More than 35,000 hectares of natural forest were converted into industrial timber plantations. This includes orangutan habitat areas and peatlands where the government is prohibited from clearing them.
PT Mayawana Persada has also cleared customary forests on the land of the Kualan Hilir indigenous community. They have also pitted communities against each other to sell their land without proper compensation, intimidating and criminalizing.
The following is a joint report prepared by the Coalition of Civil Society Organizations regarding the ecological damage and human rights violations committed by PT Mayawana Persada in Ketapang Regency, West Kalimantan.
