The Indonesian military continues to run businesses

The Indonesian military is mentioned in the latest Report on the Observance of the Code of Good Practices on Fiscal Transparency from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) ( Business as usual in Indonesia despite the fall of Soeharto 27 November 2006)

"The Indonesian Military (TNI ) and National Police are continuing their old practice of using cooperatives and foundations to raise money from the public.

"These remain off-budget.

"Unfortunately such practices can also be found at other ministries and state agencies.

"In the TNI's case, these practices violate a 2004 law stating that all TNI business must be transferred to the government.

"This is only one of the appropriate laws and regulations that has not been implemented."
