Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Jakarta Provincial Government (DKI) is cooperating with the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) to prevent money laundering in the city.

The cooperation was stipulated in the memorandum of agreement inked by Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama and PPATK Chief Muhammad Yusuf at the City Hall.

"We are grateful for the cooperation. I hope no money laundering will be committed by the employees of the Jakarta government," Basuki stated here on Wednesday.

Through such cooperation, he was also optimistic that all financial transactions of the Jakarta administration can be monitored closely.

"All the reports will be submitted to the PPATK. So, if there are any suspicious transactions, they can be immediately identified," Basuki noted.

On the same occasion, the PPATK chief remarked that the cooperation is aimed to prevent money laundering activities and prosecute government officials who commit such crimes.

"With this cooperation, we can help the Jakarta government to prevent corruption, collusion, and nepotism (KKN)," Yusuf stated.

During the implementation of the cooperation, he pointed out that the PPATK will review the bank account records of the officials or companies involved in the projects.

"So, we will know if any project was misused, including the person who committed corruption, the amount of money embezzled, and others. It can be immediately followed up by the city government," Yusuf added.
