The last time I came across reports like this was few months back. Our authority did give an explanation and make rebuttals but it didn't take long for them to hit out at us again.
"Orangutans chased by dogs, orangutans beaten to death with poles and others shot to death. All this was paid for by a Malaysian owned palm oil company. Despite our pleas to the prime minister, the Malaysian government showed neither compassion nor interest.Did our companies really commit those 'mass murder'? I doubt it but an investigation should be carried out.
"Malaysian owned palm oil companies operate throughout Kalimantan. They tear down primary forests and slaughter every living animal in sight.
"They leave nothing. No one should trust them or anything they say. Better to judge them by what they do.
"The forests are replaced with palm oil plantations and local people are paid poverty-level wages for work few Malaysians care to do even in their own country.
All profits from the palm oil grown in our country are then channeled back to Malaysia."
From what I heard, the workers are not Malaysians but Indonesians...
