Abstract

Indonesian Abstract: Artikel ini bertujuan untuk menunjukkan pentingnya perlindungan hak-hak tersangka dalam perspektif ilmu Hukum dan Ekonomi (Law & Economics) dan mengapa kita perlu berinvestasi lebih banyak dalam mencegah potensi penyalahgunaan wewenang oleh aparat penegak hukum sebagai bagian dari mekanisme checks & balances.Terkait isu perlindungan hak tersangka, artikel ini juga akan membahas beberapa kritik terhadap draft rancangan undang-undang hukum acara pidana serta potensi teori interpretasi hukum, khususnya teori penafsiran secara pragmatis, dalam menafsirkan dan mengimplementasikan ketentuan-ketentuan Kitab Undang-Undang Hukum Acara Pidana yang masih berlaku sampai dengan saat ini guna memberikan perlindungan yang lebih memadai bagi para tersangka.
