Japanese killed in Indonesian smuggling, Japanese embassy calls for attention September 28 at 11:13 p.m.
The Japanese Embassy in Indonesia has called for strict caution to never drink smuggled sake, as it has been found that there have been a number of people who complain of poisoning symptoms caused by drinking smuggled sake among Japanese living in Indonesia.
According to the Japanese Embassy in Indonesia, it was found that a succession of Japanese people living in and around the capital Jakarta in September complained of toxic symptoms such as vomiting, which may have been caused by drinking secret sake.
So far, several people have complained of symptoms, including one man in his 40s who died.
All of the people who complained of the symptoms are believed to have got smuggled sake in plastic containers through acquaintances, and the embassy has released an image of the smuggling, which may be available to other Japanese people, and has called for strict caution not to drink it.
In Indonesia, more than 80% of the population is Muslims who are prohibited from drinking under the premoniance, but alcohol is allowed to be sold and you can buy and drink alcohol at some supermarkets and restaurants.
On the other hand, there are many people who die from the spread of cheap smuggling among locals, and two years ago in 2018, more than 50 people died in a short period of time, which is a major problem.
The person in charge of the Japanese Embassy said, “I am surprised to be confirmed that there is a danger of secret sake even for Japanese people,” and he wants to be alerted thoroughly.
