Ariel Not Setting Good Example To The Public

In a sign that the Peterporn sex videos trial is coming to an end soon, general porsecutor Rusmanto has demanded that the court sentences Nazril Irham aka Ariel to 5 years behind bars and a fine.  In pressing for this, the Rusmanto said that Ariel has not set a good example to the public by refusing to admit that he is the person shown having sex with current girlfriend Luna Maya and former girlfriend Cut Tari in the Peterporn sex videos.

“I Am Ready”

Earlier Ariel said he was ready to face the prosecutor’s demand.  Ariel said: “I am ready, that’s my only option. I don’t want any delays.”

Ariel has been in remand since last June when he was arrested over the Peterporn sex videos.  Ariel has been charged under Article 56 of the Criminal Code with “participating in a crime” involving the Peterporn sex videos and violating the 2008 Anti-Pornography Law and the 2008 Information and Electronic Transaction Law (ITE).

The Prosecutor’s Demand

If found guilty, Ariel can be put behind bars for up to 12 years and fined up to Rp 6 billion ($670,000).  However Rusmanto did not ask for the maximum punishment.  Instead he demanded that Ariel be sentenced to 5 years in prison and fined Rp 250 million ($27,800). The judges are not obliged to accept the prosecutor’s demand.

In making the demand, the Rusmanto said: “We are demanding a five-year prison sentence and a fine of Rp 250 million ($27,800) for defendant Nazriel Irham or Ariel Peterpan. As an artist or a public figure, Ariel is not setting a good example to the public and he has not admitted his wrongdoing. The porn videos have circulated on the Internet so it is easy for the public to access it.”

Next week, Ariel’s lawyers will respond to the prosecutor’s demand in court.


Outside the court building, members of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), People’s Movement to Hang Adulterers (Gergaji) and the People’s Alliance Rejecting Pornography (Ampibi) demonstrated against Ariel.

Think About It

 Is Rusmanto right in saying that Ariel is not a good public role model because he refuses to admit that it was he performing sex acts in the Peterporn sex videos? If so, is the sentencing demand commensurate with the gravity of Ariel’s action?
