Azmin denies being in the sex video, threatens legal action

PUCHONG: The minister implicated in the gay sex video came out in the open today, dismissing the allegations levelled against him.

In a statement, Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said that the recent expose was an nothing but an attempt to assassinate his character and destroy his political career.

“I categorically deny this vicious libel against me.

“This is clearly the latest in a series of concerted attempts over the past few months to vilify me, which includes intimidation against the safety of my family and I in the final weeks of Ramadan, and vile and baseless accusations of corruption,” he said.

This morning, Muhammad Haziq Abdul Aziz announced via Facebook that he was the man caught on film perform sex acts with Azmin at a hotel in Sabah during the Sandakan by-election.

He also urged the MACC to investigate Azmin for corruption and added that the latter was morally unfit to be a leader.

Haziq is a private secretary to Primary Industries deputy minister Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin.

Denying the accusation levelled against him, Azmin said this brand of gutter politics has no place in New Malaysia, which is working towards rebuilding the nation through institutional reforms.

“I will not submit to these cowardly acts and heinous attempts to distract the public from pressing concerns of the nation and the successes of the Economic Affairs Ministry in planning and implementing national development policies that are sustainable and inclusive,” he said.

The PKR deputy president then urged the police and MACC to take immediate action on the matter.

He added that he had also instructed his lawyers to take legal action against those who made the allegations and others involved in the matter.

“I will avail myself to of all legal means at my disposal to expose these culprits,” said Azmin.
