    Some disturbing news for the Jakarta Bintangs

    Bintangs

    I have some disturbing news. As I was trawling the Indonesian criminal code the other day, I came across the following:

    Article 508 (bis)
    Whomsoever, in the public eye and without authority, wears clothes that closely resemble the work clothes which are stipulated for government officials or officials who work for the country, for a province or for an autonomous region which has been formed or recognized by law, so that others may perceive him to be a public servant or government official, shall be subject to a maximum punishment of one month in jail or a maximum fine of four thousand and five hundred rupiah.

    Is this the end of the bintang safari suit as we know it?

    With a maximum fine of less than 3 baht doubt there will be a big drop in safari suit sales! Costs more than that to take a pee.

    Just figured KW had some reason for trawling the Indonesian criminal code. Not something that naturally pops to mind as a way to spend some fun evening for most. Only conclusion I can see he needs to prepare a defense for some heinous crime against the state! Maybe internet pornography?

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
