RESOURCES Prima Group executive chairman and CEO Agus Sugiono has been served with a notice of arbitration following a dispute over payment.
Mr Sugiono had on July 13 received a letter of demand claiming payment of S$8.5 million representing fees and expenses allegedly owed in respect of fund-raising and other services rendered to the group.
