Indonesia sentences workers of gay club to 2-3 years in prison after raid at ‘sex party’
An Indonesian court has sentenced at least eight men arrested in a raid of a gay club and sauna to between two and three years in prison, an activist and a relative of one of the men said. They were among more than men detained after the raid in May on what police said was a sex party at the Atlantis spa in Jakarta, the Indonesian capital.
