Sex video: We want to know its authenticity, who circulated it

KUALA LUMPUR: The people are interested to know whether the sex video implicating Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali is authentic or otherwise.

Speaking at the Parliament lobby today, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim also said the people wanted to know who was responsible for disseminating the videos to the public.

“There are two things – one is whether the video is authentic and secondly, who circulated it. The people want to know both,” he said.

Anwar said this when commenting on the police arrest of former Santubong PKR youth chief Muhammad Haziq Abdul Aziz and five others in connection with the case.

They are being investigated under Section 292A of the Penal Code for distributing obscene materials, which is punishable with up to three years imprisonment or a fine, or both.

They are also being investigated under Section 233 the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for the improper use of network facilities which carries a fine of up to RM50,000 or up to one-year imprisonment, or both.

Asked to comment on Haziq’s arrest, Anwar said he would leave the matter to the police.

“There are many questions about the video. Let’s leave it to the police to answer,” said the Port Dickson MP.

In the series of videos exposed last month, Haziq has confessed to be the person featured in the gay sex video. He claimed that he was having sex with Azmin.

Azmin, who is also PKR deputy president, however dismissed Haziq’s claims and had described it as an attempt to end his meteoric rise in politics.
