In the first section, Alexandra writes, "In addition to the written regulations, it is not uncommon for the officials of the OJK to have their own unwritten policies (discussed below) and interpretations to the provisions of the relevant regulations." She then continues, "Indonesia adopts a civil law legal system, derived from Dutch colonial law. In this legal system, the main legal source is the Law (codification system) and the justice system is inquisitorial (in which the judge has an examining or inquiring role). Further, like other civil law countries, Indonesia does not apply the rule of binding precedent (stare decisis) and, therefore, each case is reviewed on its own merits, in a case-by-case basis." (p. 3).
