Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman today expressed his disgust over the emergence of a short video clip on social media that depicts lewd WhatsApp chats allegedly between him and a schoolgirl.
While denying the video’s contents, he vowed to take legal action for slander against those behind it.
“This is clearly a slander. Disgusting defamation,” he said.
Malaysiakini had contacted Syed Saddiq after learning that an individual had lodged a police report over the video clip which emerged on YouTube over the past few days.
“If there is information on who is behind this video, please let me know. So that I can initiate legal action,” he added.
A check on the social media platform found that the 45-second video was uploaded on May 3 while the account under which it was uploaded was set up on March 28.
The video contains a WhatsApp chat between a number saved under the moniker “Baby Sadiq” and another person purportedly a schoolgirl and screenshots of sexually laced chats involving body parts and requests for photographs.
Gombak district police chief Arifai Taware when contacted confirmed that they had received a police report early this morning.
“There was a report lodged this morning. We are still at the preliminary stage of investigations,” he said. – Malaysiakini
