In October 2014, PT Netwave Multi Media, which was one of the business partners of PT Bakrie Telecom Tbk (BTEL), filed a lawsuit for Suspension of Debts Payment (PKPU) which then forced BTEL to conduct debts restructuring. The peace agreement was successfully promulgated within just two months. In the peace agreement, the Ministry of Communication and Informatics is listed as a creditor and has receivables of Rp1.2 trillion. But the Ministry filed a lawsuit for Reconsideration in 2015, which questioned the peace agreement and questioned the clarity of the Ministry’s position as a creditor. The lawsuit was rejected by the Supreme Court and three years later, the situation with BTEL remains unchanged.
