Authors

Abstract

One discussion that is related to testimony is women' testimony. Based on the viewpoints of the majority of jurists in public rights with the exception of adultery, basically, a woman's testimony alone, not worth causing to prove an offense. But non-financial rights of people would not be proved by the testimony of women, both individually or concretely. In financial rights of people, testimony of two women together can prove the case. Some cases that are not visible by the men, only proved by women's testimony. In some case, jurists have variance including women's testimony in the murder. In this research we intend to analyze and discuss the status of women's testimony in the murder.
