The government has yet to show significant progress in preventing and eradicating money laundering and terrorism funding in recent years, a survey said. The Financial Transaction Report and Analysis Center (PPATK) released on Tuesday the 2017 Public Perception Index on Money Laundering and Terrorism Funding, which found that Indonesia scored 5.31 this year, increasing slightly from 5.21 in 2016.
The index uses a scale from zero to 10, with 10 reflecting excellent preventive and eradication efforts. According to the study, the Indonesian public has a “moderate” understanding of money laundering and terrorism funding, scoring 5.76 and 4.92 in the categories, respectively.
