“Two young gay men have been sentenced by a religious court in the Indonesian province of Aceh to receive 85 strokes of the cane during a public ceremony. The men, aged 20 and 23, are the first people to be convicted of homosexuality in Indonesia. They were prosecuted under Aceh’s strict sharia code. The sentence is greater than the original prosecution demand of 80 strokes each.” (05/17/17)
