World has been shocked by  ransomware attack. Until today countries still pin point to each other as nobody know who activate the virus. I'm attached security cum forensic agency and I'm a bot perplex with the Law & governed the Digital Forensics. The big question is why the culprits seemed to be always get away with the crime? Aren't the existing Law strong enough?

You answered this question in your second sentence - it is extremely difficult to identify the culprits with any certainty. The laws generally are strong enough, indeed in some jurisdictions the penalties can only be called ferocious. There are also problems due to the international nature of many of these acts. Country A may have evidence that the perpretators are based in Country B but the authorities in country B may be reluctant to move against them especially if they were working on behalf of the government of Country B.
