The past year has been tough for the Ministry of Transportation. The corruption practices in the Ministry were exposed to the public, the dispute over management of PT Karya Tekhnik Utama between PT Karya Citra Nusantara (KCN) and PT Kawasan Berikat Nusantara (Persero) (KBN) also dragged the Ministry, and since the end of 2018, the Ministry is subject to public outrage over soaring airline ticket prices. But that’s not all. In the last week of May 2019, the Ministry was sued by PT Duta Tambang Gunung Perkasa over the decision of the Director General of Sea Transportation to give the permit build and operate Nickel Mining Special Terminal to PT Bhumi Karya Utama.
