Drug circulation detected at five entertainment venues in Jakarta

Jakarta (ANTARA News) – The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) is targeting five entertainment venues in the areas of West and North Jakarta where the circulation of drugs has been detected.

“We are monitoring some five entertainment venues in West Jakarta and North Jakarta,” BNN Deputy for Drugs Eradication Inspector General Arman Depari remarked here on Saturday.

He noted that the types of drugs in circulation were not restricted to only crystal methamphetamine and ecstasy but also other forms, so the BNN has continued to keep track and conduct monitoring.

“Since this leads to a legal process, so in order to take action, we must find evidence in advance,” Arman stated.

According to Arman, coordination continues to be maintained with the provincial government of Jakarta through the provincial BNN or directly with the central BNN.

The BNN had earlier raided Sense Karaoke and seized evidence in the form of several narcotics provided by the karaoke employees.

Six people have been named as suspects, and the Jakarta provincial government has also officially revoked the karaoke permit.

In connection with the Sense Karaoke case, Arman has ordered his investigator to continue to pursue the case to gain greater clarity.
