Cesaltina Angela Soares, I Made Agus Mahendra Iswara

Abstract


The Criminal Procedure Code in Indonesia is not known to other parties, other than to law enforcement officers who represent victims (Investigators or Public Prosecutors), suspects (Legal advisors) and Judges. However, in civil law, there are known other parties who are interested in entering into a dispute known as intervient. The idea of a third party that has an interest in the realm of civil law is made into the forerunner of a third party in criminal procedural law in Indonesia. Against such conditions in criminal law known as the term "Amicus Curiae" or often referred to as "Friends of Court" or in Indonesian is known as "Friends of the Court". Regarding how the existence and opportunities for the implementation of "Amicus Curiae" in the Criminal Procedure Code in Indonesia in the future that will come will be assessed by normative methods with conceptual, historical, and legislative approaches.
