According to Hadi Penandio, he believes, the haze in Pelalawan is dominated by shipments from outside.

"For example, in Kerumutan burns, there should be no smoke in Kerumutan, because the smoke from the fire is certainly carried by the wind. But the fact is, Kerumutan is still shrouded in haze. And of course the smoke from outside Kerumutan," he explained.
