Indonesian Olympic Committee (KOI) secretary general Dody Iswandi has reportedly been named as a suspect in a corruption case linked to the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang.
According to the Jakarta Post, Iswandi was summoned by police for questioning over allegations of possible embezzlement and money laundering.
It was claimed the possible embezzlement of programme funding for the Games' public information programme "Carnival Road to Asian Games" was spotted by a Commission from Indonesia’s House of Representatives.
The programme is stated to have received around 61 billion rupiah (£3.5 million/$4.5 million/€4.2 million).
There are reportedly fears that the alleged embezzlement could result in losses of around 40 billion rupiah (£2.3 million/$2.9 million/€2.7 million) to the Government.
Muddai Madang, vice-president of the KOI, has claimed the Games will not be affected by the ongoing case and has given Iswandi leave from the organisation to deal with the proceedings.
"I think [the legal case] is an individual matter," he told the Jakarta Post.
"I hope it will not affect the work of the organisation for the Games.
"We respect the law and are giving Dody a chance to focus on handling his case."
Iswandi does not have a role in the Organising Committee of the 2018 Asian Games, having stepped down as its secretary general in June.
The public information programme saw events take place in East Java, North Sumatra, South Sulawesi, West Java, South Sumatera and Jakarta.
Organisers have sought to reassure the Olympic Council of Asia that preparations for the Games are proceeding as planned and will not be affected.
The 18th Asian Games are due to take place from August 18 to September 2 in 2018, with 10,000 athletes and 5,000 team officials from the OCA’s 45 National Olympic Committees expected to attend.
