The Indonesian government is finally acting against companies blamed for igniting fires that resulted in a massive haze enveloping an enormous swathe of Southeast Asia, with a charge filed against PT Adei Plantations, Malaysia’s third-largest palm oil planter.

The charge covers environmental damage arising out of the worse pollution to hit the region in 16 years. Another four companies are being investigated but they have not been identified.
