REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, KUALA LUMPUR -- The Indonesian and Malaysian Police have busted an international drug syndicate based in Malaysia following the arrest of two Indonesians and a Malaysian man on Tuesday.

Penang Deputy Police Chief Roslee Chik noted in a press conference on Wednesday that the Malaysian police have seized 24.7 kilograms of methamphetamine and 8,400 ecstasy pills, worth 2.06 million Malaysian ringgit (US$497.225).

Chik said the success in uncovering the syndicate was the outcome of cooperation between the Malaysian and Indonesian Police.

Police Attaché of the Indonesian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur Senior Commissioner Chaidir said such cooperation is crucial for eradicating the trafficking of drugs.

"The cooperation is aimed at protecting Indonesian and Malaysian citizens as well as global society. Cooperation among law enforcement institutions must be built to eradicate the global distribution of illegal drugs," he added.

He highlighted the importance for governments to synchronize perception on the distribution of illegal drugs, as neighboring countries will also bear the brunt.

Hence, efforts should be undertaken to clamp down on drug syndicates to realize the goal of a drug-free ASEAN.

"We hope that cooperation during the joint operation would be conducted with other countries in Asia and Europe," he added.
