Abstract

From 2004 to 2021 Komnas Perempuan recorded 544,452 cases, and in 2022 the incoming data was 12,381 cases, with 1,903 male victims and 11,470 female victims. Indonesia has enacted Law No.23 of 2004 on the Elimination of Domestic Violence (enacted 22 September 2004). This law prohibits domestic violence against people within the scope of their households using physical, psychological, sexual violence, or domestic neglect. People within the scope of the household are husband, wife, and children, as well as people who have a family relationship due to blood, marriage, breastfeeding, parenting, guardianship, living in the household, and people who work to help and live in the household. In this case report, blunt trauma was encountered, which resulted in abrasions and swelling to the victim by the victims wife. These injuries did not interfere with the victims daily activities, and the perpetrator can be charged with Article 351 of the Criminal Code and the PKDRT Law.
