The problem examined in this study refers to one of the judge's considerations in Decision Number 22/JN/2021/Ms.Aceh. which states that the psychological expert is considered to have made every effort to lead the child victim to provide testimony according to the charges and the expert's testimony is ruled out. If there is doubt about the testimony presented by the expert, the Criminal Procedure Code provides room for the judge to call a second expert to be questioned to avoid in dubio pro reo in the judge's decision. If the child is a victim, the examination process must be accompanied by community counselors and social workers who have the competence and profession of social work and expertise.
