The use of language is often misused in various ways, including in law. This research will raise the case that occurred in Pertamina Rokan Hulu, Riau. The case is a conflict in the use of land owned by the company, which is partly used by residents to build a pond without a permit. The resident reported that the company had carried out extortion and threats. The focus of this research is to find out whether this is really done by the company. This study uses a descriptive-qualitative method with the data source in the form of words from a letter requesting the opinion of a linguist on the Pertamina case. The conclusion of this study is that it is not proven that the company has committed extortion and threats.
