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

The Inspector-General of Police said yesterday that there were hints of an alliance behind the spreading of the video on social media.

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

“No (we don’t know who the mastermind is yet), but there are hints of an alliance behind it,” he told a press conference at the Blok Melati police quarters in Keramat Wangsa.

Abdul Hamid said the police were still working to complete its probe.

“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 confessed to being one of the two men in the video and alleged that the other person was Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri 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.
