(2/1/2013)

Indonesia’s Director General of Excise and Customs, Agung Kuswandono, has publicly applauded the panel of judges who handed down a death sentence to Lindsay June Sandiford, the 56-year-old British grandmother convicted of smuggling 4.7 kilograms of cocaine into Bali.

The senior customs official told Kompas.com the death penalty in the case would serve as a deterrent to narcotics smugglers and members of international drug syndicates. “We hope that this heavy sentence will deter smugglers who are destroying the next generation of Indonesians,” said Kuswandono, during a press conference in Bali on Thursday, January 31, 2013.

“These people have no concern for the next generation; they only want financial gain. For this reason, we must fight them to the end. This is what we must prevent. This is the duty of the Custom’s Department,” Kuswansono explained.

The Indonesian Customs and Excise office is increasing its cooperation with the international community to fight the cross-border trade in narcotics. Indonesia is a member of the World Customs Organization (WCO) and actively exchanges information and experiences in the efforts to fight the drug trade.

“Indonesia is among those countries valued for their experience (in fighting the drug trade) and for having an excellent passenger analysis unit,” he added.

He vowed that Indonesia would continue to tighten its supervision at every international gateway to Indonesia in order to compensate for the weakness in supervision of other countries that permits international drug smugglers to enter Indonesia.
