According to him, recently the company did not have any problem with their investors and the project that became the basis of the issuance of the KPD underlying asset was still running.

The projects that he was referring to is the toll road projects managed by PT Marga Hanurata Interinsic (MHI) in Kertosono-Mojokerto, East Java, with a total project value of more than IDR2 trillion.
Currently, said Marusaha, the project already completed the first phase of the project land acquisition and are waiting for running a loan from a consortium of national banks to continue.

Capital market authorities, he said, also still suspend activity in the absence of company directors, not because of any alleged fraud.
