Ezam: Reopen probe on gay sex video, IGP

PUCHONG: Inspector-General of Police Tan Seri Abdul Hamid Bador should reopen investigation into the gay sex video that allegedly implicate Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

In a statement, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Movement President Datuk Mohamad Ezam Mohd Nor said that this due to rumours that the police have received new leads into the case.

“Please refer to my speeches made in Shah Alam (Feb 14), Seremban (Feb 15) and Kuantan on Feb 16.

“I received information that the police found new evidence pertaining to the gay sex video case. Therefore, I urge Hamid to probe the matter,” he said. 

Last year, Azmin was implicated in a gay sex video with former Santubong PKR youth chief Mohamad Haziq Abdul Aziz.

While Haziq had admitted to the one featured in the video, Azmin had denied the former’s accusation that he was the other party shown in the video.

The police had subsequently announced that they could not identify the ‘actors’ in the video due to its poor quality.

Training his guns at Azmin, Ezam accused the former of doing a bad job in managing the economy as he was sidetracked by the video expose and was busy derailing the power transition plan.

“Our minister is sabotaging the nation’s economy by trying to undermine the power transition plan, which is spooking off investors.

“Azmin is also plotting to establish a backdoor government. All these resulted in our gross domestic product to take its worst beating last year,” he said.

The former Umno senator then urged Hamid to do the right thing to save Malaysia’s economy from taking further beatings.

“Hamid is known for his no-nonsense approach. He even resigned from the police as he was opposed to the 1MDB scandal.

“Therefore, I urge the police chief to again put the nation’s interest first before anything else,” said Ezam.
