Indonesian Media Accuse Malaysia Of Stealing pendet Dance
August 26th, 2009

JAKARTA, Aug 25 (Bernama) — Malaysia has denied it has anything to do with the production of a 30-second video clip which briefly shows footages of the “Pendet” dance from Bali.

Deputy Head of Mission at the Malaysian Embassy here Amran Mohamed Zain said the claims by Indonesian media that Malaysia had stolen the Pendet dance was baseless.

Amran told Bernama here today that he had met Indonesia’s culture and tourism minister Jero Wacik to inform him of Malaysia’s willingness to clear the air over the issue, which has become controversy in Indonesia.

The issue is featured on the front page of several Indonesian newspapers, which not only claimed that Malaysia had stolen the dance but also tied the matter to various other issues.

A television station meanwhile showed a group of protesters in Bali, performing a theatrical dance depicting Malaysia as a devil out to capture Pendet.

Bernama learns that a company headquartered in Singapore, which produced the 30-second clip, had written to Indonesia’s culture and tourism minister to clarify the matter.
