Sex video: Charge Azmin and Haziq, Lokman tells AG

Sex video: Charge Azmin and Haziq, Lokman tells AG

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam issued an ultimatum to Attorney General Tommy Thomas today; charge the two men caught on video having gay sex or face court action for failing to prosecute.  

Speaking near the Bukit Aman police headquarters, Lokman insisted that he has irrefutable proof that proves that the two men shown in the video were Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali and former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz.

“With the evidence we obtained from the UK-based firm, I hope the police can submit the investigation paper to the AG to charge Azmin and Haziq,” he said, before entering the police headquarters to give his statement.

Lokman said the video analysis was done by UK-based Verden Forensics, and they did not detect any digital tampering with the raw footage of the clips that had been circulating on the Internet in the past few months.

He had since instructed his lawyers to submit a notice and a copy of the forensic report to the AG for prosecution.

“I don’t understand why, even after two months, the AG is not prosecuting. If he fails to do so, our civil suit against him will remain,” said Lokman.

According to Lokman, the forensic report confirmed similarities between the person portrayed in the video and pictures of Azmin sent for analysis.

“Azmin’s hairline and his sideburn, his chin and left brow in the video matched the photo we provided to the forensic team,” he said.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigations Department Director Commissioner Datuk Huzir Mohamed confirmed yesterday that local authorities have received an analysis report of video that the Umno leader commissioned from a British firm.

He pointed out that his team previously tried to send copies of the video to the British firm through email unsuccessfully.

“The forensics team extracted the video from Pornhub instead,” he added.

Lokman emerged an hour later around 12.40pm, saying he was pleased by the way the police handled the matter.

“I am satisfied that the police are able to act objectively and hopefully the AG will be able to prosecute the culprits, both actors and those involved in the spreading of the video,” he said.

He also showed a stamp bearing the name of the investigating officer from the Bukit Aman Classified Crime Investigation Unit, formally accepting the original forensic report.

Lokman said that during his meeting with the police, the authorities asked him disclose the identity of the individual he liaised with in the UK to engage the service of the British firm.

“I told them it was my friend, Raja Petra Kamarudin, who suggested the firm,” he said.

Lokman had previously accused Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador of lying about the status of investigations into the case.

Hamid said the video was verified as genuine but cybersecurity experts could not conclusively identify the people in it.
