“We apprehended a foreign citizen with two underage children - one was naked and the other half-naked. It was then that we took the suspect to the police station,” said Nana Sudjana, Police Chief of the Greater Jakarta Metropolitan Regional Police.

The evidence gathered thus far includes videos stored in the suspect’s laptop, six memory cards, 21 articles of clothing from the victims, two vibrators, six cameras, and 20 contraceptives.

The estimated number of 305 exploited Indonesian minors was based on the video discovered on the Frenchman’s laptop, according to Jakarta police.
