PETALING JAYA: Police have arrested three more suspects, including a political secretary of a high level PKR leader, in relation to a viral sex video implicating a minister.

The three, aged between 29 and 37, were picked up by the police in Johor yesterday.

When contacted, Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir confirmed the new arrests.

Previously, Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz and five others were arrested by the police as part of an ongoing investigation into the video clips.

Haziq, who confessed on social media that he was featured in the video clips showing two men engaging in sexual acts, had alleged that the other person was Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

He was detained at the KL International Airport on June 14, questioned and later released on police bail.

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

On Saturday, Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said police were closing in on the “alliance” behind the sex video clips implicating a minister.
