Implementation of the Criminal Justice System for Persons with Disabilities
Keywords:Criminal justice system, Normal ideology, Persons with disabilities, Social approach
The criminal justice system is built on the ideology of normality, a perspective that all people are physically
and intellectually normal. Consequently, the process of investigation, prosecution and examination in court
proceedings is only aimed at and designed for those who are normal. The existence of persons with disabilities
has become marginalized and even forgotten. The rights of persons with disabilities are often violated both
when they are perpetrators and witnesses/victims of criminal acts. In order for the criminal justice system to
be pro for them, the medical approach should be abandoned and replaced with a social approach. Here what
is needed is what the law enforcers need to fulfill at each stage of the criminal justice so that persons with
disabilities have the right to a fair criminal trial. A profile assessment is necessary to determine the character,
barriers and needs of persons with disabilities in the early stages of the criminal justice process.
