A government agency being at the centre of an alleged conspiracy to bring others down is disgraceful, says an Opposition lawmaker.

Ahmad Fadhli Shaari (PN-Pasir Mas) told the Dewan Rakyat that if the Community Communications Department (J-Kom) is to continue, the government must be selective and thorough in choosing the agency’s head.

Citing a lewd video which recently went viral, Ahmad Fadhli said the incident should serve as a lesson to the government.

While he did not name names, Ahmad Fadhli alluded to a video that implicated the department’s former director-general, Datuk Dr Mohammad Agus Yusoff.

Agus had denied the video’s veracity, saying it had been doctored to tarnish his reputation.

“If the video is authentic, it is disgraceful,” Ahmad Fadhli said.

“If the video is not authentic and it is a conspiracy by (people) within a government agency, then that is worse as a government agency was made into a den to spread disgraceful videos and bring other people down,” he added.
