Former Playboy Indonesia editor freed from prison

Published: 06.24.11, 14:07 / Israel News

Playboy Indonesia's former editor was released from prison Friday after the country's top court overturned his indecency conviction for publishing pictures of scantily clad women.

 

The long-running case has highlighted the growing militancy of a vocal fringe wanting Islamic-based laws implemented in Indonesia, a moderate democracy that is the world's most populous Muslim nation. Erwin Arnada, 48, who had been editor of the now-defunct magazine, was serving a two-year prison sentence after a protracted legal battle that began in 2006 and saw him imprisoned last October when a lower court's acquittal was overturned.
