Quote from Reuters AlertNet
Haze from the Sumatra and Borneo fires blanketed neighbouring Malaysia and Singapore in past weeks, sending air quality to unhealthy levels and disrupting flights and sea navigation.
“Unless action is taken against the offenders, mainly large plantation and timber companies, we will continue to choke on haze in the coming years,” Hapsoro, a forest campaigner for Greenpeace Southeast Asia. tells Reuters.
But Riau police chief Ito Sumardi says fires and haze have significantly decreased in Riau thanks to firm law enforcement.
