Trial begins for men filmed by vigilantes amid crackdown on LGBT community.

A gay couple could be punished with 80 lashes after vigilantes filmed them having sex in Indonesia, amid international alarm over growing restrictions on the country’s LGBT community.

They would be the first men to be caned for same-sex relations under a new code of Sharia law implemented in Muslim-majority Aceh province.

The lead prosecutor, Gulmaini, claimed the two defendants aged 20 and 23 had “confessed” to being in a gay relationship during a court hearing on Wednesday.

They were arrested after local vigilantes in the city of Banda Aceh suspected them of being a couple and set out to catch them having sex.

Mobile phone footage circulated online and used as evidence for the prosecution shows one of the men naked and visibly distressed as he calls for help on his mobile phone.

The second man is seen being repeatedly pushed by another man who is preventing the couple from leaving the room as he begs: “Please brother, please stop…my parents want to talk to you, they can pick me up.”

Human Rights Watch called for the couple to be released immediately, saying the punishment sought by prosecutors constitutes torture under international law.

“These men had their privacy invaded in a frightening and humiliating manner and now face public torture for the 'crime' of their alleged sexual orientation,” said Phelim Kine, the group’s deputy Asia division director.

“The arrest and detention of these two men underscores the abuse imbedded in Aceh’s discriminatory, anti-LGBT ordinances.”

A panel of three Sharia judges will announce its verdict next week, with Gulmani claiming the defendants turned down the court’s offer of a defence lawyer.

Aceh’s Shariah code allows up to 100 lashes for “morality” offences including homosexual sex, adultery, gambling, drinking alcohol, women who wear tight clothes and men who skip Friday prayers.

It is the only province in Indonesia to practice Sharia law brought in two years ago as a concession made by the national government in 2006 to end a war with separatists. 
Not anymore with the Christian non-Muslim Governor of Jakarta (the capital of Indonesia) recently being charged and convicted of Islamic sharia blasphemy.
Reforms allow members of the public as well as the special Sharia police to publicly identify and detain anyone suspected of violating its rules, which specifically outlaw liwath (sodomy) and musahabah (lesbian sex).

They have seen several LGBT suspects detained, including two teenage girls arrested in 2015 on suspicion of being lesbians after embracing in public, as the state parliament has gradually adopted hardline laws to criminalise women who do not wear headscarves, drinking alcohol, gambling, and extramarital sex.
So next time you hear a Muslim female claim that she wears her headscarf or full body burqa out in public BY CHOICE, remember that they don't have a choice. ALL Islamist females living under Islamic sharia law WOULD BE KILLED (MURDERED) by her male Islamist family members and/or male Islamist out in the streets because SHE DISHONORED THE FAMILY per Islamic sharia law. So yeah, they have obviously convinced themselves that "they love" to wear the headscarf or burqa by choice. This is also known as Stockholm Syndrome, when the captives love their captors and will do and say anything to protect them, even defend them. They love their abuser well because it takes a whole lot of bravery to say,  "Hell no, I don't want to wear the headscarf." They are FORBIDDEN TO SAY NO to the headscarf. They are also FORBIDDEN TO LEAVE ISLAM or face being KILLED (MURDERED) per Islamic sharia law.
What "blowback" do you Marxists, and media blame this Islamist terror on?
Local government officials have been accused of stoking homophobia with statements including a deputy mayor’s claim that the LGBT community is a “threat” and must be “trained to return to a normal life”.
