Indonesian mayor calls for LGBT raids after a serial rapist was arrested in the UK


An Indonesian mayor has reacted to the conviction of Britain’s ‘most prolific rapist,’ Reynhard Sinaga, starting LGBT+ raids, even though Sinaga had not been living in Indonesia for many years and his crimes were not committed there. As many Indonesians express ‘revulsion’ in the wake of their countryman’s conviction, Indonesian LGBT+ activists have urged the public to avoid linking Sinaga’s crimes to the fact that he was gay and his victims were men. But this was apparently lost on Depok mayor Mohammad Idris, who said he wants to heighten efforts to prevent the “spread of LGBT” in Depok, West Java, where Sinaga’s family reportedly live. He proposed raids on rooming houses and apartments, as well as preventative measures to “strengthen families” and “protect kids”. In previous crusades against the LGBT+ community, Idris announced in 2018 that his administration had established an anti-LGBT taskforce and was planning to create anti-LGBT regulation.
