Golkar politi­cian to un­dergo re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion

The Jakarta Post - - CITY -

JAKARTA: Af­ter test­ing pos­i­tive for crys­tal metham­phetamine use, Golkar Party politi­cian In­dra Jaya Pil­iang, 45, has been sent to the Na­tional Nar­cotics Agency (BNN) to un­dergo re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.

Jakarta Po­lice spokesper­son Sr. Comr. Argo Yu­wono said In­dra was sent to the BNN in­stead of be­ing im­pris­oned, as no drugs were found on him at the time of the ar­rest. “Ac­cord­ing to the law, we can­not jail some­one who is not in pos­ses­sion of drugs, even if the per­son tests pos­i­tive for drug use,” Argo said on Fri­day as quoted by kom­pas.com.

Of­fi­cers from the Jakarta Po­lice’s nar­cotics direc­torate ar­rested In­dra along with his two friends, Romi Fer­nando and M. Is­mail Ja­mani, on Wed­nes­day evening dur­ing a raid at a night­club in Ta­man Sari, West Jakarta.

They were al­legedly in pos­ses­sion of a bong set, lighter and used plas­tic bag while hang­ing out in one of the club’s rooms.

The po­lice of­fi­cers then took them to the Jakarta Po­lice head­quar­ters in South Jakarta, where they tested pos­i­tive for crys­tal metham­phetamine use.
