The amount of metham­phetamine smug­gled into In­done­sia from China, ac­cord­ing to In­done­sian armed forces chief Ga­tot Nur­man­tyo, who has taken the lead in In­done­sia’s in­creas­ingly vi­o­lent war on drugs. Other of­fi­cials said the fig­ure was for last year alone, though it re­mains un­clear how they ar­rived at the num­ber. “Just one tonne of metham­phetamine will be enough for five mil­lion peo­ple to con­sume,” Nur­man­tyo claimed. “This is a se­ri­ous threat to us.”
