issuing Law Number 6 of 2018 on Health Quarantine, which aims to protect the public from diseases and/or Public Health Risk factors that have the potential to cause a Public Health Emergency. Furthermore, this was followed up by the Indonesian Attorney General's Office, the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, the Supreme Court of the Republic of Indonesia, and the Indonesian Police, which issued a policy to deal with the spread of Covid-19. One of them is an online trial that has not yet been regulated in the legislation as a procedure for the trial examination process that has been contained in the Criminal Procedure Code (KUHP) but as a form of innovation from how to do progressive law.
