KUALA LUMPUR: Police are closing in on the "alliance" behind the sex video implicating a minister, says Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador (pic).

The Inspector-General of police said that there are hints of an alliance behind the spreading of the viral video on social media.

"We have made several arrests (of people who spread the video) and some of them have been released.

"No (we don't know who is the mastermind yet), but there are hints (bayang-bayang) of an alliance (pakatan) behind it," he said to a press conference at the Blok Melati police quarters in Keramat Wangsa Kuala Lumpur on Saturday (July 13).

He was speaking to the press after attending a Hari Raya dinner function with about 800 of the residents at the quarters.

Abdul Hamid said that the police were still working on completing its investigation into the sex video.

"We are still waiting for lab results to determine the authenticity of the video.

"On the investigation itself, we have sent the investigation papers to the deputy public prosecutor twice. Each time, it has been sent back for further investigation, the latest was on Thursday," he said.

Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, the man who made a confession on social media that he was featured in videos showing two men engaging in sexual acts and alleged that the other person was Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Azmin Ali, was detained at the KL International Airport on June 14.

Three days later, police set up the special task force led by Bukit Aman CID director Datuk Huzir Mohamed to investigate the case.
