He said the news was spread through an account which has now been closed.
“Yes, the one who made the invitation was from that account. Meanwhile, now that account is closed, it can’t be logged in, it’s closed because of the noise,” said Hirbak.
Apart from that, continued Hirbak, his party had also ensured that no such activity would be held in Jakarta.

Moreover, it has been claimed that the event was canceled.
“Nothing, when the information appeared, we checked that it wasn’t there. There wasn’t anyone who made the event, nor did anyone apply for permits or notifications,” he said.
“What is clear at the time the issue was there, we already had all the hotels, those places weren’t there,” he added.
Previously, the ASEAN LGBT meeting committee decided to relocate the event after receiving several security threats from various parties.
The meeting titled ASEAN Queer Advocacy Week will later be held outside Indonesia.
“The organizers have been monitoring the situation very closely including the anti-LGBT wave on social media. The decisions made ensure the safety and security of the participants and the organizers,” the committee said in an official release.
