“Experts” in Indonesia are giving statements in a top court as part of an effort to criminalise extramarital LGBT sex. Petitioners are arguing in the Constitutional Court that sexual activities outside of marriage may turn Indonesia into an “uncivilised nation”. The judicial review has been branded controversial as it seeks to criminalise consensual extramarital sex and homosexual sex acts. The government is not backing the case, and has demanded that the petition should be rejected. The three “experts” giving information to the review all support the Association of Muslim Housewives which, in turn, supports the Family Love Alliance.
