Muhammad Antoni, Muzakkir Abubakar, Suhaimi
This study examined the extent of legal protection for people who did not have certificates in the land acquisition process for the construction of the Banda Aceh – Sigli toll road and how the principles of land acquisition for the public interest were applied in the land acquisition process for the construction of the Banda Aceh – Sigli toll road. This research is empirical legal research that examines several regulations relating to land acquisition for development in the public interest. Then the facts or events that occurred in the community are connected with data in the field. Data were collected in the field in the discovery process and through observation to get the appropriate information. This study used the case, legislation, and concept approaches. Sources of legal materials in this study include primary, secondary, and tertiary legal materials. The results show that lands that did not have a freehold title got a very low compensation than lands with freehold titles. This shows that lands that do not have a freehold title have less legal protection. The determination of compensation for land rights is carried out unilaterally. Deliberations between landowners and the land acquisition committee did not go well. They could be regarded as a violation of human rights and as a denial of the principles of humanity, agreement, justice, and democracy.
