ASEAN MPs urge Indonesia to reject Criminal Code amendments General—07 Feb 18

Bangkok--7 Feb--ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights

Draft amendments to Indonesia's Criminal Code currently being debated in the House of Representatives would, if approved, severely violate the rights to privacy and to non-discrimination in the country, ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights (APHR) said today.

The collective of regional lawmakers called on members of the Indonesian Parliament to reject the amendments, which propose to expand the definition of adultery and criminalize consensual sex between unmarried persons, potentially including same-sex relationships.

"These amendments are a blatant violation of all Indonesians' right to privacy and their fundamental liberties. It is extremely worrying that private affairs between two consenting, law-abiding adults could very soon be opened to government interference and scrutiny," said APHR Board Member Teddy Baguilat, a member of the House of Representatives of the Philippines.

"For a country that has rightly considered itself a leader within the ASEAN region on issues of human rights, this would be a clear move in the wrong direction. Indonesia should be protecting the rights of its citizens, rather than exposing them to increased harassment and prosecution," he added.

Regional MPs expressed concern about the proposed amendments' implications for LGBT
