BANDUNG: Authorities plan to prosecute four erotic dancers who were arrested in clubs on New Year's Eve, for allegedly having violated the new law on pornography, a police spokesman said Wednesday.
The female dancers and two male club managers were detained in Bandung, West Java Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Dade Ahmad said.
"They appeared to have been preparing for a striptease and *were wearing sexy clothing'," Ahmad said, after police raided Bellair Cafe and the Music Lounge after midnight.
Police confiscated skimpy underwear and nearly US$200 in cash believed to have been from tips, Ahmad said, adding that they could be sentenced to between five and 10 years' imprisonment if found guilty.
Ahmad said the six will be the first people in Bandung to be prosecuted under the new law, following the Bandung mayor's recent announcement of a crackdown on behavior considered un-Islamic.
Bandung Mayor Dada Rosada told reporters Wednesday he was also considering revoking cafes' operating licenses. - JP
