Maria Gabrielle, Jakarta – The Jakarta Police have taken four men and one woman into custody, charging them with the production and distribution of explicit adult content.

He operates a website for streaming the explicit content, according to Chief Comr. Ade Safri Simanjuntak, the director of the special crime division with the Jakarta Police.

Among the other suspects are three men who played critical roles in the production process: a cameraman, a movie editor, and a sound effect technician.

"The fifth suspect, identified as 'SE,' served as the group's secretary and also participated as a female performer in the videos they created," Ade said during a news conference held at the metropolitan police headquarters,

All of the suspects are facing charges under both the Pornography Law and the Electronic Information and Transaction Law, according to the officer.

Further investigations have unveiled the extent of the covert adult content industry, involving a total of 12 female performers and five male performers.

"We have apprehended one female performer and are actively expanding our investigation to locate and interview the remaining 11 individuals. Additionally, we are looking into the involvement of five male performers as part of our inquiry," he said.
