Jakarta (ANTARA) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has asked the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) and all ministries/agencies to be able to handle new modes of money laundering and terrorism financing.

"All ministries and institutions, including PPATK as a focal point and financial intelligence unit (financial intelligence unit) must be observant and able to move quickly, have the ability and tools to deal with new modes of money laundering and terrorism financing," he said. President Jokowi said at the State Palace, Jakarta, Monday.

This was conveyed by the President during the 20th Anniversary of the Anti-Money Laundering and Prevention of Terrorism Financing (APU PPT) Movement.

The President asked PPATK, all ministries and institutions to anticipate as early as possible threats that could disrupt the integrity and stability of the economic and financial system, as well as economic crimes with technological sophistication, such as cyber crimes.

According to the President, the challenges faced by Indonesia in the future will be even more severe, including the potential for increasing cyber crime. Also a challenge are the various modes and new forms of money laundering and terrorism financing crimes.

Therefore, the President emphasized that the PPATK cannot do the prevention and eradication of money laundering offences. "There needs to be a synergy between various agencies to maintain the integrity and stability of the economic and financial system," he said.

We need to build synergies to ensure fair law enforcement, increase rescue efforts, return efforts, restore state finances, and provide legal certainty to investors," he said.

In addition to handling new modes of money laundering, the President asked PPATK and all ministries/agencies (K/L) to continue to make breakthroughs by digitally transforming in order to combat economic crimes that are increasingly massive, complicated, and complex.

"Immediately carry out digital transformation that adopts regulatory technology and  finds legal breakthroughs on various fundamental problems," he said.

PPATK and all Ministries/Agencies, he said, were asked to continue to improve digital services by developing new service platforms.

"Improving the digital service breakthroughs we already have, developing a complete digital service center that is integrated, real time, and able to serve stakeholders quickly, easily, precisely and accurately," said President Jokowi.

Thai rebels were responsible for the Ramadan bombings  Bangkok (ANTARA) - Thai rebels, who were not involved in peace talks, on Saturday claimed responsibility for a deadly bombing in the country's Muslim -majority southern hinterland.  The bombing violated an agreed agreement, regarding a ceasefire during Ramadan, between major rebel groups and the government.   Two explosions on Friday (15/4), which killed a civilian and injured three policemen, were carried out by the "G5", a militant group of the Patani United Liberation Organization (PULO), its chief Kasturi Mahkota told Reuters.  More than 7,300 people have been killed since 2004 in clashes between the government and shadow groups seeking independence for the Malay-Muslim provinces of Narathiwat, Yala, Pattani and parts of Songkhla.  The area is part of the Pattani sultanate which was annexed by Thailand in a 1909 agreement with Britain.  Kasturi said by telephone that the explosion in Pattani Province was "normal" for PULO, which was not involved in talks between the government and the National Revolutionary Front (BRN).  BRN two weeks ago agreed to stop the violence during the holy month of Ramadan until May 14.  A spokesman for Thai security forces in the south, Colonel Kiatisak Neewong, said without naming PULO that a group not included in the peace talks was likely responsible for the bombings aimed at disrupting the Ramadan ceasefire.  The Thai negotiating team on peace talks and the BRN declined to comment.  "The talks were not inclusive enough and went too fast," Kasturi said.   The Kasturi group rejected a deal that would rule out the possibility of independence from Thailand, a country with a Buddhist majority.  The talks were held to find a political solution to the conflict that has been going on for decades under the framework of the Thai constitution.  The talks have often been interrupted since early 2013. The latest round began in 2019.  Source: Reuters
