RI hosts IAF to foster cooperation with African countries

The deaths occurred in several parts of the provinces of Jakarta and West Java, according to the National Police.

More than 100 people have died from alcohol poisoning in Indonesia after drinking toxic bootleg liquor.

The country has been shocked by images of distraught relatives and lines of trolleys carrying bodies in hospital hallways.

Indonesian police remove bottles of illegal alcohol from a house in Cicalengka district in West Java province on April 8, 2018.

It's unclear how effective the crackdown will be.

South Jakarta Police Chief Commissioner Indra Jafar told Anadolu Agency that lab results showed that the home-distilled drink consumed by the victims in Jakarta contained methanol and ethanol.

In the recent spate of deaths, police said pure alcohol was sometimes combined with ingredients such as cough mixture and insect repellent.

The other 31 dead are from the metropolitan area of the provincial capital Bandung and started being hospitalised at the beginning of the month, according to Jakarta police spokesperson Argo Yuwono, also present at the press conference.

"We purchased and mixed it with the palm wine just to make it feel better and slower to get drunk". "It was not like usual when it's instantly delicious".

Deaths due to consuming bootleg alcohol is quite common since 2015 after Indonesia's Ministry of Trade banned the sale of alcohol in retail stores, convenience stores and kiosks in 2015. Some governments warn travelers to the Indonesian islands of Bali and Lombok to be cautious about consuming local spirits and alcoholic beverages.

According to Syafruddin, no less than 12 people have been arrested for selling bootleg liquor in West Java and Jakarta.

The Kompas newspaper said there were 32 deaths past year from drinking bootleg liquor.
