The objective of this research is to present a dissertation argumentation that examines the accountability of the managing director in a state-owned enterprise bank in Indonesia in the context of a corruption case involving bad credit. The present study is characterised as a normative legal research. The findings indicate that the role of the President Director is crucial in preserving the integrity and public confidence in state-owned banks when confronted with instances of bad debts resulting from corrupt activities. The role of the President Director is crucial in the prevention and mitigation of corrupt lending practises. This is achieved through the implementation of stringent policies and procedures, the establishment of effective internal oversight and control mechanisms, and the promotion of heightened awareness regarding the significance of integrity and adherence to legal requirements. Furthermore, it is imperative for the President Director to be adequately prepared to assume legal accountability in cases where corrupt activities committed by bank personnel lead to financial losses. By implementing suitable strategies, the President Director can effectively mitigate and diminish the likelihood of corrupt lending practises in state-owned banks, thereby upholding public trust in the integrity of the national banking system.
