The paper deals with the absent of criminalization of embezzlement in capital market act and produce the recommendation to cope with the issue. This study uses a normative legal analysis method with a conceptual, an analytical, and a case study approach. Several legal cases that are strongly indicated to be in the realm of embezzlement in the capital market have become the subject of a comprehensive study, with the main characteristic being that the victims are massive, and even more investors suffer losses. Testing through elements of fraud, market manipulation and insider trading did not meet the requirements, however where it is viewed from the elements of the embezzlement, this is more appropriate.
