Our latest communication with Bank Indonesia has been posted today. To my surprise, BI has no authority nor any ability to verify or trace any foreign payments. It seems they are only collecting reports from the banks. After discussions with their support desk, it is clear that they lack the infrastructure and made clear this is the task of PPATK. This was a surprise to me since I have been directed to BI from OJK, was you will see in my future coming postings.
It is also true that we sent BI a question, on advice from Bank Mandiri in April 2019, but never received an answer.
