Indonesia: Comments on the draft revised Criminal Procedure Code
The right to a fair trial is a fundamental safeguard to ensure that individuals are not unjustly punished. Indonesia's existing Code of Criminal Procedure (Kitab Undang-Undang Hukum Acara Pidana, KUHAP) determines the procedures and rights of individuals at the different stages of investigation and trial. A draft revised KUHAP has been prepared and is currently being discussed at a series of information sessions. Amnesty International is concerned that in certain respects the draft revised KUHAP remains inconsistent with international fair trial standards. The organization's main concerns are set out in this document.
