The official discharge process was conducted by the Head of the Badung Police Department, AKBP Leo Dedy Defretes, at his office on Monday (17/1).

The two personnel were identified as Aiptu I Gusti Ngurah Menara, who served with the Mengwi police department, and Briptu Gede Made Ardana, who served with the Badung police department. Both were fired for their involvement in drug trafficking in Bali.

“The noblest job is the job that won’t violate the constitutions,” said AKBP Defretes during the opening ceremony.

Menara was charged with 11 years imprisonment, and Ardana was charged with 8 years imprisonment for circulating crystal meth on the island.

Defretes warned all remaining personnel to do their job per the Indonesian constitution by providing service and protection to the citizens.

“Instead of doing their task properly, they violated and damaged our respected police institution by committing crimes involving narcotics,” AKBP Defretes concluded. He drew an x-mark on the photos of both suspects during the procession to symbolize their discharge.

3 men are arrested for 1 gram of marijuana in Bali could face 12 years in prison, and yet 2 police officers caught trafficking crystal meth only gets 11 and 8 years? You get more prison time for 1 gram of weed vs crystal meth drug trafficking? Corruption and injustice runs rampant.
