- Indonesia is a legal state that upholds Human Rights Enforcement (HAM). Nowadays, there is often a violation of human rights violations, which is not only done by adults, but also by children, either alone or together with various forms. Appropriate handling and enforcement of the child as a criminal offence is required. Children are part of the young generation as one of the human resources which is the potential and successor of the nation’s struggle ideals, which have strategic roles and have special characteristics and traits, requiring coaching and protection in order to ensure physical, mental and social growth and development. Indonesia, already has a number of rules to protect, enrich and fulfill the rights of children. Indonesia has passed the Law Number 4-year 1979 on child welfare. It should be a referral in policy-making to child protection. Indonesia passed Law Number 3 of 1997 on children’s judiciary and Law Number 23 of 2002 on child protection.
