• Indonesia defiant after FIFA suspension threat


    JAKARTA: The Indonesian government insisted on Wednesday it would stick by a decision to freeze all activities of the football association despite a threat from FIFA to suspend the country from international competition. The sports ministry said it was only trying to make improvements and may dispatch a team to lobby FIFA president Sepp Blatter, after the governing body threatened to ban Indonesia unless it revoked its decision. The FIFA warning was the latest twist in a row that erupted in April when the association, the PSSI, halted the country’s top-flight league due to a disagreement with the sports ministry over the participation of two clubs.
