Indonesian police charge six people in stampede at football stadium

MOSCOW, October 7 – RIA Novosti. Indonesian police have filed charges in a stampede that killed 131 people at a football game in Malang, according to the Associated Press.

The tragedy occurred on Sunday after the match between the football teams “Arema” and “Persebaya” (2:3). The fans of the losing club rushed to the field. The police spraying pepper gas on the fans caused panic and stampede.

Three civilians and three police officers were charged. The head of the national police, Listjo Sigit Prabowo, said the defendants included the president of the Indonesian football championship, the league’s executive director and the head of security. He explained that two police officers ordered his subordinates to use tear gas. The third police officer was aware of the pepper spray ban but did not interfere with his colleagues.

The defendants are charged with negligence resulting in death or serious injury, as well as violating sports law and ethics for officials. The maximum penalty for such offenses is up to five years’ imprisonment.

Indonesian Football Federation (PSSI) General Secretary Yunus Nusi said at a press conference earlier that the International Football Federation wanted a report on the tragedy.
