Finance Minister Explains the Rp349 T Suspicious Transaction to House Commission XI
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - House of Representatives (DPR) Commission XI deputy speaker Amir Uskara on Tuesday said that he is satisfied with Finance Minister Sri Mulyani’s account of the alleged information regarding the existence of Rp349 trillion in suspicious transactions.
“As it turns out, out of the Rp349 trillion that has been mentioned in public, Rp3,3 trillion involved the Finance Ministry from the period of 2009-2023,” said Amir amidst the House session with Minister Mulyani at the DPR headquarters on March 27.
He deemed the minister’s explanation to be understandable as he argues that the majority came from the Finance Ministry’s requests that are related to fit and proper tests to elevate the ministry’s competence.
"After listening to the Finance Ministry’s explanation, I feel that what has been confusing so far about the alleged fraud at the Ministry amounting to Rp 349 trillion is in fact untrue," said Amir.
He elaborated that the source of the suspicious transactions had indeed come from the Finance Ministry, but does not refer to financial data of the people within the Finance Ministry and instead is linked to corporate transactions and tax issues.
Previously, Sri Mulyani detailed a 43-page letter from The Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) which contained a list of 300 letters to the Inspectorate General of the Finance Ministry for the 2009-2023 period. It turned out that out of the Rp 349 trillion, 100 PPATK letters were to other law enforcement officials and not addressed to the Ministry of Finance.
