House of Representatives (DPR)
In a major embarrassment for Indonesia’s House of Representatives, journalists and House staff members were exposed to hard-core pornographic images broadcast on an internal large-screen television normally used to provide information on the daily political schedule.

And despite the efforts of journalists to turn the images off, they were unable to do so until security finally succeeded about 15 minutes after the images were first broadcast.

The images are also understood to have been broadcast on similar big-screen televisions in the offices of the House leadership.

The extremely hard-core photographs and advertisements — including one for “young teens” — were taken from an adult Web site that is banned in neighboring Singapore and Malaysia.

The timing of the incident could not have come at a worse time for the government, with the Communications and Information Technology Ministry under minister Tifatul Sembiring hoping to pass a decree blocking Web sites it deems pornographic.

House Deputy Speaker Taufik Kurniawan has officially apologized for the incident and the House has launched an investigation.
