Police submit dossier on drug suspect

JAKARTA: Police submitted to the Jakarta Prosecutor's Office on Thursday the dossier on Ibra Azhari, alias Ibrahim Salahudin, the brother of actress Ayu Azhari, who has been charged with the possession of drugs.

"We completed the dossier on April 29," city police spokesman Sr. Comr. Prasetyo said.

Ibra was arrested at Wisma Bumi Rajawali in Pancoran, South Jakarta, in February. During the arrest police confiscated 230 ecstasy pills, 16.7 grams of shabu-shabu (crystal methamphetamine), 8.5 grams of cocaine and an electronic scale.

Ibra served several months in jail after he was arrested for drug possession on Aug. 31, 2000, at a house on Jl. Batu Merah in South Jakarta.

There were rumors at the time that Ibra had been arrested along with a son of Vice President Hamzah Haz. These rumors were strongly denied by Hamzah. --JP
