"To the third telecommunications operators: PT Internux, PT First Media Tbk and PT Jasnita, if they do not return the BHP indebtedness for the frequency band of the 2.3 GHz frequency by 23:59 at the latest, the Ministry of Communications and Information will revoke the license for the use of the frequency band , "he told the coil.

PT First Media filed a lawsuit to postpone the payment of the debt
When this topic arose, PT First Media Tbk and PT Internux filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Communications and Information at the Jakarta Administrative Court (PTUN) in connection with a request for a delay in the debt obligations arising from radioactive debt (PKPU), which started on 17 November 2018.
This proposal was supported by the majority of creditors and was confirmed on Wednesday (11/14) by a committee of judges at the Economic Court in central Jakarta. Interux was proclaimed in the state of postponement of the obligation to pay the temporary debt (PKPUS), due to which the company submitted a proposal to test the debt structure of the company in the form of a peace proposal.
However, the decision of the PKPU was effectively rejected by Kominfo. Ferdinandus stressed that the Ministry of Communications and Information will file a complaint regarding the decision of the Economic Court in central Jakarta.
"We reject the PKPU approval (Bolt). Unfortunately, we will file a complaint and appoint JAM Datun (Deputy Public Prosecutor of the Civil Code of the State Administration) to become a state lawyer representing the Ministry of Communication and Information in any subsequent censation procedure," Ferdinandus said.
