On 22 January 2020, the Service Providers Forum (FPL) for women victims of violence and the National Commission on Violence against Women (Komnas Perempuan) held an event to disseminate information about the Supreme Court Regulation No. 3/2017 regarding Guidelines on Trying Cases of Women Faced with the Law.

The creation of this regulation represents a strategic opportunity to encourage the implementation of the Integrated Criminal Justice System for Handling Cases of Violence Against Women (SPPT-PKKTP) in judicial institutions.

FPL and Komnas Perempuan were supported by the MAMPU Program to host this event to develop community awareness about the regulation and develop the SPPT PKKTP concept in five regions, namely: Riau Islands Province, Jakarta, Central Java, Maluku, and Southeast Sulawesi. The activity and this concept are aimed at ensuring women have increased access to justice through the criminal justice system.
