Back in 2020, the Ministry of State Secretariat coordinated with the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to regulate and recover the State property under its care following an audit provided by the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK). Among the State property in question, there is one infamous dispute between the Government and PT Indobuildco, the company who manages the Sultan Hotel & Residence, formerly known as the Hilton Hotel complex. Last year, after years of legal battle, the Government finally decided to end the permit previously given to Indobuildco and take over the management of the once prestigious hotel. The execution of the decision, however, could not be carried out immediately because the company’s patron, Pontjo Sutowo, filed lawsuits against the Government. The latest lawsuit was registered on Oct. 9, 2023 and the court proceedings continue to this day.To subscribe please click here
