Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo has instructed law enforcement officers to shoot and kill drug traffickers

Indonesian president orders officers
Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo has instructed law enforcement officers to shoot and kill drug traffickers to deal with a narcotics emergency facing the country.
“Be firm, especially to foreign drug dealers who enter the country and resist arrest. Shoot them because we indeed are in a narcotics emergency position now,” Widodo said in a speech delivered at an event held by one of Indonesia’s political parties late on Friday.
The order has now drawn a comparison to that of Philippine’s President Rodrigo Duterte, who launched a brutal anti-drug crackdown about a year ago that saw many alleged drug dealers killed.
Reuters reported that the bloody campaign in the Philippines has drawn condemnation from the international community, including the United Nations.
