Bogor, Indonesia: A civil society working group on FATF has been set up in Indonesia after two days of workshops on FATF and the FATF evaluation process in Bogor. Twelve organizations have formed a core group and plan to reach out via their members/networks to civil society in at-risk areas. The structure is loose and based on common goals of:
1) engaging with the Indonesian Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) ahead of the FATF onsite visit
2) developing the group as a hub/resource for civil society and issues of countering the financing of terrorism (CFT) and preventing violent extremism (PVE) that intersect with civil society freedoms.
