The scandal involving allegations that Marines shared naked photos of female service members online has extended to all service branches, after the discovery of another secret site.
The latest illicit forum is known as Anon-IB, the same site that shared nude photos of Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lawrence.
Hery Cahyono, a face recognition expert from the police’s Indonesia Automatic Fingerprints Identification System (Inafis) division, said authorities used several methods, including biometrics, to check whether the woman who appeared in the sex chats was really Firza.
He said police compared pictures of the female activist when she was arrested over an alleged plot against the government on Hery said the team also used a bio-finder method, during which they checked Firza’s naked pictures in the Whats App conversations and her pictures on her ID card and in the Home Ministry’s e-ID database.
"This case is fabricated and libelous,” Firza’s lawyer Azis Yanuar said.
The discovery comes after the Defense Department launched an investigation into pictures being shared of female Marines and others – some taken without their knowledge – on the Facebook page “Marines United.” “These allegations undermine everything we stand for as Marines,” Marine Corps commandant Gen. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, in a statement Friday, also said the “chain of command is taking all appropriate action to investigate potential misconduct and to maintain good order and discipline.” Mattis decried the “lack of respect” and said the Pentagon “will not excuse or tolerate such behavior.” He said: "The purported actions of civilian and military personnel on social media websites, including some associated with the Marines United group and possibly others, represent egregious violations of the fundamental values we uphold at the Department of Defense.” Not In My Marines, a group of female Marines that formed in response to the controversy, is now seeking legislation to make sharing nude photos and sex videos without someone's permission a federal crime.Despite growing attention to the issue in NC ( Jeff Welty’s 2009 blog post on sexting), lawmakers have not yet enacted a law that specifically addresses teen sexting. Surely, lawmakers could not have intended such a harsh consequence for a teen who sends a nude selfie to his girlfriend or vice versa. As a result, teens who engage in sexting are often charged with violating laws that prohibit child pornography and obscenity, which were designed to punish adult predators who sexually victimize children. 14-208.6(5) (defining sexual exploitation of a minor as a “sexually violent offense” which requires registration under G. There are certainly less serious offenses that would provide appropriate consequences for the conduct without giving a 17-year-old a sentence as both a convicted felon and registered sex offender. It appears that there are three categories of criminal offenses that can possibly be used to charge minors (under the age of 18) with sexting: obscenity, disseminating material harmful to minors, and sexual exploitation of a minor. 2256(2)(A)(v), similarly defines “sexually explicit conduct” to include the “lascivious exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of any person.” In determining whether a visual depiction of a minor meets this definition, federal courts consider factors such as whether: the image is focused on the child’s genitals or pubic area, the setting is sexually suggestive, and the child is fully or partially clothed, or nude. Marines stalked the women on social media and egged each other on to find and share photos, some taken in locker rooms and showers when the women were not aware, others shared by former boyfriends.The story was broken by Thomas Brennan of The War Horse.Neller issued a stern rebuke in a video to his troops.
