Budi WasesoIndonesia's anti-narcotics chief has declared Indonesia to have the "biggest" illicit drugs market in the world, revealing 72 international drug syndicates were detected last year. Commissioner General Budi Waseso said the sustained extrajudicial killings of suspected drug offenders in the Philippines had led to an increase in trafficking into Indonesia. The anti-drugs chief has softened his previous praise for Mr Duterte's bloody crackdown on drugs. "I will not follow or copy it, I don't even support it," he said. He called for the increased use of the death penalty.
