Police are investigating a case where a martial arts expert was able to break her underage lesbian lover out of protective custody where she was being “cured” of her attraction to women.

The story centers around Tn, 15, who began martial arts lessons with her taekwondo teacher, Sj, 26, two years ago.

Tn’s father, Mb, was quoted by as saying that nobody became suspicious when the pair became friends until Tn left home for a month to live with Sj.

When she returned home in July, her parents asked the National Commission for Child Protection (Komnas Anak) for help to “cure” their daughter’s sexual orientation and agreed to place her in the commission’s care.

Tn was placed in protective custody to undergo sexual orientation therapy but Sj was able to find out where Tn was hidden and managed to remove the girl from the shelter on Sept. 17, the first day of Idul Fitri religious celebrations.

Komnas Anak chairman Arist Merdeka Sirait confirmed details of the escape, blaming the shelter’s security officers.

“The security officers were negligent because they did not know that somebody was taking a child away,” he told

Arist said Tn had admitted that she had fallen in love with Sj and had “sexual intercourse.”

He urged police to find and arrest Sj because she had abducted a child.

Though police are investigating, it remains to be seen whether Sj can be charged with any offense.
