A sex tape purportedly featuring two lawmakers from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) is being widely circulated online.
The sex tape was initially published on Tuesday on kilikitik.net, which was suspended shortly after the rumor widely spread.
The male politician reportedly comes from the Central Java electoral district, identified as A.B., while the female politician is from West Kalimantan.
The House of Representatives’ ethics council chairman M. Prakosa, also from the PDI-P, said that he had heard the rumors but has not seen the video.
“It is only rumor. I have only heard it from journalists. It is not clear yet who they are,” he told reporters at the House.
However, the council will further investigate the video to confirm the identity of the couple on the video, he said
“We have to be very careful because this issue is related to someone’s good name,” he added. (swd)
