Anti-LGBT team established in Depok
The Jakarta Post
The Depok administration in West Java has formed an anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) special force, in its response to the arrest of two homosexual men who allegedly spread intimate footage of their relationship via social media.
Depok Mayor Muhammad Idris said on Monday that the force consisted of officials from the Depok Social Agency, the police and mass organizations, with some 200 people from the city’s 63 subdistricts supporting the team.
“By forming this special team, we can help limit the presence of the LGBT community in the city,” Idris said as quoted by kompas.com, claiming that many residents had complained about the emergence of the LGBT community in their respective areas.
Last month, the police arrested two homosexual men who reportedly spread intimate footage of their relationship via social media. They allegedly recorded the scenes at a fitness center in Pancoran Mas, Depok. (vny)
