Indonesian Police Detains 3 Foreigners over Drug Related Crimes

JAKARTA – Indonesian authorities announced on Tuesday the detention of an Australian, an American and a Malaysian in the island of Bali for alleged trafficking and possession of drugs, a crime for which capital punishment is applicable.

Those held, who were presented in a press conference in Bali, will be indicted separately, according to the Ngurah Rai airport’s chief of customs, Himawan Indarjono.

The Australian was arrested in Ngurah Rai on Dec. 4 after being found to possess clear crystals weighing 19.97 grams and 14 tablets having a total weight of 6.22 grams, which after being tested turned out to be methamphetamine and MDMA (ecstasy), said Indarjono.

The United States citizen was held on Nov. 30 at a post office in Bali in relation to a packet from which police dogs sniffed out 20 electronic cigarettes with a total 336.6 grams of THC, the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis.

The Malaysian was arrested on Nov. 8 from the international airport at Bali after the police found 3.03 grams of marijuana and 0.65 grams of cocaine in his possession, according to the chief of police.

Indonesia executed 14 people in 2015, among them two Brazilians, for crimes related to drug trafficking.

Towards the end of July this year, Indonesian President Joko Widodo ordered the security forces to shoot drug traffickers resisting, especially if they are foreigners.

Indonesia has one of the world’s toughest anti-drug trafficking laws that provides for capital punishment by a firing squad.
