Umno supreme council leader Lokman Noor Adam was today questioned by police over a series of sex videos targeting Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali.

“I made a police report against those who circulated obscene video and those who acted in them but today I am summoned by Bukit Aman’s Criminal Investigation Department’s officer.

“They want to seize both my phones and search my home. Truly law of the jungle,” he said in a brief statement.

Lokman was among the earlier leader to issue a press statement over the video and also to lodge a report.

Lokman’s swift action had prompted Pelabuhan Klang assemblyperson Azmizam Zaman Huri to question whether the Umno leader had any role in the sex video.

“Looking at Lokman’s swift response, it is a well-prepared script. It was really fast, does he not sleep? The video came in at 1am (on May 11).

“I am intrigued by Lokman’s response,” the PKR lawmaker had said.

Lokman had defended his statement which was issued at around 10am the same day.

“How can I sleep, when the man in the video is said to be Mahathir’s choice as the prime minister to replace him?” Lokman had rebutted.

In the wee hours of Tuesday, a series of sex videos featuring two men getting intimate were sent to journalists and PKR members.

The following day, Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz claimed he was one of the two men in the video.

He also implicated Azmin as being his partner in the video.

Azmin had denied the allegation, stating that it was character assassination intended to end his political career. – Malaysiakini
