Indonesian authorities intercepted a shipment of ‘LGBT comics’ at a major post office hub in Indonesia. The Attorney General’s office said it found hundreds of the comic books on Tuesday. They were intercepted at the Central Post Office in the country’s capital Jakarta.
M Yusuf is the director of Socio-Culture and Society of the Deputy Attorney General’s Intelligence Affairs (JAM Intel). He told media the Attorney General’s office has set up agents at post office centers around the country to monitor mail.
Yusuf said investigators don’t know much about the comics, but if they had not been intercepted them they might have ended up all across Indonesia.
‘At the moment we are still investigating these comics, as well as publishers and we’re still in the evidence collecting phase. But the comics are written in Chinese,’ he said. ‘If we find the culprit, we will turn them over to police.’
