Jakarta (7/02) - The Indonesia Competition Commission (ICC) met with Attorney General ST Burhanuddin to increase the effectiveness of the execution of business competition fines on permanent legal decisions that have not been implemented by business actors. In the meeting held on February 7, 2024, at the Attorney General's Office Building, ICC Chairperson M. Fanshrullah Asa underlined that there were still around IDR 286 billion in business competition fines from 115 Decisions involving 191 business actors, which had not been paid over the past 23 years. Through this meeting, the Chairperson of ICC hopes that coordination between the ICC and the Attorney General's Office can be intensified given the success of coordination over the past two years, as well as various other actions to increase the effectiveness of law enforcement at the ICC.

For information, the cooperation between the ICC and the Attorney General's Office has been formally established through a Memorandum of Understanding signed on June 4, 2021. The cooperation includes, among others, providing information or consultation as well as coordinating the implementation of the ICC's decision with the State Attorney's Office. With this cooperation, the ICC and the Attorney General's Office have formed a joint team to execute various ICC Decisions. Through cooperation, the two parties managed to execute fines from 22 business actors, for a total fine of around IDR 6.6 billion.

In addition to the interest in execution, the ICC also intends to increase the goodwill of business actors in implementing the Decision. In particular, through coordination with the Attorney General's Office in the implementation of prosecution for non-cooperative actions of business actors on the ICC Decision. Other matters include the implementation of training in the field of prosecution for the ICC facilitated by the Attorney General's Office, as well as the implementation of assessments of the quantity and quality of investigators needed by the ICC.
