Indonesia Faces Massive Meth Attack, Adopting Duterte Method


July 28, 2017 (EIRNS)–Indonesia’s Drug Czar, Comr. Gen. Budi Waseso, told the Jakarta Globe today that there is a massive quantity of methamphetaines flooding into the country, surging even more due to the successful war on drugs by President Duterte in the Philippines. As many as 72 international drug syndicates
are operating in the country, he said. “We have became a good spot for drug dealers, because it’s easy to infiltrate by the sea. There are so many unofficial landing points and small ports, also many islands,” he said.

Last week President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo ordered law enforcement to shoot to kill any drug dealers who resist arrest. Waseso said: “I never say that we have to follow the Philippines. We have our own laws. I have to say, though, that Duterte’s policy shows he is taking care of his citizens.”

Citing official data from China’s National Narcotics Control Commission, he said about 250 tons of meth, called shabu in Southeast Asia, are directed towards Indonesia from Chinese manufacturers, but that Indonesia interdicts less that 2% of that. “Shabu is exported not only from China, but from India, Pakistan, Africa, European countries etc. So it must be even more than 250 tons,” Waseso said. They estimate over 6 million users in the country.
