SINGAPORE, July 27, 2016 (Local News) -Indonesia's Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar has vetoed a land management agreement with a member company of pulp and paper company Asia Pacific Resources International Holdings Limited (April) over irregularities in the way the deal was struck last month.

The ministry's secretary-general Bambang Hendroyono told The Straits Times yesterday that the memorandum of understanding signed between the ministry's conservation agency in Riau province and April's Gemilang Cipta Nusantara on June 29 was cancelled after the ministry found that the company had failed to comply with "proper procedures".
