Police Threaten Not to Permit Soccer Matches
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Police are not going to issue a permit for a soccer match unless there is an agreement and a guarantee that soccer matches - where there are fanatic supporters in particular – which commence without excessive violence. This statement was made in response to the recent three fatalities among unruly mobs of football supporters and the police.
"If we think it has the potential of causing a danger, we are not going to issue a permit for a public event or we suggest a different venue," said Police Information Officer, Snr. Pol. Comr. Boy Rafli Amar at his office Monday, June 4, 2012.
Boy said police would give a permit for a public event if the PSSI and the supporters have agreed to maintain a safe situation.
"Especially for soccer clubs whose supporters are fanatic, like Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya and the supporters of other clubs," said Boy. As for clashes between supporters, police will take care of the legal process against the criminal elements being committed. Regarding violation of soccer rules, PSSI will take care of the matter.
Relating to the death of a Persebaya supporter yesterday, Boy said police had not named any suspects. Police assumed that the death was caused by a push and counter push between supporters after the games. "We're still investigating if there was probably a physical contact," he said.
Earlier, Surabaya Police Chief Snr. Pol. Comr. Tri Maryanto explained that the death of a Persebaya supporter was caused by lack of oxygen.
