PETALING JAYA: Perak PKR leader Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak has been identified as the politician arrested by the police to assist in investigations into a sex video scandal that has embroiled Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.  

Farhash, who is the political secretary of PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, was nabbed along with two other suspects in Pasir Gudang, Johor on Tuesday (July 16), according to sources.

Farhash had previously asked Azmin to quit if the evidence over the sex video clips was overwhelmingly against him. 

Prior to this, Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, as well as five others, were picked up by the police as part of ongoing investigations into the scandal.

Haziq has confessed to being one of the two men involved in sexual acts in the video and claims that the other is Azmin.

Azmin has, however, categorically denied this.

Haziq was first detained at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on June 14, and three days later, the police set up a special task force, led by Comm Huzir to investigate the case.
