Anwar says Najib, Hisham involved in sex video scandal
Tuesday, March 22 @ 01:01:20 CDT
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has accused Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein of being involved with the video screening which allegedly shows him having sex with an unidentified woman.
Both the PM and the home minister had yesterday denied any involvement of the police and home ministry over the emergence of the sex video.
“The screening could not have been done without the protection of Najib and the Home Minister. What’s more it was done officially in a prestigious hotel, where top news editors were invited.
“How was this possible?” Anwar told reporters today, after lodging a police report on the matter at the Dang Wangi police station here.
The PKR defacto leader said that he had proof to support his allegation, and later told The Malaysian Insider that the proof was in the inaction by the police over the viewing of the sex video.
“These individuals have committed all forms of crime-criminal defamation, intimidation, and the viewing of pornography in public.
“My proof of high-level involvement is that why no action was taken by the police on this? How can porn be displayed publicly? It’s protection by the police,” said Anwar.
The Opposition Leader also charged that Najib’s immediate reaction in denying any police involvement last night was “strange.”
“Najib has denied any involvement..before any investigation has taken place.
“Why are you so apologetic?” said Anwar to a rousing applause from the 60-odd supporters who were present here today when he lodged the police report.
Anwar has himself denied that he was the man in the video, and called the emergence of the recording a “scurrilous attack” against him, his family and Pakatan Rakyat (PR).
PKR’s top brass which included president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah, Sivarasa Rasiah, Latheefa Koya and N. Surendran were all with Anwar today.
PR leaders were on the defensive yesterday, denying that man in the video was Anwar, almost immediately after the video was screened to selected journalists by a shadowy figure who only identified himself as “Datuk T.”
“Datuk T” had said that the video was taken from closed-circuit television camera recordings found in a hotel room in Kuala Lumpur.
