Furthermore, Ivan explained that the data submitted to the ministry is a list of all Informative Analysis Results documents along with the amount of nominal value indicated related to the criminal act of money laundering.

"It is as stated in the individual data of each case from 2009 to 2023," he said.
Regarding the handling and fulfillment of information requests from the ministry, Ivan said it is a priority for PPATK to support state revenue and strengthen performance accountability as the state treasurer.

"PPATK will always take effective collaborative steps to handle all information that has been submitted," he said.

Finance minister’s request

Previously, Sri Mulyani urged PPATK to be transparent about suspicious transaction data worth 300 trillion rupiahs within the ministry.

The minister already received a report from PPATK regarding the suspicious transaction, but the suspicious transaction of 300 trillion rupiahs could not be found in the report.
