Arrests of 141 Indonesian gay men in Jakarta

Lawyers are claiming that they have been refused access to the arrested men and that could mean the police will try and force confessions from them.

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Although homosexuality is not illegal in Indonesia, police still arrested 141 men at a sauna in the capital city on Sunday.

What’s more, after the arrests, the police in Jakarta released numerous photos of the men, and that alarmed activists who say the individuals may not have been out to friends and family.
