Actors in sex videos liable to criminal prosecution: police

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Deputy Head of the National Police`s Public Relations Division Brig. Gen. Zainuri Lubis said the persons appearing in the sex videos currently circulating among the public could face multiple criminal charges.

"The actors in the videos can be charged based on penal clauses in three different laws," Zanuri said at the National Police Headquarters here on Friday.

He said the relevant penal clauses were contained in Law No. 11 / 2008 on Pornography carrying a penalty of 12 years in jail, Article 27 parapgraph 1 of the Law on Information and Electronic Transactions requiring a penalty of up to six years in jail and a fine of Rp1 billion, and Article 282 on immorality in the Criminal Code.

Zaenuri said the actors in the sex videos could be charged based on those articles because they were aware their immoral acts were being recorded and because of their negligence in keeping the videos from the public.

"It is quite possible, the videos have circulated widely among the public because of their negligence," the National Police spokesman said.

He said that adults should not have committed the acts because they were clearly of immoral nature.

Zainuri said that up to now the police still had no plan to summon the artists believed to be involved in the immoral deeds.

Previously, three sex videos with actors resembling male singer NI alias A and artist LM and a duration of about two minutes and six minutes had circulated among the public.

Not long thereafter, another sex video with a duration of about eight minutes with the male actor also looking like NI alias A and the female actor resembling artist CT was also available on the internet.

In the meantime, Information and Communications (Kemenkominfo) Ministry spokesman Gatot S. Dewa Broto said his ministry and the police had already identified the person responsible for the sex videos` publication.

The person was identified at 3 pm on Thursday.

Based on the internet protocol, the address of the sex video posting was also detected. The posting was done from different locations in Indonesia and possibly by more than one person.(*)
