President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has instructed Youth and Sports Affairs Minister Andi Mallarangeng to file a protest to the Asean Football Federation (AFF) following the use of laser beams by Malaysian supporters to distract the visibility of Indonesian players in the AFF Cup finals first leg.
However, the President called on Indonesian supporters not to use laser beam when Indonesia becomes the host of the second leg on Wednesday. Go here
"Let's be a country that upholds a fair play," he said.

Well this is not the first time Laser Beams are being used by Spectators against players..

FIFA acts on fan with laser beam at Argentina game
JOHANNESBURG – FIFA says it asked stadium security to intervene after a spectator targeted a laser beam at the field during Argentina’s World Cup match against Nigeria.
The bright green light was aimed at players and Argentina coach Diego Maradona during Saturday’s match in Johannesburg.
FIFA says it noticed the beam immediately and alerted security staff at Ellis Park.
FIFA was concerned by fans using laser pens at qualifying matches. It fined the Greek football federation 25,000 Swiss francs ($21,800; (EURO)18,000) after beams were directed at opposing Switzerland and Israel players.

Lyon fined for Ronaldo laser beam
Ronaldo came close to scoring at Lyon with a vicious free-kick
Uefa has fined Lyon £2,520 after Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo was targeted with a laser pen during their Champions League tie last month.
The incidents at the Stade Gerland both before and during the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie on 20 February were reported by United.
And Uefa's Control and Disciplinary Committee imposed the fine for "incidents of an unsporting nature".
There was no suggestion Ronaldo's health could have been affected.
Uefa made the decision after studying reports from referee Luis Medina Cantalejo and Uefa delegate Jan Damgaard.
The game ended in a 1-1 draw but United went through 2-1 on aggregate.

More of similar cases here

I don't think there is a need for the Indonesians to complain to AFF for this incident, pretty clear cut...the game was almost stopped at the 54th minute

AFF should have acted like what FIFA and UEFA have done in both the incidents i've linked above
