KINGSTON, Ont. -- A local teacher now overseas has been detained indefinitely in Indonesia as officials investigate the alleged gang rape of a six-year-old student at the school where he taught, according to his brother.

Allan Dee, a Canadian citizen originally from Kingston, is unable to leave the country after being named as a witness in a sexual abuse investigation at the Jakarta International School (JIS), where he works as a pre-school teacher.

Murray Dee, Allan's brother, told QMI Agency that his brother had an 11-hour interview with investigators Monday following the arrest of Canadian school administrator Neil Bantleman last week.

Jakarta Police named Bantleman and Indonesian teaching assistant Ferdinand Tjiong as suspects in the case July 10, though they are not charged. Both deny the allegations.

Allan isn't considered a suspect, Murray Dee said, but he's essentially stuck in limbo awaiting the end of the investigation.
