Death-row Indonesian kingpin ran drug ring from prison: police


JAKARTA A jailed Indonesian drug lord facing execution ran a meth-and-ecstasy ring from behind bars, police said on Thursday, as officials announced his narcotics network had been smashed.
A dozen people were arrested as police said they seized nearly 111 kilos (about 245 pounds) of methamphetamine and more than 18,000 pills of ecstasy in Aceh and North Sumatra provinces.
Convicted drug kingpin Togiman, also known as Toge, ran the group from prison, despite already having been sentenced to death twice for narcotics trafficking, police said, adding that the ring had links to Malaysian organised crime.
"The mastermind was Togiman,"said Sulistiandriatmoko, spokesman for Indonesia's anti-drugs agency."He must have had many other accomplices." (AFP)
