Jokowi emphasized that victims of online gambling should not receive social assistance

Karanganyar, Central Java (ANTARA) – President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has firmly stated that the government will not provide social assistance to those who are victims of online gambling practices.

There is no assistance, stressed the President after inspecting irrigation water pumps in Karanganyar Regency, Central Java, Wednesday.

The Head of State also underlined that the government has ruled out the possibility of providing social assistance targeting families economically affected by online gambling. “No help,” he repeated.

Previously, the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture (PMK) Muhadjir Effendy explained that his party was discussing plans to provide social assistance specifically intended for affected family members and not actual online gamblers.

“Pay attention to my statement in its entirety. We believe that online gambling players must face legal consequences because they are considered criminals. “The social assistance I mean here is assistance intended for children, wives or husbands,” he said, Monday (17 June).

Effendy made this statement in response to the public’s reaction on social media to the social assistance discourse promoted by the PMK Coordinating Ministry.

According to Effendy, this social assistance can economically help family members affected by online gambling, thereby protecting them from the mental stress it causes.

The Minister of Finance further explained that his party proposed providing assistance to victims of online gambling to complete the formation of the Online Gambling Eradication Task Force.

The task force, whose term of office will last until December 31 this year, was formed on June 14 following Presidential Decree Number 21 of 2024 issued by President Joko Widodo.

Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Hadi Tjahjanto leads the task force, while Minister Effendy serves as its deputy.
