Also known as the crime of khalwat. There is a presumption of guilt inherent in this so-called “crime.” “Seven Unmarried Couples Arrested in Aceh,” from the Jakarta Globe, September 9 (thanks to Twostellas):
“Three Indonesian soldiers were among 14 people arrested for illegally being in close proximity to unmarried members of the opposite sex during raids in Banda Aceh, Aceh, early on Friday morning, Banda Aceh Deputy Mayor Illiza Sa”aduddin Djamal said.
Search and seizure:
More than 100 officers from the Public Order Agency (Satpol PP), police and Indonesian Military (TNI) swooped on locations throughout the provincial capital, including a burger stall, Ulee Lheu beach and three boarding houses, he said.
A total of seven couples were caught.
Illiza said the public had demanded the raids be carried out.
“We have received a lot of reports about people selling alcoholic drinks and prostitution in some areas of Banda Aceh,” Illiza said.
Most of the couples were aged between 20 to 35 years, including the three soldiers.
“The three officers were handed over to the military, while the others are being questioned by Satpol PP.”
