The former West Sumatra Regional Police Chief was found guilty of violating article 114 paragraph (2) of the Republic of Indonesia Law No. 35 of 2009 on Narcotic Drugs in conjunction with article 55 paragraph (1) 1 of the penal code.
“Demanding, stating that defendant Teddy Minahasa Putra has been legally and convincingly proven to have committed a crime as stipulated in Article 114 paragraph (2) of the Republic of Indonesia Law No. 35 of 2009 relating to narcotic drugs jointly with the article 55 paragraph (1) 1 of the criminal code according to the Nostra prima accusation”, said the prosecutor.
In this lawsuit, the prosecutor did not consider things to reduce Teddy Minahasa’s sentence.
“Mitigating factors: none,” he explained.
Meanwhile, for aggravating reasons, the prosecutor considered several things in Teddy’s requests.
For one thing, Teddy Minahasa is believed to have enjoyed the profits from selling methamphetamine-type narcotics.
Secondly, Teddy Minahasa should be at the forefront of eradicating drug trafficking in Indonesia because he is a law enforcement officer.
“However, the accused did indeed involve himself and his men by taking advantage of his position in the illicit drug trade,” the prosecutor said.
