One box of masks originally costs from Rp 30,000 (US$2.12) to Rp 40,000, but they were selling [one] for Rp 275,000,” Iskandar said. “People were rushing to look for face masks after the coronavirus [announcement] and they panicked when they couldn’t find it at [stores], so they resorted to buying them from the suspects,” he added. The suspects have been charged under Article 107 of Law No. 7/2014 on Trade, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison sentence and a Rp 50 billion fine.
