In the same area where the Ministry or Forest and the EU observed illegal logging by SGSOC, the Minter of Forests has apparently granted an authorization to cut down additional trees and plant palm oil saplings. Interesting that they get to illegally log and conduct business all in the same place.

As these show, SGSOC decided to disregard the Ministry of Forest’s convocation, which is itself a violation of the law.
