The challenges caused by COVID-19 have not halted illegal drugs trafficking. This is shown by increased drug seizures by ASEAN member countries.

This was said by Head of National Narcotics Agency (BNN) of Indonesia Heru Winarko during the 41st ASEAN Senior Officials on Drug Matters (ASOD) Meeting held virtually on December 1.

Deputy Legal and Cooperation of BNN Indonesia Puji Sarwono chaired the meeting attended by Director of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Mohd Zalani bin Haji Ismail as the Brunei head of delegation and senior officers at NCB.
