KUCHING: The state government will not be intimidated by what it believes to be a smear campaign after a Singapore-based refinery said that it would no longer buy palm oil harvested from trees planted on forested areas and peat soil after next year.

Such a campaign, said Land Development Minister Tan Sri Dr James Masing, would pose a serious threat to both the state’s economy and a huge percentage of its rural population dependent on the industry.
