Suara.com – Commission III chairman of the DPR, Bambang Wuryanto alias Bambang Pacul, rejected the encouragement or proposal to form a special committee (pansus) related to money laundering (TPPU) in transactions of Rp 349 trillion.
This rejection was in response to a proposal that came from a number of members of Commission III of the DPR during a public hearing (RDPU) with the Chairperson of the TPPU Committee Mahfud MD.
“Mr. The Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs is the one who must carry out the audit, consolidate it. So Bambang does not agree with the Special Committee, today,” Pacul said at the RDPU, Wednesday (29/3/2023).
Pacul suggested that various related parties in the TPPU Committee could consolidate in dealing with transactions of hundreds of trillions.

“So, from this PPATK was asked first, who did you report it to. There is the Ministry of Finance, maybe there is Bareskrim. Maybe there is the KPK. This should be consolidated first so that the numbers are clear. The profiling is so that it is clear. Don’t make the profiling wrong,” said Pacul.
