The Overlooked – She in Vortex of Death Penalty

by icjrid | 08/10/2021 2:44 pm

It seems that the struggle to end the death penalty in Indonesia is still going to be a long way. However, we must continue to tirelessly be calling for the abolition of this punishment which is contrary to just and civilized humanity.

Quoting from the statement of the UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights, the death penalty was reserved for the poor. The condition of a person’s vulnerability, related to an unfortunate social and economic background, will result in a greater chance of being entangled in the vortex of the death penalty. This is further exacerbated by the current state of Indonesia’s criminal justice system.

This vulnerability has caused some groups of people to suffer twice as hard. One of them is women. When dealing with the criminal justice system, women who face the death penalty charge are at the highest level of risk. Gender-based discrimination is still real in our criminal justice system.
