Indonesia’s anti-drugs agency has proposed building a prison on an island guarded by crocodiles to hold death row drug convicts, an official has said, an idea seemingly taken from a James Bond film.

The proposal is the pet project of anti-drugs Chief Budi Waseso, who plans to visit various parts of the archipelago in his search for reptiles to guard the jail.

It is believed that crocodiles would be better at preventing drug traffickers from escaping prison as they could not be bribed – unlike human guards.

Despite the harsh laws, Indonesia’s corrupt prison system is awash with drugs, and inmates and jail officials are regularly arrested for narcotics offences.
