The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) assigned a team to conduct a coordination and supervision in South Sumatera related to the province’s problems in the mining field (minerals and coals) in 2014. The assignment ended last year and it resulted in the province’s decision to revoke operational licenses (IUP) of 34 companies. Among said companies, 8 refused to accept the decision and filed lawsuits against the Governor and several other officials. The Palembang State Administrative Court (PTUN Palembang) ruled in favor of some of the companies. The Supreme Court, meanwhile, published a cassation verdict in response to the lawsuit filed by PT Andalas Bara Sejahtera. In this case, the PTUN Palembang and the Supreme Court sided with the government.To subscribe please click here
