The criminal act against children is a gross violation of human rights. The criminal act committed by the offenderis intolerable because it can affect their survival as well as growth and development. Therefore, the victim deserves legal protection. Restitution is one of forms of protection and fulfillment of the rights of the child to compensate any damages. So far, child victim of criminal act suffers not only material loss (countable) but also immaterial loss (uncountable) such as shame, loss of self-esteem, depression and/or traumatic anxiety.It is the fact that so far the rights of child victims to restitution are very often violated. Therefore, the child victim and his or her family feel that they do not given justice. It is hoped Government Regulation Number 43 Year 2017 will be able to give legal certainty to the victim to ensure that he or she can enjoy his or her rights to restitution for any loss he or she suffers as stipulated in Law Number 35 Year 2014 on the Revision of Law Number 23 Year 2002 on Child Protection. This research uses theory of justice as grand theory, law enforcement as middle range theory and theory of victimology as applied theory.
