Port blocked

In Pelalawan district, residents of Lalang Kabut have blocked the access to the port of PT Riau Andalan Pulp & Paper (RAPP), subsidiary of Asia Pacific Resources International Holdings Limited (APRIL), demanding the company to provide electricity power to the villagers and other community developments as it has promised.

The blockade has caused the transportation activity on Tuesday to the port paralyzed. Latest reports said that villagers have reopened the blockade Wednesday following some agreements have been reached by both sides.
