Abstract

This research aims to analyze and carry out theoretical criticism related to the open court principle, in

the implementation of courtroom television in Indonesia. There are differences in the implementation of

courtroom television in several cases in Indonesia. As in the case of Jessica Kumalawongso, the entire

trial process, including the verification process, was broadcasted live. The research method is the social

juridical method. In such events, the presumption of innocence principle and the principle of witnesses being

prohibited from communicating with each other were also damaged. The implementation of courtroom

television affected the defendant’s psychological condition. Thus,s this research will conduct a theoretical

study related to the open court principle in the implementation of courtroom television in Indonesia and its

consequences.
