What about sex tape analysis, MCA asks police.

Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam has threatened to sue Attorney-General Tommy Thomas for allegedly refusing to prosecute two men seen in a recent sex video scandal that implicated Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali.

Lokman claimed charge sheets were prepared against the two men, but which could not be followed up due to political interference.

He also claimed that Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad had ordered a cover-up of the case which allegedly involved Azmin and former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz.

“So today I am delivering this letter from my lawyers to Thomas with a seven-day deadline for him to respond.

“If he does not respond, then my lawyers will take legal action against him,” said Lokman at the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) in Putrajaya.

The sex video in question depicted two male politicians in bed. It was spread to reporters on July 11, by WhatsApp.

Haziq subsequently confessed that he was depicted in the video and that the incident took place on May 11 at Four Points Hotel in Sandakan, Sabah.

Azmin has since dismissed the allegation as “vicious libel”.

Lokman claimed that his demand today was made based on alleged information from within the AGC.

“A friend in the Attorney-General’s Chambers has seen the charge sheets against Azmin Ali under Section 377B of the Penal Code, while charges against Haziq are framed under Section 377D,” Lokman told reporters.

Section 377B deals with the offence of “carnal intercourse against the order of nature”, while Section 377D deals with the crime of “gross indecency with another person”.

“Why have Haziq and Azmin not been charged in court even though the police have received a forensic report from the United States? It’s because Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has instructed that there will be ‘no further action’ (NFA) in Azmin’s case.”

About 25 people gathered when Lokman submitted the letter around 2.50pm to a representative from the AGC’s corporate communications department.

The investigation surrounding the case had begun since June and Lokman reminded that he had also handed police with several results of foreign forensic analysis of the video, but to date, there has still been no official confirmation on the identities of the two individuals.

He further urged Federal Criminal Investigation Department director Commissioner Huzir Mohamed to keep his promise to reveal the identities of those involved in the sex video, to maintain the integrity of the force.

In November, he said police have sent the sex video to a university in the US for analysis.

“Very sure before the end of the year,” Huzir had said, when asked for an expected time for police to obtain the results.

Earlier today, MCA spokesperson Chan Quin Er had also raised the same question to Huzir.

“Today is December 31. The year and decade will end in a few hours. We have yet to hear anything about the result of the said analysis, or even the name of the American university to which the video was sent for analysis.

“If the result cannot be ready by the end of 2019, there should have been an announcement regarding a delay and postponement. However, the powers that be have been silent throughout.

“Will the police be able to release the video analysis findings by today? Will the minister’s name finally be cleared, or will we see him charged for an offence under Section 377A of the Malaysian Penal Code? Or perhaps Section 377A is an offence the police no longer take seriously?”

Her statement is posted on the party’s website today.
