Indonesia To Criminalise Gay Sex… But It Won’t Be “Discriminatory”. Yeah, Right!

Indonesia’s House Of Representatives has confirmed that “same-sex obscene acts” will be criminalised before the end of the year. However, the many political parties involved in rewriting the article to change the law in the Draft Penal Code (RKUHP) are still in the discussion stage.

Despite global pressure not to criminalise homosexual sex, website tempo.co spoke with Islam-based political party PPP member, Arsul Sani who said that the, “Article will not be deleted, but the formula will be improved so that there is no perception of discrimination.”

He further announced that the House Of Representatives hopes to have the homosexual “indecent conduct” article and others, including law changes to making it illegal to defame the president, promote contraception, premarital sex and cohabitation finalised before August 17.
