In the first week of June 2021, the Jakarta State Administrative Court (PTUN Jakarta) registered a lawsuit filed by PT Toshida Indonesia, a mining company located in Southeast Sulawesi. The Company sued the decision made by the Minister of Investment (Head of the Investment Coordinating Board – BKPM). A week later, the Southeast Sulawesi High Prosecutor’s Office (Kejati) announced that its investigation of the Company had been escalated to the stage of inquisition. It named four suspects of graft, including two executives of the Company and two former regional officials. Three suspects filed pre-trial lawsuits. One lawsuit was denied, but the pre-trial lawsuit filed by the President Director of PT Toshida was granted. The Kejati has reportedly asked the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) for assistance to help resolve the issue.
