Law Enforcement / Criminalization
There were some cases of illegal transfer or trade of SALW in Indonesia that have been identified.
Some cases were found in the conflict areas, such as Aceh, Maluku and Poso. The illegal weapons came from proximity of the conflict areas or through informal routes from neighbouring countries.
To handle this matter, Indonesian National Police conducted some monitoring operations to prevent the illicit transfer of firearms into Indonesia.
[SALW= small arms and light weapons]
