Female cop to face dismissal following leaked nude 'selfie': Indonesia

A female police officer in Lampung identified as Brig. RS is facing possible dismissal after her naked "selfie", a self-portrait photograph, was found on the Internet.

Lampung Police spokesperson Adj. Sr. Comr. Sulistyaningsih said RS could be dismissed for tarnishing the good image of the corps.

"We are investigating why she made such a reckless decision," she said on Tuesday.

Copies of RS's selfie began circulating on popular social networking site Facebook late on Sunday.

In the photo, the naked woman is seen photographing herself in a mirror using a smartphone.

In other pictures, which surfaced online soon after, a police uniform could be seen in the background, fueling suspicion that the woman in the pictures was RS.

After learning about the pictures, the Lampung Police on Monday suspended RS from her position as personal secretary to Lampung Police chief Brig. Gen. Heru Winarko.

Heru said that investigators from the Lampung Police's Internal Affairs division had launched a probe to verify the authenticity of the photos.
