Indonesia's sports minister Andi Alfian Mallarangeng says he's resigning after becoming the country's first active cabinet member to be named as a suspect in corruption.
Corruption Eradication Commission chairman Abraham Samad told a news conference Friday that Andi Alfian Mallarangeng is suspected of mismanaging the construction of a $122 million sports complex in the West Java town of Bogor.
Samad said Mallarangeng will be charged with abusing power to enrich himself or others, which carries a maximum 20-year jail sentence. Mallarangeng is also the secretary of the board of patrons of the ruling Democratic Party.
The commission earlier sought to ban Mallarangeng and two other suspects, including his brother Andi Zulkarnaen Mallarangeng, from traveling abroad.
