A married couple in Pancoran, South Jakarta, has been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing their teenage daughter.

The couple, identified as Taufik Hidayat and Mira, allegedly forced their teenage daughter, who has been identified by her initials KN (news reports put her age at between 15-17), to participate in a threesome with them. Mira is KN’s biological mother while Taufik is her stepfather.

South Jakarta Metro Police’s Crime Investigation Unit Chief Commissioner Andi Sinjaya said the alleged abuse had been occurring since October 2018. According to him, the couple confessed to wanting to “try a new sensation in their sexual lives” and it was Mira herself forced her daughter into the incestuous act.

“Taufik said to Mira that he wanted to try a threesome, she allowed it and ordered her daughter to join,” Andi said yesterday, as quoted by Kumparan

Andi added that the victim was promised IDR200,000 (~US$14.30) and a new phone by her stepfather and mother to take part in the threesome. KN initially declined, but Mira insisted that she obey their orders.

When KN couldn’t take it anymore, she told her biological father, who divorced Mira eight years ago, about the abuse. Her father then reported the case to the police.

Taufik and Mira were arrested at their home in Pancoran on January 30. If convicted, they could each face up to 15 years in prison for violating Indonesia’s Child Protection Laws, as anyone under the age of 18 is classified as a minor under Indonesian law.

Police say KN is currently receiving psychiatric counseling from their Women and Children Protection Unit. 

Incestuous sexual abuse is a rarely talked about but widespread problem Indonesia. In their 2018 report, the Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) noted that out of 348,000 cases of violence against women in 2017, 1,210 were incestuous rape cases with the perpetrators mainly being the victims’ fathers, uncles, and brothers.
