Solomon Islands: Xiang Lin SI allegedly linked to illegal logging in the Solomon Islands; “Nende Five” protestors imprisoned

A report by Mongabay (linked below) alleges that Xi Lin SI, a Malaysia-based logging company, is linked to the imprisonment of five protesters in the Solomon Islands who tried to stop the company’s logging operations, which they allege to be illegal. Reportedly, the company did not consult adequately about the concession ahead of commencing its activities, is cutting trees beyond its licensed concession and is encroaching on locals’ customary lands, as well as for logging without the required environmental impact assessment.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Xi Lin SI to respond to the allegations. The company did not.
