Based on the finding of the research, it can be said that implementation in fulfilling the rights of suspects in Jayapura has not been able to run optimally because there are still many rights of suspects are ignored in accordance with the Criminal Procedure Code and international instruments such as UDHR, ICCPR, and CAT.
