In mid-2018, PT Maspion filed a lawsuit at the Surabaya State Administrative Court (PTUN Surabaya) against the Mayor of Surabaya. The lawsuit was filed because the city government had refused the company’s request to extend the validity of the certificate on Rights to Build (HGB) that applied to land and buildings used by the company. The city government apparently wanted to use the land for a project and thought that Maspion did not use its rights as it should have. Moreover, the city government claims that the Company submitted the application for the extension of the validity period of the HGB beyond the time limit specified in the regulation. But Maspion has a different version of the story. At the end of March 2019, the East Java State Administrative High Court (PTTUN) ruled in favor of Maspion, but the city government refuses to accept defeat.
