PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is leaving it to the public to make their own judgment on the sex video scandal implicating him and Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz.

Asked about PKR’s decision to issue a show cause letter to Haziq, a former senior private secretary to Deputy Primary Industries Min­ister Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin, Azmin said how he felt did not matter.

“The decision has been made by the party. But it is not about me or whether I am happy.

“You can figure out the perception of the public (on the case),” the

party deputy president said when met at the Prime Minister’s Dep­artment Hari Raya open house yesterday.

Haziq, who has admitted to being involved in the sex video controversy, was given 14 days to respond to a show cause letter issued by the party disciplinary board.

The board made four recommendations, including the decision to issue the show cause letter to Haziq, which was endorsed by the political bureau.

Meanwhile, a news portal quoted Azmin as saying that he had proposed to his party’s leadership to

sack Haziq after the latter was dis­covered to be campaigning for Barisan Nas­ional in the 14th General Election.

“I cannot disagree with you,” he said when asked why Haziq was not sacked when he was found to be helping Barisan.

“Yes. That is a basic question of logic being asked by many,” Azmin was quoted as saying.
