Top Indonesian football official questioned in match-fixing scandal
Indonesia's top football official, who has been in the job less than a month, was questioned by police Monday over a match-fixing scandal that has rocked the Southeast Asian nation's domestic league. Joko Driyono became acting president of the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) in late January after former chairman Edy Rahmayadi stepped down in the wake of a corruption probe that has seen police identify more than a dozen suspects. Driyono was questioned Monday over allegations he was involved in destroying evidence of match-fixing, national police spokesman Dedi Prasetyo said.
