"I seek commitment and consistency from law (enforcement) officers in preventing and fighting economic and financial crimes," the head of state noted during a virtual annual coordination meeting on preventing and eradicating money laundering and terrorism funding 2021 here on Thursday.
The president laid emphasis on upholding commitment and consistency in preventing and combating money laundering to have a deterrent effect on perpetrators.
The head of state also urged the Task Force for List of Suspected Terrorists and Terrorist Organizations (OTTOT) to play its role optimally in thwarting terrorism funding raised through public donation on the pretext of humanitarian donation and other attempts aimed at gaining public sympathy.
Widodo further expressed gratitude to the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) and all ministries and institutions involved in preventing money laundering and terrorism funding.
"We must work hand in hand to maintain the integrity and stability of our economic and financial systems, so that we stay strong and are able to sustain various economic disturbances," he emphasized.
