Application of the Principle of Recognizing Service Users (PMPJ) by Notaries in the Context of Preventing Money Laundering and Terrorism Funding Crimes

Author(s): Suhaimi, T Haflisyah, Chadijah Rizki Lestari


One of the bad and unpleasant news for the Indonesian people is the Decision of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) on June 22, 2001 which stated that Indonesia is one of the 15 countries in the world that is considered not serious and not cooperative in eradicating money laundering crimes. so that Indonesia becomes a heaven on earth for owners of illicit money. In Indonesia it is very easy for owners of illicit money to launder money (to clean up money obtained from a crime). Regardless of the FATF decision, what is clear is that Indonesia has only issued a TPPU law in 2002, namely Law No.15 of 2002 concerning TPPU, which has been amended by Law No.25 of 2003 and subsequently revoked by Law No.8 of 2010 concerning PPTPPU and a number of implementing regulations. This can be seen that Indonesia has begun to seriously handle and eradicate money laundering, even the PPTPPU Law has expanded the Reporting Party and confirmed the application of PMPJ, where notaries are one of them.
