Jakarta. Indonesian anti-drug agents arrested two Iranian nationals caught allegedly unearthing 60 kilograms of methamphetamine buried in Sukabumi, West Java, the National Narcotics Agency (BNN) said on Thursday.
The agency captured Mostava Moradaviland, 32, and Seiyed Hasheim Mosavipour, 35, at 8:10 a.m. Wednesday morning as the suspected drug traffickers allegedly dug up narcotics buried in the seaside town of Pelabuhan Ratu, Sukabumi, West Java. Both men face the death penalty under Indonesia’s strict anti-drug laws.
The drugs, a large haul of methamphetamine, was reportedly smuggled out of either Iran or Afghanistan and was in transit in Indonesia to be sold in either Australia or New Zealand.
