    Above all, Karpal was a great father

    For as long as I have been aware of this thing called “politics,” I have been aware of Karpal Singh. As a boy, my image of him was often humorous, based as they were on classic Lat cartoons.

  • Legacy of the 'Tiger of Jelutong' will endure

    Karpal Singh's story may have come to an abrupt end this morning, but the author of his biography says the legacy of the 'Tiger of Jelutong' will endure in Malaysia, where he was a warrior in the fight for equality and justice.

KUALA LUMPUR, 26 Jun (Bernama) -- Sime Darby Plantations hari ini

mengesahkan tiada kebakaran di kawasan operasi syarikat itu di Indonesia selepas

mengkaji data titik panas bagi tempoh 25 Mei hingga 25 Jun ini.

Syarikat itu berkata kajian data itu adalah daripada agensi Pentadbiran

Aeronautik dan Angkasa Lepas Kebangsaan (NASA) dan peta sistem kedudukan global

syarikat berkenaan bagi kawasan konsesi di bawah PT Tunggal Mitra Plantation (PT

TMP) dan PT Bhumireksa Nusa Sejati (PT BNS) di Riau, Indonesia.

"Apabila pemadanan data titik panas dan peta kawasan konsesi menunjukkan

semua titik panas berada di luar konsesi PT TMP," katanya syarikat multinasional

itu dalam kenyataan di sini.

Ia berkata terdapat tiga kawasan titik panas dalam kawasan konsesi PT BNS

tetapi terletak di luar kawasan operasi syarikat di mana komuniti tempatan yang

menduduki tempat itu menanam tanaman kontan seperti jagung, tebu dan nenas serta

tanaman saka seperti kelapa dan buah pinang.

Sime Darby menjelaskan bahawa satelit NASA mempunyai maklumat lapuk mengenai

kawasan konsesi tanah syarikat berkenaan yang telah dikurangkan selepas proses

pelesenan dimuktamadkan.

SIME DARBY-KEBAKARAN 2 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

"Satelit NASA menunjukkan kawasan konsesi PT BNS ialah 180,392 hektar dan

pada hakikatnya hanya 25,662 hektar. Daripada jumlah ini, 18,688 hektar adalah

kawasan tanaman sebenar dan 1,530 hektar adalah kawasan pembangunan dan

kediaman.

"Baki tanah kini diduduki oleh masyarakat tempatan," katanya sambil menambah

terdapat juga percanggahan berkenaan dengan kawasan konsesi PT TMP itu.

Data daripada satelit NASA menyatakan saiz konsesi syarikat adalah 38,473

hektar manakala konsesi sebenar hanya 13,836 hektar di mana 2,474 hektar

diduduki oleh masyarakat tempatan, katanya.

Sime Darby Plantations akan menyiarkan dan mengemukakan laporan ini kepada

Rundingan Meja Bulat Mengenai Kemampanan Minyak Sawit seperti diminta, katanya.

Walau bagaimanapun, Sime Darby Plantations dan syarikatnya PT TMP dan PT BNS

akan terus bekerjasama dengan pihak berkuasa tempatan untuk mengurus sebarang

titik panas dan kebakaran demi kepentingan pekerja, orang awam dan alam sekitar,

katanya.

Syarikat itu turut mengulangi komitmen kepada dasar sifar pembakaran dalam

operasinya di seluruh dunia.

Jumaat lepas, Pejabat Perdana Menteri dalam kenyataan menggesa syarikat

milik Malaysia yang beroperasi di Indonesia supaya mematuhi semua undang-undang

dan peraturan setempat dan memastikan mereka tidak menyumbang kepada msalah alam

sekitar.

Kejadian membakar di Riau telah menyebabkan masalah jerebu melanda beberapa

negara termasuk Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapura dan Thailand.
