Pelita Cengkareng v. Molucca Holdings: The Dispute Continues

The dispute between Luxembourg’s Molucca Holdings S.à.r.l and  PT Pelita Cengkareng Paper will not be over anytime soon. We all know that Molucca first attempted to force the paper manufacturing company to pay their debts in mid-March 2018 when they filed for a lawsuit on Suspension of Debts Payment (PKPU).

Two weeks before that, the main dispute (which caused this chaotic situation) ended with the bankruptcy of the Royal Standard group.
