(6/7/2012)

Underlying concerns that the illicit narcotics trade is approaching gargantuan proportions in Bali, Customs officials at Bali’s airport have arrested another man on Wednesday, May 30, 2012.

According to Bali Post, Ugandan national Gadafi Polikoko (39) was apprehended at the airport upon arrival in Bali and brought to a local clinic where x-rays and medical procedures yielded nearly one kilogram of methamphetamines from the man’s alimentary tract.

According to a Bali police spokesperson, the arrest of Polikoko was the result of joint efforts by Bali police and Customs officials. When the man arrived in Bali off a Qatar Airways flight at 7:30 pm, a subsequent inspection of the man’s person and his luggage yielded no drugs. Working on police suspicions, x-rays revealed capsules of illegal drugs the man had swallowed earlier.

The value of the drugs ingested by the man were put at Rp. 2 billion (US$215,000). In all, police and medical professionals in the course of 24-hours recovered 66 capsules of methamphetamines from the man. Questioned by police, Polikoko said he planned to hand the drugs to a man in Bali.

Investigators, however,  learned that a man by the name of Praktik Prasetya (23) was waiting for the drugs not in Bali but at the Hotel Grand Menteng on Jalan Matraman Raya No 21 in Jakarta. Working on this lead the police, Anti-Narcotics Agency officers and Customs officials arrested Prasetya in room 528 of the Hotel Grand Menteng on the Friday following Polikoko’s arrest.

Both men will be charged under the 2009 Narcotics Law carrying a maximum penalty of death and fines of Rp. 10 billion (US$1.075 million).
