I'm stronger now, says Azmin


KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Azmin Ali says he is now stronger than ever after the attack on him.  

"Why should I take a break? I have done nothing wrong.  

"I have come out stronger. God willing, I am stronger and I will continue to serve the people," he said.  

"I have a beautiful wife and very strong support from her and my children. And we had a small reunion today. I did not even know today was Fathers Day and I was given a pleasant surprise by my wife and children," said Azmin.

The PKR deputy president was commenting on calls by the Otai Reformis group, who said he should take a break from his governmental duties while the investigation on the sex videos is being carried out.  

Azmin, who was speaking to the media after a Hari Raya event in Gombak Setia here on Sunday (June 16), also said the police had not contacted him personally but had reached out to his office.  

"I can't dictate when they should contact me but as I said, I will give full cooperation to the authorities… at any time convenient for them.  

"I have done my part. I have lodged – through my political secretary – reports to the police and the religious department.

"Let the authorities investigate without any intervention and any political statement from anybody. I want to ensure the process is professional and transparent," said Azmin.  

In the past week, clips of a sex video involving two men have gone viral, followed by a confession by Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz that he was one of those in the video.  

He also claimed that the other person was Azmin but the latter had said that it was a "nefarious plot" to kill his political career.  

Haziq was arrested by the police at KLIA on June 14, as he was about to take a flight to Manila but was released with no restrictions a day later.
