An Indonesian MP who helped pass a tough anti-pornography law has resigned after being caught watching sexually explicit videos on his computer during a parliamentary debate.
A photographer saw the man, a member of the staunchly Islamic Prosperous Justice Party, gazing at the porn sites last Friday.
The blurred images have been published on the front pages of newspapers and commentators said the MP, who has uses the single name Arifinto, should be prosecuted under the terms of the law which he helped pass.
Arifinto, 50, has apologised to his constituents and said he is stepping down from parliament immediately.
"It's my decision," said the father of five, insisting he was not acting on the orders of his party. "Nobody tried to coerce me."
Indonesia, with a population of 237 million people, has more Muslims than any other country in the world. Although most are moderate, a small extremist fringe has become more vocal in recent years. They have pushed through several controversial laws, including the pornography law.
The law calls for prison terms of up to 15 years and fines for everything from kissing in public and exposure of a woman's "sensual" body parts to displaying "erotic" artworks. Broadcasting, possessing and storing pornographic material also is prohibited.
Arifinto, who oversees a parliamentary commission dealing with transportation, telecommunications and rural development, was an outspoken supporter of the law. He was caught watching the video clip for several minutes as fellow legislators debated plans to build a new parliament building.
The anti-porn law was used in January to sentence Nazril "Ariel" Irham, lead singer of the country's most popular band Peterpan, to 40 months in jail after two home-made sex tapes found their way to the internet
The editor in chief of Playboy Indonesia was last year sentenced to two years behind bars.

A mobile phone application has been launched to help protect the critically endangered mountain gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The app, called iGorilla, allows users of iPhones and iPads to follow the lives of gorilla families in the remote forests of the Virunga National Park.
Each app costs $4 (£3), with most of the money going to the park.
The mountain gorilla population has been reduced by poaching, civil conflict, deforestation and disease.
But conservation work is helping to secure the remaining 720 animals, with an estimated 211 of the great apes living in the park.
The new app, launched by the Virunga National Park, allows users to choose a gorilla family, find out about individual members and follow their lives through reports, photographs and videos.
The park straddles the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda, covering 7,800 sq km (3,000 sq miles).
It was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1979.

"Forget the iPad, this has to be one of the coolest inventions I’ve seen in awhile. A Japanese company has created the “White Goat”, a machine that takes unwanted office paper and transforms it into toilet paper!
The machine simply requires paper, which it shreds into a pulp, and water (about 2.5-4 gallons every other day) to create one roll of toilet paper in about 30 minutes. 40 sheets of A4 office paper goes into one roll, and that even includes documents with print on them. By using the White Goat, Oriental says that you could save 60 cedar trees a year."..."Forget the iPad, this has to be one of the coolest inventions I’ve seen in... more

Mini and art have combined again on a limited-edition book and art project called "Wash Me." Starting with the idea of the "Wash me!" imperative scrawled into dirty cars the world over, ten artists that have never used a car as a canvas have "transformed [a Mini] into a transient work of art."
What does that mean? It means they painted a bunch of Minis lots of different colors and wrote (ironic?) things on them.

Here we see a people carrier (sorry, mini-van) embedding itself in the bedroom of a home on Good Luck Road.
The vehicle came to find itself in this sorry state after a driving lesson went wrong. It was less to do with luck and more to do with the fact that the instructor didn't even have a driving licence.
