The men, ages 20 and 23, were arrested in March by vigilantes within their community in Banda Aceh, the capital of Aceh province.
Khairil Jamal, the lead judge, said that "the court has proven that the defendants without doubt are legally guilty of committing sodomy."
He said, "No evidence was found to justify and forgive them. Therefore, they shall be punished accordingly."
Neighbors barged into an apartment with the men and filmed them naked with camera phones, according to rights groups. The videos were shared widely in local media.
And according to CNN, the public caning would be done in one of the mosques in Banda Aceh. It is so dissapointing that the caning is happening, especially since May 17 is the international day against homophobia. We say: love is love.
