Singapore asks Indonesia to name firms suspected of contributing to haze-causing fires

SINGAPORE: The Republic has sent a formal request to the government of Indonesia for the names of the companies suspected of contributing to haze pollution, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said on Wednesday (Oct 7).

The ministry said the move was in response to a request by Indonesian Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar, who said that if Singapore wanted the names of these companies to be officially sent to it, it had to be done through the Government-to-Government channel.

“We look forward to an early response from the Government of the Republic of Indonesia on our requests so that we can take the necessary action against those who are responsible for the haze,” the MFA said.

The request was sent via the Indonesian embassy in Singapore, the MFA said. In the same note to the embassy, Singapore again reiterated its haze assistance offer to Indonesia of:

         A C-130 aircraft for cloud seeding operations;
        Up to two C-130 aircraft to ferry a fire-fighting assistance team from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF);
        A team from SCDF to provide assessment and planning assistance;
        High resolution satellite pictures and hotspot coordinates; and
        A Chinook helicopter with one heli-bucket under-slung, subject to their operational availability.

“Singapore stands ready to assist Indonesia in its haze combatting and fire-fighting efforts,” the MFA said.
