Abstract

The rampant cases of physical violence against children which even lead to serious injuries to victims are very troubling, such as the case currently circulating regarding physical violence perpetrated by Mario Dandy, the son of a former tax official, to someone named David. As a result of this act of violence, the victim was seriously injured so he had to be in a coma for 37 days. Departing from this case, the role of Law Number 35 of 2014 concerning Amendments to Law Number 23 of 2002 concerning Child Protection is urgently needed as a guarantor for the protection of children's rights. This journal uses descriptive normative research methods by conducting a review of laws and literature on books and journals related to the issues raised. In a review of Law Number 35 of 2014, it is known that according to state law, in this case, the government, community, family, and school environment have an obligation and responsibility to protect victims. Special protection that can be given is in the form of monitoring, reporting, and imposing sanctions on perpetrators of acts of violence against children by applicable law.
