Jakarta, CNN Indonesia

Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs (Menko Polhukam) Mahfud MD say people who have become victims online loan (pinjol) illegal so as not to pay.

Mahfud stated this after holding a cross-institutional meeting with the Ministry of Communication and Information (Kominfo), the Financial Services Authority (OJK), the Attorney General’s Office Jampidum, and the National Police Criminal Investigation Agency.

“To those who are already victims, don’t pay, don’t pay,” said Mahfud at a press conference at the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, Tuesday (19/10).

Mahfud appealed to victims to receive terror from illegal loan providers because they did not accept that they should report this to the nearest police station. According to him, the police will provide protection.

“If they don’t pay, then someone doesn’t accept it, is terrorized, reports it to the nearest police station,” said Mahfud.

According to him, the illegal loan is invalid because it does not meet objective or subjective requirements so that the transaction can be canceled.

“From the aspect of civil law, we are borrowing online it’s illegal, the name is also illegal pinjol. But it can be declared ineligible so that it can be declared null and void,” said the former judge of the Constitutional Court.

Must Stop

The government has also officially stated that illegal borrowing must be stopped. Mahfud said this statement was delivered in the presence of OJK and Bank Indonesia.

Mahfud stressed that the government will take firm action against the perpetrators of illegal lending. Their excesses, he said, could be threatened with criminal articles related to extortion, unpleasant acts, the Consumer Protection Law, to the ITE Law.

On the other hand, the Bareskrim Polri will also take massive action against the perpetrators of the loan. “So that later in various places, if someone is still forced to pay, don’t pay. Because it’s illegal,” said Mahfud.
