The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) has arrested two Indonesian Army (TNI) personnel who were allegedly involved in drug trafficking.
The personnel, identified only as Second Cl. ED and chief Pvt. RD, were arrested in Cilegon, Banten, recently with drug dealer AD, who intended to distribute thousands of ecstasy pills to major cities including Medan in North Sumatra and Jakarta.
Some 63,573 ecstasy pills were seized as evidence.
BNN drug control head Insp. Gen. Arman Depari said on Tuesday that the two soldiers and drug dealer were busted during BNN’s operations held between September and October.
“They have been detained by the North Sumatra Police,” Arman said at the BNN headquarters in East Jakarta, as reported by kompas.com.
Arman said the suspects would be charged with the 2009 law on narcotics, meaning they could face the death sentence or life imprisonment. (vny/swd)
