Between Compensation and Truth Disclosure
From the perspective of the victim, of course, what is expected is that the truth is revealed, the perpetrator is punished and compensation is given. In reality, as time goes on, not all can be realized.
In his state address, on 16 August 2022, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said that he had signed a Presidential Decree for the Establishment of a Non-Judicial Resolution Team for Past Serious Human Rights Violations. The draft law or bill on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission is also in the process of being discussed.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission Law (UU TRC) existed in 2004, but was overturned by the Constitutional Court (MK) in 2006. Since then, the efforts to revive the TRC Law have been in limbo. The 2022 National Legislation Program (Prolegnas) does not include the TRC Bill.
