In mid-June 2020, Freddy Widjaja—son of the late tsar of Sinar Mas Group Eka Tjipta Widjaja—filed a civil lawsuit at the Central Jakarta District Court, demanding his share of the inheritance. The news was widely reported because Freddy had mentioned several subsidiaries of the group in his lawsuit. Soon after the lawsuit was made public, the mentioned companies’ stock prices weakened, with some having to provide information to the IDX. The parties went through a mediation process, but no conclusion could be reached. Freddy withdrew his lawsuit, stating that the petition was flawed. He filed a new lawsuit on August 11, 2020. This time, he listed more defendants and also explained his stance.
