Indonesian parliament member from Prosperous Justice Party Arifinto watches a porn video on his tablet computer (AP)

The MP resigned yesterday afternoon, but not after squirming for days to try and avoid it.

His first excuse was that it was a link in an email (no, he couldn't remember the name of the sender or the title of the email) and he closed the window immediately once he realised it was porn. It was pointed out that there is a series of photos that clearly shows him opening a folder on his computer and selecting one of the videos listed. He watched the video for several minutes.

Then one of his PKS (Prosperous Justice Party) buddies tried the old "well, hey - we're all human and therefore fallible" line of reasoning. Nope, sorry. Not when you guys were the architects of the ridiculous Porn Law and extend no such understanding to others - notably not to Nazriel Irham (Ariel) who has been mentioned already in this thread. He was given a harsher sentence because he was a public figure. I assume the same logic will prevail in this case?

Finally, Arifinto jumped before he was pushed. But don't worry - because he resigned and wasn't fired, he's still entitled to a full state pension and medical coverage.
