Abstract

Violence against women, especially related to morality crimes (rape), has been a great concern nowadays. From the collected
data, it is known that in an only 6 month period (January-June 2002), there were 78 cases of rape, which victimized 88 females, including children under 5. The data in RSCM, Jakarta in 1994-1998 record that there were 919 victims of sexsual abuse, 226 of whom were between 5 to 14 years old. One indication of the casual factors is the limitation in the KUHP which do not give legal protection decently to women, either the criminal formulation or the criminal sanctions. Even there are some articels which are difficult to verity (i.e., rape offense), especially concerning with the evidence of the witnesses and visum et repertum. There fore, this thesis discusses 2 major problems, namely (1) How the formulative policies of the criminal laws suppress violence against women. The research
methodology used in this thesis is Juridical Normative. The research specification is descriptive analysis. The data wre based on the secondary data. Then the data was analyzed descriptivelyand presented qualitatively. From the analysis, it is concluded that the formulatif policies in KUHP have not given legal protection to the victim of violence, both from the
substantial formulation of the crimes and the sanctions. Therefore, there are some points in those policies, among other things are expanding the formulation of violence, both physically and non-physically, and formulating a principle in giving proper compensations to victims, either from the goverment or from criminals.
