Palm Oil News Update

Palm oil giant Korindo silences critical report with cease-and-desist letter⠀ ⠀ #Korindo, a major #palmoil operator in Indonesia’s #Papua region, has sent a cease-and-desist letter to delay the publication of a report highlighting its various violations there.⠀ ⠀ The report was to have been published Sept. 5 by the Forest Stewardship Council (#FSC), but the organization says it’s had to postpone publication indefinitely.⠀ ⠀ #MightyEarth, the campaign group whose focus on Korindo’s operations prompted the two-year FSC investigation, says Korindo effectively robbed local communities of hundreds of millions of dollars in land, natural resources and livelihoods.⠀ ⠀ Korindo says it issued the letter to seek more time to address some points, and denies that it’s threatening litigation over the report. It also says it’s working to address the findings of violations.⠀ ⠀ #palmoillaboursolidarity⠀ September 20, 2019 at 11:28AM
