The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Thu, July 13, 2017
The Jakarta Police have shot dead a Chinese national named Lin Ming Hui, who allegedly smuggled a single ton (1000kg) of crystal methamphetamine from China into Indonesia. He was shot while resisting arrest.
“We had to shoot him as he was trying to fight [investigators],” Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Cmr. Argo Yuwono said as reported by Kompas.com on Thursday.
The police also arrested two other Chinese nationals named Chen Wei Chuan and Liao Guan Yu on a beach near Mandalika Hotel in Serang, Banten, in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The police are now hunting down another person from the network with the initials HYI.
The arrest was made after a joint team from the Jakarta Police narcotics investigation directorate and the Depok Police foiled attempts to smuggle in crystal methamphetamine, locally known as sabu-sabu, from China.
The case was uncovered following a tip off from Taiwan Police that there would be a sabu-sabu delivery from China to Indonesia.
(tjonge, finally they got it right, and a lot cheaper too, recycled ammo ex Bangladesh @ 500 Rupiah per round compared to the cost of prosecution, years in jail , boat ride to Nusa Kembangan, unwanted media coverage and disposal cost to get rid of the cadaver! Yup-yup, first price for the JakPol!) siK’s comment
