PETALING JAYA: The father of Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz doesn't think his son is the person in the sex video purportedly with Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.
The Sun reported that Abdul Aziz Ibrahim, 53, was in shock following his son's confession.
He believes his son is straight, and not gay.
“I watched both the confession and the lewd videos. The latter appears to be shady, and I don’t think that’s my son.
“However, I watched the confession video a few times because I was convinced it was not my son.
"I was analysing the video, looking at his posture, his movement and his tone, hoping it was fake,” he was quoted as saying by the Sun.
Abdul Aziz said his son was a “very nice” man and that he only managed to communicate with him yesterday.
On Wednesday (June 12), Haziq admitted that he was the other individual seen in a sex video, which has been making its rounds on social media and WhatsApp.
Haziq is also the senior private secretary to Deputy Primary Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin.
He has since been suspended by the ministry and was given three days to respond to a show-cause letter.
He claimed the video was taken without his permission on May 11 during the Sandakan by-election in his room at Hotel Four Points.
Azmin, in denying his involvement in the sex video, said people should not resort to cruel and filthy acts of political sabotage.
