KUALA LUMPUR: Police may charge the 'Datuk T' trio responsible for screening the video recording of a sex act involving a man resembling a prominent opposition leader, after the investigation papers are sent to the Attorney-General's Chambers on Thursday for further action.

Federal police CID deputy director Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said police did not dismiss this possibility as it was an offence under Section 292 of the Penal Code, to screen pornographic material.

"But it's not for the police to decide on this (whether to charge those responsible). We will hold a proper press conference on this once everything is completed," he said Monday.

Asked about developments on the investigation papers, he said there were still two matters to be sorted out, before the investigation papers could be sent to the A-G's Chambers.

"If possible, we want to submit the investigation papers by this Thursday," he said.

Asked whether police had the power to arrest the individuals involved in the sex act, he said police did not.

"There is no legal provision for the police to arrest and take statements from them. We have to refer the matter to the A-G's Chambers for any review," he said.

On March 21, the sex video was screened for several selected journalists at Carcosa Seri Negara, here.

The mystery of the 'Datuk T' trio, comprising former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and former Perkasa treasurer Datuk Shuaib Lazim, was revealed on March 23 when Rahim and Eskay admitted at a press conference that they had screened the sex video for the group of journalists. - Bernama
