A lesbian martial arts expert has staged a jailbreak to free her under age female lover from protective custody where she was being "cured" of her attraction to women, according to reports.

Police are investigating the escape of the 15-year-old girl, who allegedly admitted to having a sexual relationship with her 26-year-old taekwondo teacher in east Jakarta.
The girl, Tn, who comes from a community that only uses one name, left home to live with her teacher, Sj, for a month.
The girl's father called in the National Commission for Child Protection (Komnas Anak) to "cure" his daughter's sexual orientation and agreed to place her in protective custody.
Sj found out where Tn was being detained and was able to break her out on September 17, the first day of the Idul Fitri religious celebrations.
"The security officers were negligent because they did not know that somebody was taking a child away," Komnas Anak chairman Arist Merdeka Sirait explained.
Mr Arist said that Tn had admitted to a sexual relationship with Sj. Police are investigating, but it is not clear whether Sj can be charged with any offence.
I don't know what to think about that.
I think it would make a great movie.
I'm guessing she didn't break into the facility with a tornado kick, so I think this is another case of 'someone does something whilst being a martial artist'.
Of course she didn't; none of the guards were on horses.

I was curious as you never know with other countries what the age of consent is so here it is from wiki
In Indonesia the age of consent for heterosexual sexual activity is 19 years for males and 16 years for females. The age of consent for homosexuals is 18.
Too be honest I was a little surprised that they have an age of consent for homosexuals. With Indonesia having the largest population of Muslims in the world I would have though it would have been illegal. I guess their republic is more secular than I would have initially suspected.
Well since the girl was taken into custody to be "cured" of her homosexuality, I dont think they are out of the backwaters just yet.
I am more surprised that they were not killed out of hand, and I am suspicious about the reasoning as to why the lady was able to overpower the guards. It is the end of Ramadan, maybe they were weak from fasting.
This sounds like an awesome skinamax/action/b movie.
