Astra Agro’s Palm Oil Conflict: WALHI Questions EcoNusantara’s Independence, Rejected Verification

Doc. WALHI, JAKARTA – In the ongoing conflict surrounding a palm oil plantation linked to PT Astra Agro Lestari Tbk.’s subsidiary in Sulawesi, efforts to verify the situation have been met with skepticism. Astra Agro appointed Eco Nusantara as a third party to gather field facts before initiating the verification process.

However, Wahana Lingkungan Hidup Indonesia (Walhi) does not have confidence in the fairness and transparency of the investigation. According to WALHI, the agrarian conflict investigation undertaken by PT Astra Agro Lestari Tbk. (AALI) in Central Sulawesi and West Sulawesi is merely an attempt to avoid responsibility for any mistakes.

Walhi noted, AALI through its official webside announced their investigation process. In the announcement AALI claimed they got supports from Walhi and the people. The company claimed to get documents from the people delivered to Eco Nusantara in the investigation process.

A villager of Rio Mukti, Korlus denied it. “I think, the institution that took me to be interviewed was from Walhi because it cooperates with Walhi,” Korlus said that delivered some documents to Eco Nusantara.
