The Role of Justice Collaborations in Planned Criminal Actions

Cherissa Ratmoko Aga


Basically, Justice Collaborator is an individual who holds the dual status of perpetrator and witness in a criminal case, and cooperates with law enforcement to provide valuable information. The designation of Justice Collaborator is not only indicative of the individual's willingness to assist law enforcement in holding high-level criminals accountable, but also of their good faith in disclosing information or testifying in court. By acting in good faith and becoming a Justice Collaborator, one can receive protection, appreciation, special treatment, and certain rights that are not afforded to other individuals who do not hold this status. Criminal liability pertains to the legal obligations that law enforcement has to punish perpetrators for their actions that have caused harm to others. However, in Indonesia, there’s a lack of public awareness regarding the criminal liability of Justice Collaborators. It is important to note that although Justice Collaborators are both perpetrators and witnesses, they are not held to the same level of criminal responsibility as the primary actors in the crime. This article will delve into the criminal responsibility of Justice Collaborators in the context of law enforcement in Indonesia. The research methodology employed in this article will be normative law, which involves analyzing legal arguments and issues raised in order to arrive at a conclusion. Justice Collaborator is a term for someone who is involved in a crime and also provides assistance to law enforcement as a witness. Justice Collaborator status is given to individuals who have the will to cooperate with law enforcement officials so that perpetrators of crimes can be processed, and have good faith in exposing or being witnesses in a case. By becoming a Justice Collaborator in good faith, the individual will receive protection, appreciation, special treatment, and a number of rights that are not granted to other actors who do not have Justice Collaborator status. Criminal liability relates to obligations in criminal law given by law enforcers to provide retaliation for actions that harm someone committed by the perpetrator. However, problems related to criminal liability for Justice Collaborators in Indonesia are still not well known by the public. Justice Collaborators as witnesses and perpetrators will still be given criminal responsibility, but not as heavy as the main actors.
