The Jakarta Post
BANDUNG: Police said Monday they had named six people suspects for their role in staging a striptease on New Year’s Eve at the Bellair Café and Music Lounge Paskal Hyper Square, Bandung, West Java.
Bandung Police chief detective Adj. Comr. Arman Achdiat said four of the suspects were “naked dancers” from Jakarta and the two others were their managers.
The suspects were arrested Friday morning, he added.
Arman said the police had seized as evidence the dancers’ underwear and Rp 1.9 million the latter had received in tips from the audience.
The suspects were charged under the pornography law and the Criminal Code, under which they could face five to 10 years in jail.
Café owner Eddy Warna denied there had been a striptease.
“We just provided ‘sexy dancers’ for the entertainment,” he said.
Bandung Mayor Dada Rosada, who came to the café with city security officers, stopped short of sealing off the building, but said he might consider revoking the café’s operating permit.
