Two men could face up to 15 years in prison after they were arrested for organising a ‘gay party’ in Indonesia.

Eight people were arrested in total after a police raid on a hotel in Surabaya, the country’s second biggest city.

The other six men have had charges filed against them under the country’s strict anti-pornography law, according to AFP.
Shinto Silitonga, the local police’s head of detectives, told the agency that officers found 14 men in two rooms watching gay porn and performing ‘deviant sexual acts’.

‘This is the first time we enforce the law and arrest gay people in the city,’ he added.

In a post on his Facebook page, the detective called the event a ‘gay party’ and said police had confiscated motorcycles and cars from the men arrested.
‘May the law enforcement approach be one instrument to minimise similar actions,’ he wrote.
