TEMPO Interactive, Samarinda, East Kalimantan:  Suspected killers of the Orang Utan at the Puan Village, Kutai Kartanegara, ini East Kalimantan, said that they were ordered by the oil palm plantation where they worked. IM, one of the suspects, said that he was lured by IDR 1 million for every orangutan killed.

IM continued that he is an employee of the PT Khaleda Agroprima Malindo who was asked to lead a team of orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus morio) hunters. IM admitted of having two subordinates, Mj and Im. However, IM said that he only received the order verbally. "Ndrong, there is a lucrative sidejob at PT Khaleda. Do you want to take it?" said the man who is also known as Gondrong.

At that time, Gondrong's employer said the sidejob’was to exterminate "pests" at the company's oil palm plantation. "It only requires you to have a smart hunting dog and a rifle," Gondrong told reporters on Tuesday.
