Porn broadcast at Indonesian parliament

August 3rd, 2010 - 1:42 pm ICT by IANS  

Jakarta, Aug 3 (DPA) Computer screens at the Indonesian parliament broadcast porn images in an incident that caused a shock among journalists and legislators, reports said Tuesday.
Journalists trying to check the parliamentary schedule found two touch-screen terminals located near the media room had been diverted to a pornographic website showing hardcore photographs, including “young teens”, the Jakarta Globe newspaper reported.

The images were displayed for 15 minutes before officials switched off the screens.

“It’s not a funny incident,” Roy Suryo, a Democratic Party lawmaker, was quoted by the Globe as saying. “Someone must be held responsible for it.”

Roy said it appeared that someone had copied images from a pornographic site, saved them and then uploaded them to the parliament’s website.

The embarrassing incident came as the government is working to block porn websites as part of a campaign against undesirable internet content.
