JAKARTA, Dec. 12, 2017 (Local News) -The Indonesian government is quietly confident it will win a lawsuit against Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper, or RAPP, currently on trial at the Jakarta State Administrative Court, or PTUN, a senior official at the Environment and Forestry Ministry said on Monday.

RAPP, the operational unit of Asia Pacific Resources International, lodged a suit at PTUN on Nov. 16 against a reprimand letter issued by the ministry which voided the company’s current 10-year business plan.

The pulp and paper company said it had sent a letter of objection to the ministry over the reprimand and claimed the ministry had failed to respond within 10 days as required by the country's Good Governance Law.
