JAKARTA: The Indonesian National Police has said that a facial recognition analysis has confirmed that a naked woman who appeared in sex chats allegedly involving Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) leader Rizieq Shihab is female activist Firza Husein.
Hery Cahyono, a face recognition expert from the police's Indonesia Automatic Fingerprints Identification System (Inafis) division, said the authorities used several methods, including biometrics, to check whether the woman who appeared in the sex chats was really Firza.
Earlier this year, the police summoned Firza for questioning after screenshots of what appears to be steamy Whats App chats between Rizieq and Firza were uploaded to the Internet.
Firza, who was a coordinator of the Solidaritas Sahabat Cendana foundation, which is connected to the family of former president Soeharto, was reportedly having a relationship with the married man.

- HAZIM FAUZI/The Star KUALA LUMPUR: It was a seemingly innocent “friend” request on social media from an attractive woman, and Lim, a 20-year-old student, thought it harmless enough to accept.
The thing is that I have really felt safer and so much better since defriending him.I confronted this boy, and he apologized and said it wasn’t entirely true, that the bodies weren’t half-naked, but I didn’t believe him. Now it’s been almost 20 years later, and I had accepted his friend request years ago on Facebook because I felt like I should be polite.For years I blocked his access to my pictures and have always been super worried about things I post."The automatic algorithm system shows that all those pictures match.The system would refuse to (report a match) if the pictures were from two different people," Hery said as quoted by on Tuesday.
