Man Who Recorded A Couple's PDA To "Educate The Public" Gets Arrested Instead
He uploaded three 30-second videos of the couple without their knowledge.
A 20-year-old man was arrested for posting a video of a couple showing public display of affection (PDA) online
Without their knowledge, Fuad recorded the couple with the intention of circulating the videos online to "teach them a lesson"
He did so through a hole in his table's table cloth to avoid being seen.
"I recorded it with the intention of educating the public. I was disappointed that a public place like that was being used for inappropriate acts," he told a local reporter.
In a turn of events, Fuad was arrested in his home on 18 December for violating Indonesia's anti-pornography law and the Information and Electronic Transaction Act
While videos of a couple kissing may not be considered "pornography," the law banning it was ambiguous and allowed room for interpretation.
Fuad faces a maximum five-year sentence for spreading immoral video content on the Internet, Coconuts Jakarta reported.
"I did not understand the consequences of my actions," he told the police.
