What's the betting they never see their bikes again? Sounds like corrupt police can see an opportunity to make some money exploiting this loophole. Should be nothing to do with police but Trading Standards if they have such a thing which I doubt. The certification thing is bull.

the story is real, the impact of the news above were not as described in the quoted paper. it did happen though, the brompton bikes were being seized from the shops or anyone that sell brompton without SNI sticker (Indonesian National Standard) in the bike frames. I personally have no problem and have been around on brompton and I have no SNI stickers on my brompton. the latest models (2020) do come with SNI stickers.

again, the story is real but it's not it. I am based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

That's assuming the same level of honesty and incorruptibility amoungst officials in Europe apply there, not always the case
