“Based on the Government’s calculation that taking into account foreign exchange rate, stock index composite, and the current value of collateral assets, the total state receivables from BLBI funds is determined at Rp110,454,809,645,467,” he said after leading a limited meeting on Task Force for Handling of State’s Collection Rights of BLBI Funds, at the office of the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal, and Security Affairs, Jakarta, on Thursday (15/4).
