The aim of this research is to find out whether the abuse of bonded zone facilities can be punished by crime and how the modes used by these 'naughty' businessmen are to divert or avoid import duties and taxes. The research method used is normative juridical. The conclusion of this research is that the entrepreneur who receives the facility can abuse the facility for the benefit of the entrepreneur or the interest of the individual so as to harm state revenue.
