Alert Overview: 

 

Ownership Information: 

PT Sawit Mandiri Lestri was sold by Sawit Sumbermas Sarana (SSMS) in December 2015 while there was a RSPO complaint pending inititated by the NGOs Environmental Investigation Agency and JPIK Kalteng. The company is, therefore, no longer subject to the RSPO’s Principles and Criteria. PT SML is 60% owned by Rinawati and 40% owned by Hamidi Mukhdar Said, through PT Metro Jaya Lestari.

No information could be found concerning Rinawati but Hamidi Mukhdar Said is a member of Commission IV of the house of representatives of Indonesia. The director mentioned in PT SML’s notary act is also the commercial director of SSMS (Ramzi Sastra) and the address of PT SML is the same as the address of another plantation company belonging to SSMS. This concession still appears to be connected to the Abdul Rasyid family.
