Counterfeit currency circulating in Bali

The head of Bank Indonesia has revealed that counterfeit notes are circulating around Bali in a very large number.

The quality of counterfeits is also improving, with fake notes seized almost identical to the real thing. Police found more than 200,000 counterfeit rupiah and U.S. dollar worth Rp 14.2 billion (U.S. $ 1.65 million) in five years. The authorities will tighten the law because the penalties are too lenient and weak law enforcement against counterfeiting has attracted more new cases
