Indonesia Goes Tough On Premarital S3x

Sex outside marriage is now forbidden in Indonesia as the parliament approved a new law.

According to the new law, anyone caught in premarital sex is at risk of going to jail. Naija News understands that the law applies not only to the country’s citizens but also to foreigners.

Reports said the new law is expected to take effect in three years. Anyone who engages in sex outside marriage (unmarried) is bound to spend at least a year in jail.

The new law also restricts political freedoms, a development that comes after a rise in religious conservatism in the Muslim-majority country.

Citizens have lamented the development, describing the law as a disaster for human rights and a potential blow to tourism and investment.

Several groups of mainly young people protested against the legislation outside parliament in Jakarta this week. The new laws, it is expected, will be challenged in court.

Foreigners living in Indonesia or visiting holiday destinations such as Bali will be dealt with accordingly if found guilty of violating the new law.
