UPAYA PEMBERANTASAN TINDAK PIDANA PENCUCIAN UANG OLEH PPATK MELALUI KERJASAMA INTERNASIONAL
The problem of crime globally today is money laundering. This makes the various typologies of crimes that appear, ranging from investing, conducting transactions in cash and non-cash, to valuable assets purchased illegally. This type of crime is a problem that has crossed national borders. It appears that international cooperation is needed to protect and eradicate money laundering crimes. In Indonesia, an independent and independent institution has been established to oversee money laundering, namely the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center or PPATK. PPATK was born from Law no. 15 / 2002 and has now been amended to become Law no. 8/2010 concerning PP ML. The summary of the problems in this paper is regarding the rules of national and international law regarding money laundering and the efforts to eradicate money laundering offenses by PPATK through cooperation and international forums. The method used in this writing is the juridical – normative method. The target in this paper is to describe the forms of cooperation carried out by Indonesia through PPATK with similar institutions or agencies from other countries, to describe the impact or benefits of Indonesia's activities through PPATK institutions in cooperation and forums that focus on overcoming and eradicating money laundering crimes. This series of studies shows that overall the legal rules regarding money laundering through national and international regulations in eradicating money laundering offenses have not been effective as a whole. On the other hand, in the form of PPATK cooperation with other (international) countries, it is considered effective, with bilateral and multilateral MoUs being carried out. This collaboration is carried out by exchanging data and information between countries.
