REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The National Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNN) officers have shot dead as many as 79 suspects of illegal drug cases during 2017.

"As many as 79 suspects were shot dead due to their resistance while we conducted law enforcement operations," BNN's chief Commissioner General Budi Waseso said here on Wednesday.

The anti-narcotics agency has discovered 46,537 drug cases and 27 money laundering cases from narcotics crimes from Jan to Dec.

"Of the total cases, we have detained 58,365 suspects in narcotics cases and 34 suspects in money laundering cases," Budi Waseso, or Buwas as he popularly known, stated.

Such an achievement shows the authority's seriousness in fighting drug crimes. It has also proved that "shoot-at-sight" move for perpetrators of drug crimes is not a joke but our legal commitment to be hard and stern against drugs syndicates.

According to the data of the BNN, the police, and customs office, the authorities have seized evidences, including marijuana amounting to 151,22 tons and 2,940,748 ecstasy pills, during Jan to Dec period.

"In drug-related money laundering cases, we have evidences of cars, properties, jewelry, cash, and Rp105 billion (US$7.75 million) in bank accounts," Buwas revealed.

The confiscated assets would be used to support the agency's performance in its fight against drugs crimes, he added.
