Foreign Minister Seri Anifah Aman was quoted by The Star Online as saying "small groups" like Indonesia's People's Democratic Defense Group (Bendera) should not be allowed to hold both nations to ransom. Malaysian Chinese Association international bureau chief Chor Chee Heung, again quoted by the Star, said Indonesian authorities must take action against what he said was a totally unacceptable attack.

Members of the fringe group Bendera, who have a history of staging publicity seeking protests against Malaysia over the most trivial of issues, also smeared the Malaysian flag, "Jalur Gemilang" ("Stripes of Glory"), in human excrement during a demonstration against Malaysia's brief detention of three Indonesian marine officers.

Heung said failing to prosecute members of the group would severely undermine diplomatic ties.

"We cannot continue to give in to the demands of the group that acted illegally as it will affect our relationship with Indonesia," he said.
