Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The National Police will question Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) tomorrow.

"It will be around 9-10 AM," National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said in Jakarta on Monday (11/21).

National Police named Ahok as a suspect in a blasphemy case last week. The agency also decided to prevent him from travelling abroad.

Several Islamic organizations reported Ahok last month after he made comments about the Koran.

"We will submit the case to the court," National Police chief Gen. Tito Karnavian stated.

Ahok will still take part in the Jakarta gubernatorial election. He will compete against Anies Baswedan and Agus Harimurti yudhoyono.
