TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The House of Representatives Commission III member Ahmad Sahroni demanded National Narcotics Agency (BNN) to take a proactive measure by getting all celebrities in Indonesia tested for drugs in the event of high cases of celebrities arrested for drugs early this year.
"We support BNN to work together with celebrity association to perform urine drug test. A high number of celebrities arrested as drug users at the beginning of this year indicates the high vulnerability of this profession to drugs," Sahroni said in Jakarta on Friday, Feb. 16.
He reminded that celebrities as public figures should set a good example for the society. He expected that no more celebrities get involved in drug cases in the future.
"We urge all celebrities to maintain professionalism instead of setting a bad example by taking drugs. That will be humiliating," he continued.
