Police Have Detained Over 50 People After a Raid of a Gay Party in Indonesia

Technically, there is no law prohibition for homosexuality in Indonesia. Still, 15 years of imprisonment are possible for nine men after they organized a gay party.

56 male people were detained by police after a gay party raid in Indonesia.

A speaker of Jakarta police, Yusri Yunus, stated 47 people arrested after the hotel gay party event were released with no fines or other sanctions upon them. However, the remaining nine males are suspects to the party organization, and their deeds may be reasons to bring up sanctions because of anti-pornographic legislations of the state.
