May 1, 2017
Eight men have been arrested by the Indonesian Police for allegedly organising gay party, the police has filed preliminary charges against them under Indonesia’s tough anti-p****graphy law.
Two of the eight could face up to 15 years in jail for initiating and facilitating the event, while the six others were released.
“This is the first time we enforce the law and arrest gay people in the city,” Silitonga told AFP.
Except for Aceh province, which upholds sharia law, gay s*x is not illegal in Indonesia, which mainly follows a criminal code inherited from former colonial ruler the Netherlands.
