By the end of August 2018, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry raided the illegal mining activities carried out for PT Laman Mining. The Company is known to carry out bauxite mining activities at two different locations, namely the Puring and Kempapak areas, both of which are located within the Tulak River Conversion Production Forest (HPK) area in Ketapang, West Kalimantan. The Ministry conducted an investigation after the raid and named PT Laman Mining as a suspect. A year passed, in August 2019, the Prosecutor read out their demands. But unfortunately, last week, the Panel of Judges decided to release the Company. The Panel of Judges stated that the Company did carry out the actions mentioned in the indictment, but according to the Panel of Judges, the actions were not criminal offenses.
