    TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe police named Indonesian Soccer Association (PSSI) acting chief Joko Driyono a suspect. PSSI stated on its website Saturday, Feb. 16, that the suspect naming was not linked to the match-fixing case currently viral on the media.

    “[It] has nothing to do with the match-fixing issue. The allegation is that [he] entered an area secured by police line in Rasuna Office Park, Kuningan, Jakarta,” said the head of PSSI legal committee Gusti Randa.

    Besides Joko Driyono, the authority also named three other suspects in this case, namely Musmuliadi, Muhammad Mardani Mogot, and Abdul Gofur, who have no relation to PSSI. The police seized clothes, keychain, cellphone, key car, and DVR of CCTV that recorded their actions.

    “So, [the suspect naming] has nothing to do with match-fixing and the PSSI, but with the action,” Gusti asserted.

    He added that PSSI will still continue its programs currently running
