Police have sent a sex video implicating Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali to a private firm in the US for analysis.

Federal CID director Huzir Mohamed said experts in the firm would determine if the video is authentic and establish the identities of those involved.

“For your information, recently, a team of cops went to the US. They have handed over the video to the experts. The analysis report will be furnished to the police in the near future,” he added.

Asked when the police expect to obtain the findings, he replied: ‚ÄúVery sure before end of the year.”

Huzir said that prior to this, the investigation paper had been passed back and forth between the police and Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) up to eight times.

The latest instruction, he added, was for the police to obtain an analysis from a neutral expert.

In July, inspector-general of police Abdul Hamid Bador said Cybersecurity Malaysia found that while the video was authentic, the facial recognition process failed to identify those involved.

Yesterday, lawyer Hanif Khatri Abdulla, who has acted for Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, demanded an update on investigations concerning the video. – Malaysiakini
