Six more video clips featuring two men, one of them resembling Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali, has been released on the messaging platform WhatsApp.

Similar to before, over 80 members of the media and several politicians were added to a WhatsApp chat group in the wee hours of the morning.

The group entitled ‘Video Terkini Azmin (Azmin’s latest video)’ was set up at 3.35am.

The video was split into six three-minute clips and appears to be from the same video sent to reporters repeatedly several months ago.

Aside from reporters, several Pakatan Harapan ministers including Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu, Health Minister Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad and Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Salahuddin Ayub, as well as Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam, were also added to the group.

Following the release of the initial video clips in June, Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, who was the senior private secretary to Primary Industries Deputy Minister Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin at the time, had claimed to be the other man in the video.

The former Santubong PKR Youth chief claimed the romp took place in a hotel room in Sabah during the Sandakan by-election on May 11 and that the other man in the video was Azmin.

Haziq claimed that the video had been taken without his consent.

Azmin, who is also PKR deputy president, had described the video as a nefarious attempt to ruin his political career. Several quarters have also claimed the video could be a deepfake.

In July, Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said that Cybersecurity Malaysia found the video to be authentic but facial recognition failed to link Azmin to one of the two men featured in it.

He also claimed that the leader of a political party was the mastermind behind the campaign to tarnish the minister’s reputation and speculation was rife that it could be related to the feud between Azmin and PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar denied any involvement in the matter despite his political aide Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak being among those arrested in connection with the case.

Meanwhile, Lokman later claimed that the Indonesian experts he hired to analyse the video confirmed the duo to be Azmin and Haziq.

Police on Monday stated they have received a report from Birmingham-based audiovisual forensic experts Verden Forensics on the sex video.

The video was submitted to the British company by Lokman.

The report has since been sent to Cybersecurity Malaysia while investigation papers have been forwarded to the Attorney-General’s Chambers, both for further action.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Huzir Mohamed also assured that the case is still being investigated under Sections 377B and 292 of the Penal Code, and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Sections 377B and 292 of the Penal Code deal with carnal intercourse against the order of nature and the dissemination of obscene material, respectively. Section 233 of the CMA pertains to the improper use of a network service or application. – Malaysiakini
