Tempo News: La Nyalla Claims Prabowo Has Extorted Him for Rp40bn

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Former Chairman of the Indonesian Soccer Association (PSSI) La Nyalla Mattalitti claims that he was asked by Gerindra Party Chairman Prabowo Subianto to provide Rp40 billion for his candidacy in the 2018 East Java Gubernatorial election.

“I don’t have proof. But I dare to do a ghost oath (swear to death),” La Nyalla said to us on Thursday, January 11.

The ghost oath (sumpah pocong) oath is mostly regarded as the utmost oath that risks death or chronic illness if they lie about their innocence while wearing a shroud.

La Nyalla said that the Gerindra chairman made the request on December 9, 2017, at his home in Hambalang. Accompanied by his assistants Prasetyo and Sugiarto, Prabowo instructed the former PSSI chairman to provide the money before December 20, so that he could recommend La Nyalla.

La Nyalla claims that, at the time, he had prepared funds up to Rp300 billion, but he only wanted to hand the money over after he was officially registered in the East Java General Election Commission (KPU). Nyalla revealed that Prabowo refused his offer.

“He was so infuriated as if he was possessed. He wasn’t like the usual Prabowo Subianto,” said La Nyalla.

He claims that regional head candidates that are endorsed by Gerindra mostly do not come from the party itself. La Nyalla argues that this phenomenon proves that there were similar meetings like he experienced, which he said it was a proof that the party is purely transactional.
