Abstract

In the process of criminal justice, the victims are not actively involved. The criminal court arbitrates perpetrators because they were charged with violation of the criminal law, not the violation of the victims' rights, eventhough the victim suffered due to the cases. The police officer and prosecutors act not to represent the interests of the victims, but rather to represent the state or the interests of society in general. The process of resolving criminal cases through criminal justice attractsparticular attention for the victim or party who mostly suffered from the circumstances. This study aims to determine the victim's perception of the completion of the case that happened to him by the Law Officers. The study was conducted in Makassar city, Indonesia, with 100 respondents.
