Two Indonesian paedophiles were found guilty and were sentenced to receive 100 lashes of the cane and sentenced to up to five years in prison.
The men were punished on different offences, one of the two men were given the punishment for having sex with his underage step-daughter and the other for having sex with an underage neighbour.
During the public flogging which was carried out in Indonesia’s conservative Aceh province on Wednesday, one of the men pleaded for mercy after the 5th stroke of the cane. He raised his hand and begged the masked officer carrying out the lashing to stop, saying he could not take the pain, but after doctors declared him fit enough to continue, he received 95 more strikes.
The other man being punished took all 100 lashes in silence while blood began to seep through his white shirt.
Local prosecutor Isnawati said:
We’ll only postpone a caning if the doctors say there’s a serious health threat.
