PKR Youth: Let cops handle sex video, party disciplinary board should not get involved


JOHOR BARU: PKR Youth chief Akmal Nasir (pic) says to let the police investigate the sex video implicating a federal minister, including how it was circulated on social media.

The Johor Baru MP said the PKR disciplinary board should not get involved, adding that he was confident that the police will conduct a thorough investigation into the case.

“The PKR disciplinary board should not get involved because we do not have the authority to seize all mobile phones belonging to our members.

“Let the police investigate as they have the authority to do so,” Akmal said when met during the Johor Baru parliamentary Hari Raya open house at Taman Sinar Harapan here Sunday (June 16).

He was commenting after PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali said the party disciplinary board needs to find out how those who circulated the videos gained access to the phone numbers of party officers.

Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, who claimed that he and Azmin were the two seen in the viral sex videos, was arrested at KLIA on June 14, as he was about to take a flight to Manila.

He was released the next day and several PKR members were seen with him upon his release.

Azmin had denied he was the one in the video, saying that this was a plot to end his political career.

Prime Minister and Pakatan Harapan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and PKR leaders, including party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, had denounced the sex video as "gutter politics".
