Busted for Bussing

...And we're on our way--to jail

Pull quote:
"Don't dramatize this, we are not oppressors," city official Ahmad Lutfi was quoted as saying when asked whether people enforcing the law would be equipped with stopwatches to time public clinches.

Officials in the city were not immediately available for comment.

Of course, the clarification that makes this less of an issue is the last 'graf:
In Indonesia -- as in many other Asian countries -- couples, married or not, rarely kiss on the lips in public. Women often kiss their husband on the hand when saying goodbye in front of others.

So it's unlikely to be a problem for anyone who follows the local customs.
