Hilman: Azmin officially informed of meeting with cops, details yet to be confirmed

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Azmin Ali has directed his office to give priority to the police's request for his statement to be recorded, says his political secretary.

Hilman Idham said the office of the Economic Affairs Minister had been officially informed by the police on Sunday (June 16), seeking for time and date for them to take a statement from the minister.

"We are discussing at the office because Datuk Seri Azmin has ordered for this to be given priority.

"His schedule for today and tomorrow is packed and we are looking for the suitable time for this.

"But it will be either today or tomorrow," said Hilman to reporters when met at the Sepang police district headquarters on Monday (June 17).

Police are expected to question the minister and PKR deputy president over the sex video which had been viralled last week.

Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, who is the senior private secretary to the Deputy Primary Industry Minister, had admitted that he was one of the people in the video.

Hilman said the media would be informed once the date, time and venue for this has been determined.

Meanwhile Hilman, who was supposed to have his statement recorded on Monday said he was informed by the police that he was not required to do so.

"I had lodged a police report at the Putrajaya district police headquarters last week and had also answered questions on claims by Haziq that I had threatened him.

"Police said that my statement is sufficient for now and will call me should they require more information," he added.

Haziq had claimed that Hilman had forced him to deny that it was Azmin in the video during a meeting at restaurant in Putrajaya Marriot Hotel.

Last week, Hilman lodged a police report claiming that Haziq had filed a false report, which he said was a criminal accusation.
