PETALING JAYA: Police have arrested Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz (pic), who claimed that he was the person in the sex videos implicating Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.Bukit Aman Criminal Inves­tigation Department Director Datuk Huzir Mohamed said Haziq was detained at the Kuala Lumpur Inter­national Airport (KLIA).

His lawyer Ramesh Sivakumar confirmed that Haziq was nabbed at about 5.30pm yesterday.

“The police called me to say that Haziq was at KLIA. But when I arrived there at about 7.20pm, they told me that Bukit Aman had already taken him in,” Ramesh said.

“I am just waiting for more updates from the police. I am also not sure where he has been taken to,” he said when contacted.

Ramesh added that the police did not tell him why Haziq, 27, was detained.

On Wednesday, the Santubong PKR Youth chief posted a video

on Facebook of him admitting that he was one of the two men in

a sex video which went viral the day before.

He identified Azmin as the other person in the video.

However, Azmin denied this and described Haziq’s claim as a nefarious plot to destroy his political career.

A second video clip, which appeared to show the same pair involved, surfaced on Wednesday night.
