Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna H. Laoly recently established cooperation with the Dutch government to combat transnational crime. This is because cross-border crimes are becoming increasingly significant and threaten national and international security.

According to Yasonna, transnational crime is rising due to technological advancements that have made it reach global. Therefore, the government must foster bilateral cooperation in digital technology to counter these crimes effectively.

“The government must leverage technology to effectively combat transnational crime. For this reason, Indonesia and the Netherlands are encouraging cooperation through digital technology and social media platforms,” said Yasonna during a meeting with the Dutch Minister of Justice and Security Dilan Yeşilgöz-Zegerius.

Various forms of transnational crime have harmed society, including human trafficking and cyber fraud. In the meeting, accompanied by the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia, Mayertas, and Secretary General Andap Budhi Revianto, Yasonna expressed the desire for Indonesia and the Netherlands to enhance cooperation among law enforcement agencies and border control.

“Perpetrators of transnational crimes can post fake job offers abroad, ultimately forcing victims to stay and preventing them from returning home. The governments of Indonesia and the Netherlands need to increase cooperation to combat these crimes,” he stated.

Indonesia has already established a database system to monitor the mobility of transnational crime victims who have successfully been repatriated and has tightened immigration inspection processes.

Furthermore, Indonesia has entered Mutual Legal Assistance, extradition, and legal cooperation agreements with many countries to address transnational crime. This collaboration with the Netherlands will further strengthen the level of security and the government’s ability to protect its citizens from crime.

The bilateral relationship between Indonesia and the Netherlands has shown positive trends. Both countries regularly dialogue through the INLU (Indonesia – the Netherlands Legal Update) forum. This annual dialogue forum involves stakeholders, including government officials, law enforcement agencies, civil society organisations, legal experts, and academics, to exchange views, experiences, and best law practices.

Minister Yeşilgöz appreciated Minister Yasonna for the increased cooperation between the two countries. The Netherlands will continue supporting Indonesia in combating transnational crime, legal reform efforts, and advancing human rights using digital technology.

Since 2019, together with international legal cooperations, Indonesia has been working together to train officials and correctional officers in various regions of Indonesia. In this meeting, all parties agreed to continue their partnership, focusing on enhancing human resource capacity in digital realm and implementing alternative sanctions.

“Indonesia can learn from the Netherlands in dealing with suspects and convicts, especially in the application of alternative sanctions and social work,” said Yasonna.

Yasonna also mentioned that Indonesia has enacted a new Criminal Code (KUHP), which reforms the approach to the correctional system, emphasising corrective justice, rehabilitative justice, and restorative justice.

“Cooperation with the Netherlands can help Indonesia formulate new implementing regulations for alternative penalties under the new KUHP because the Netherlands has already implemented an alternative penal system and restorative justice,” he explained.
