Playboy Editor, Model Face Indecency Charges

June 30, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

A Playboy editor and a centerfold model who appeared in the magazine's first edition in Indonesia were named by police as suspects in an indecency case.

The magazine launched a toned-down Indonesian version in April, sans nudity, to protests from conservatives.

Police said Kartika Gunawan, who posed in lingerie, and Editor Erwin Arnada were suspected of violating anti-indecency laws that carry sentences of up to nearly three years.
