Indonesia anti-porn MP quits for watching porn

A member of parliament from an Islamic party which promoted anti-pornography legislation has resigned after being caught watching porn in parliament.

Mr Arifinto of the Islamic Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) was photographed looking at the images on Friday.

He said he had inadvertently opened an email link which led him to the images.

Pornography has become one of the testing grounds of conservative Islam’s influence over politics in Indonesia.

For the recent developing media coverage, I apologise to all members of the party and parliament, Mr Arifinto – who goes by one name – told a news conference — via richardfarner.newsvine.com
