Joan Bardeletti

Banda Aceh, Indonesia

Illiza sa'aduddin Djamal, the mayor of Banda Aceh from February until June 2014. While mayor she introduced various strict sharia laws to the city and thinks that there would be less corruption in other parts of Indonesia if they applied sharia as well. During her time in office she forced a hotel in Banda Aceh which was selling alcohol to close and she regularly went along on patrols with the The Sharia Police (or Wilayatul Hisbah - Sharia Authority), a police unit unique to Aceh which is tasked with overseeing the observance of Islamic qanuns (local laws) that include the prohibition against consumption and sale of alcohol and the ban on association between unmarried couples in some situations.
