Playboy editor on trial

Playboy editor on trial

JAKARTA: The editor of Playboy Indonesia went on trial on charges of publishing indecent material, a crime that carries a maximum punishment of more than two and a half years in prison.

A prosecutor told the South Jakarta District Court that Erwin Arnada, the editor, oversaw photo shoots and published revealing pictures of female models in underwear, some showing partially exposed breasts.

Playboy in April started a toned- down version of its magazine in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, despite protests. $@(AP)
