In the town of Sumenep, in Madura, East Java, an amateur 3gp sex video in circulation on the handphones of sex curious residents has religious leaders upset and calling for action. The 3 minute long video is set in a Sumenep hotel room.
On 16th May the head of the Sumenep branch of Nahdlatul Ulama, Abdullah Cholil, demanded that the city government crack down on the distribution of the video by carrying out an operation to check people's handphones for the presence of sex videos. He also called for a local law against pornography and indecency, containing specific punishments, to be enacted.
The Education department of the town was quick to respond and said they planned to carry out inspections of students' phones at school. Police chief Darmawan promised to help in the operation.
