Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Nickel Firm Over Row with State Minister

4 July 2022 13:51 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe official website for the Indonesian Supreme Court (MA) announced on Monday that the court had turned down the cassation filed by Investments Minister Bahlil Lahadalia and ruled in favor of nickel company PT Toshida Indonesia over a permit dispute on the use of a forest area.

Citing Bisnis.com on July 4, the court officially denied the cassation and granted Toshida’s claim. 

Previously reported, the nickel company filed a lawsuit at the Jakarta State Administrative Court (PTUN) in 2021 under file name 136/G/2021/PTUN.JKT, where the company reacted to Minister Bahlil revoking a permit to utilize and borrow 5,265.7 hectares of forest area at Southeast Sulawesi’s Kolaka Regency. 

The PTUN Jakarta deemed the Environment and Forestry Ministry’s decree No. SK.432/1/KLHK/ 2020 invalid and required the defendant to revoke a decision made by the Head of Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) under SK.432/1/KLHK/2020. 

The Minister of Investment was initially ordered to revoke the policy regarding forest areas that are the object of dispute in a previous court verdict before the Minister filed for cassation. 

Tempo has reached out to the Investment Minister’s spokesperson Tina Talisa to respond to the court verdict but has not received an answer until this report was published.
