The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) says it has found no indications that two pilots working for Susi Air, the airline owned by Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Susi Pudjiastuti, had consumed illegal substances.

The statement follows a comprehensive assessment and lab test from Wednesday to Friday last week, after a random urine check at Tunggul Wulung Airport in Cilacap, Central Java, earlier last week had suggested that the two pilots had consumed morphine.

“The positive narcotics test in Cilacap by the officials there was because the pilots had consumed medicine and supplements,” BNN explained in an official statement on Monday. (bbn)
