The report was filed by National Committee of Indonesian Youth (KNPI) chairman Haris Pratama on Wednesday (5/1) afternoon.
After receiving the report, investigators immediately confiscated evidence and examined witnesses on the same day.
"An examination was carried out on three witnesses, namely the one who reported the case and two other witnesses," National Police spokesman Brigadier General Ahmad Ramadhan told reporters, Wednesday (5/1).

In the report, Ferdinand was accused of violating Article 45a and Article 28 of Law Number 11/2008 concerning ITE as well as Article 14 of the Criminal Code.
Ferdinand has been in hot water after a controversial tweet that some people might find it offensive.
