The National Police have arrested a Malaysian national suspected of manufacturing ecstasy and distributing the drug in nightclubs in the capital.

 

“The maker is a Malaysia citizen identified [only] as SI,” the National Police’s narcotics director Brig. Gen. Eko Daniyanto said as quoted by tempo.co on Monday.

Eko said the raw materials for the ecstasy were imported from China by a man who was still being sought.

He said the drug, which was sold in sachets labeled “Happy Water”, had been mixed with vitamins and strawberry essence.

Eko said SI, who was arrested on Aug. 25, had conducted his drug business for a year through word-of-mouth. (vla)
