The Second Circuit affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit alleging that the Republic of Indonesia and its state-owned social security insurer, P.T. Jamsostek, negligently supervised Jamsostek employees who perpetrated an international commercial reinsurance fraud scheme against plaintiff Anglo-Iberia Underwriting Management Company. Indonesia and Jamsostek moved for dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, arguing the defendants were not engaged in “commercial activity” under FSIA. FSIA abrogates sovereign immunity where a foreign state has engaged in commercial activity; a foreign state engages in commercial activity when it acts not as a regulator of a market, but in the manner of a private player within it. In ruling on the motion, the district court found, and the Second Circuit later agreed, that Jamsostek does not sell insurance to workers or employers “in any traditional sense,” and does not compete in the marketplace like a private insurer. Rather, as the default health insurer under Indonesia’s national social security program, Jamsostek provides a “floor” for health insurance, and ensures that certain Indonesian employers comply with the governmental mandate that they provide basic health insurance coverage to their workers. Thus, FSIA barred the suit. Anglo-Iberia Underwriting Management Co. v. P.T. Jamsostek (Persero), Case No. 08-2666 (2d Cir. Mar. 29, 2010).
