Kuala Lumpur, Sept 13 — Jakarta has sealed land belonging to the Indonesian subsidiary of a Malaysian plantation firm on suspicion of deliberate open burning, in an apparent bid to prove its insistence that Malaysia was also partly culpable for the haze affection the region. Indonesia’s Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar said Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad is the biggest shareholder in the Indonesian company whose land in Indonesia’s Riau province was sealed off.

“We have already checked the business which burned the forest is from Malaysia. Already sealed 11,” she was quoted as telling media outlet CNNIndonesia.com yesterday.
