01/11/2020 | Jakarta Post

In response to reports that the family of Reynhard Sinaga, an Indonesian convicted serial rapist in the United Kingdom, lives in Depok, West Java, the city’s mayor has instructed his administration to conduct raids against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Reynhard, a 36-year-old PhD student, was sentenced on Jan. 6 by a court in Manchester to life on 136 counts of rape, eight counts of attempted rape, 13 counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual assault with penetration. Depok mayor Mohammad Idris said he had requested that the city’s Health Agency, Social Affairs Agency and Child Protection and Family Empowerment Agency heighten efforts to prevent the “spread of LGBT” in order to “strengthen families’ resilience and especially protect the children.”
