Overall comment

Overall comment
deal should be split up: includes several projects (see http://map.sarawakreport.org/data ); several contracts have been made before 2000 (2016) Contrasting reports on the activities of the company, one blames the company for mass deforestation while the other shows its effort to reforest.
