TEMPO Interactive, Jombang: The Regency government of Jombang will highly restrict members of its community from showing affection, hugging, and kissing, all of which could lead to sexual activity in public.
This has already been arranged in a new regional decree No.15/2009 about prostitution restriction.
“Certain sanctions and fines will be imposed on those violating the rule,” said Agus Purnomo, from Jombang’s regulation and legal division, on Thursday (12/11).
However, the regulation is not in force yet as it is still waiting for the regency to issue a guideline for its implementation.
Besides forbidding kissing, the regulation also disallows acts of prostitution or even persuading people to be involved in prostitution.
