To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations he has made to his Indonesian counterpart on the effect on human rights of the Mayor of Depok’s plan to enlist public order officers to raid residences of members of the LGBT community.
Embassy officials took part in a meeting between likeminded partners and Indonesian Justice Minister Laoly on 14 January where serious concerns about the Mayor of Depok’s plan were raised. The UK continues to advocate for minority rights, including lobbying to ensure that any changes to the Indonesian penal code do not discriminate against minority groups and holding a workshop in December 2019 which supported media reporting on LGBT rights. Ministers regularly raise concerns about minority rights, including LGBT rights, with Indonesia.
