Indonesians re-enact porn scenes

Jakarta - Three Indonesian men and a woman arrested for allegedly making a pornographic video were ordered to re-enact steamy sex scenes as part of a police investigation, a detective said on Thursday.

They were caught red-handed on Sunday filming scenes on a Blackberry cell phone in a hotel room in West Java provincial district of Bogor during an anti-drug raid, district detective police chief Imron Ermawan told AFP.

"We asked them to re-enact every single move they made during the shoot, including the scenes on the bed," he said.

"They had their clothes on, they were not naked. They only showed us the acts they carried out at that time.

"This re-enactment is important as legal evidence to confirm that the crime did take place so the suspects would have no excuse to deny it in court."

The suspects could be jailed up to 12 years under the country's controversial anti-pornography law, Ermawan said.

Ratified in 2008, the law criminalises all works and "bodily movements", including music and poetry, that could be deemed obscene and capable of violating public morality.

Porn rampant

It drew strong objections from minority groups and civil society organisations, who say the legislation tramples on freedom of expression.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono this week formed a government task force aimed at stamping out pornography distribution, which is rampant in the Muslim-majority nation of 240 million people, most of whom practise a moderate form of Islam.

One of the Southeast Asian nation's biggest rock stars Nazril Ariel was jailed last year for three and a half years after videos showing him having sex on separate occasions with two television celebrities appeared online.

The clips spread virally through Indonesian and Malaysian websites but the singer has always denied distributing them, saying a studio engineer accessed his personal files from his laptop and uploaded them without his permission.

Research In Motion, the Canadian company that makes BlackBerry smartphones, started blocking access to pornographic websites in Indonesia following the singer's sex scandal.
