PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Azmin Ali has given his statement to the police on the sex video that has been linked to him, says his lawyer.

N. Surendran said that the Economic Affairs Minister gave his statement to the police on Monday (June 17) and that it was a matter of priority for him.

"There are obvious signs of an organised and systematic attempt to discredit and bring down the Minister with this false and malicious attack. The perpetrators had access to leaked personal data of party members, sophisticated means and a clear political agenda.

"We trust the police will get to the bottom of this soon, and identify and take action against the culprits according to law.

"He wanted to give the statement as soon as possible. Hence, the statement was recorded at his office in Putrajaya yesterday immediately after scheduled meetings," he said in a statement on Tuesday (June 18).

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

Haziq, who is also Santubong PKR Youth Chief, said that he was one of the two men in the video.

He also claimed that the other person was Azmin.

The Economic Affairs Minister has categorically denied the allegation, saying it was made to tarnish his reputation and destroy his political career.
