Whistleblower Website Set Up In Indonesia

The Transition Team set up by the Ministry of Youth and Sports to change Indonesian football has come up with a website to encourage whistleblowers to report anything fishy they have encountered in the world of football.

The website encourages people to report suspicious happenings on the field, rumours of match fixing, players waiting for salaries to be paid, dodgy performances by match officials and other stuff.

The folks behind the website they have been inundated with people providing information about remains to be seen whether any information gets released to the general public though the site does claim summaries may well be released once in a while.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out. Does match fixing exist in Indonesian football? Has there been instances where match officials have been intimidated to provide the correct result? Will we ever find out or will any tales just be used as leverage in the future?

On paper a good idea and one long overdue. It is a shame it had to come from the government...
