Bernama FREE MALAYSIA TODAY Tue, December 29, 2020

JAKARTA: The Malaysian embassy in Jakarta has condemned an alleged provocative act through a video that could affect ties between Malaysia and Indonesia.

In a statement last night, the embassy confirmed that the Malaysian authorities were investigating the video found to be insulting Indonesia, said to have been uploaded by a Malaysian.

“If the video is found to be uploaded by a Malaysian citizen, stern action will be taken based on existing laws,” the statement said.

The video, uploaded two weeks ago by an individual in the comment section of the “My Asean” YouTube page, features the Indonesian national anthem with edited lyrics that insult the republic.

The video has since been deleted.

However, it had already been uploaded to and shared widely on other social media platforms in Indonesia, drawing strong negative reaction from its citizens.
