Taufik Kiemas supports
ban on Gaga's concert

People's Consultative Assembly chairman, Taufik Kiemas, has welcomed the Jakarta Police's decision recommending the National Police withhold the permit for Lady Gaga's concert on June 3.

"I think the police thoroughly considered everything before issuing such a recommendation because they have never banned any concerts before," the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) member told reporters at the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

He added that several Indonesian artists had also appeared in revealing costumes during their concerts; however, the treatment was different for Gaga as she was a foreign artist.
