Indonesien. Sandiaga threatens 'shoot to kill' for drug dealers fleeing arrest

Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno has declared that the administration will take a hard stance in its fight against drug trafficking in the capital, including a "shoot to kill" policy for drug dealers that resist arrest.

“We are serious [in fighting drugs], we will ‘810’ drug dealers who try to evade authorities' pursuit,” Sandiaga recently said at City Hall, referring to the police code for shooting and killing a potential suspect that attempts to flee arrest. (The Jakarta Post, 20.12.2017)
