Australians Could be Arrested for Sex Outside Marriage in Bali

According to 9Honey, Australians are being warned of a possible change in Indonesian law that could see them arrested for having sex outside of marriage in Bali.

This came after Family Love Alliance, an Islamic activist group, filed a petition with Indonesia’s Constitutional Court to outlaw any consensual between couples who aren’t married.

The petition has been called “ill-informed and bigoted” by Andreas Harsano, a researcher for Human Rights Watch Indonesia, who warned that the potential new law could be used to charge same-sex couples.

Indonesia is predominantly Muslim and is known for its conservative values, with death sentences handed out for drug trafficking crimes and lashes being given to homosexuals caught in same-sex relationships.

Despite this, it’s a wildly popular tourist spot for Australians, who flock to Bali for surfing and partying.

“If it becomes a national law Australians could be punished”, Harsano said.
