"Moment President Soeharto Freezes the Directorate General of Customs and Excise Due to Numerous Extortion Actions"

Pungli, penyelewengan, and corruption in the Customs Office during President Soeharto's era resulted in the freezing of the Customs Office by the president.

Lately, the Directorate General of Customs and Excise (Ditjen) Customs and Excise has been the center of attention for the public. It is not without reason, as Customs and Excise recently implemented regulations limiting the amount of personal belongings for passengers from abroad, as stipulated in the Minister of Trade Regulation Number 36 of 2023 Regarding Import Policies and Regulations. The impact of these import regulations has caused citizens who have just returned from abroad to pay exorbitant taxes that exceed the purchase price of the goods if they bring new personal belongings from abroad. The existence of these regulations is considered increasingly detrimental to the public.

The following 'Bahasa' text translated to 'English' while preserving any html tags: "The high number of cases of fantastic tax on imported goods and the new import policy has put several top officials of the Customs and Excise Office, such as the Head of the Yogyakarta Customs and Excise Office, Eko Darmanto, and the Head of the Makassar Customs and Excise Office, Andhi Pramono, in the spotlight. This is due to their luxurious lifestyle and the possessions they have. Speaking about the Customs and Excise institution, it turns out that this institution has been suspended by President Soeharto due to the many irregularities, smuggling, and corruption that were committed."

Ali Wardhana, Minister of Finance who at that time held office precisely in 1971 received news of the smuggling of hundreds of thousands of famous brand batteries.

cases of smuggling and embezzlement in Customs often occur because of an agreement between Customs and Smuggling Importers. After the news of embezzlement and smuggling spread, Ali Wardhana made transfers to officials in echelon II and echelon I. However, in reality, these efforts did not succeed in breaking the chain of embezzlement and smuggling in Customs.

Then, the position of the Minister of Finance was replaced by Radius Prawiro. Then, on August 29, 1983, Radius Prawiro inaugurated Bambang Soejarto as the new Director General (Dirjen) of Customs. Radius Prawiro always emphasized that smuggling and corruption in Customs must be fought to the roots in his speech. However, the reality is that smuggling and corruption cases still occur in Customs.

"President Soeharto, after consulting with ministers and evaluating the BPKP, issued Presidential Instruction No. 4 of 1985 to facilitate the flow of goods in order to support the economy."

The instruction caused some of the authority of the Customs and Excise to be transferred to PT Surveyor Indonesia in collaboration with Societe Generale de Surveillance (SGS). The authority was returned after Law Number 10 of 1995 came into effect on April 1, 1997, and was revised by Law Number 17 of 2006. Law Number 10 of 1995 grants greater authority to Customs and Excise in accordance with their duties and functions.
