PETALING JAYA: Thirteen state PKR women's wing chiefs have urged the authorities to take action against those responsible for the recent sex video scandal.

In a joint statement on Friday (July 19), the leaders said that they stand with the principle that they have held for over 20 years – that the practice of “gutter politics” should be rejected.

“We unite to reject gutter politics, and now we hold the same stance to reject dirty politics and (we pledge) solidarity to the individual that was attacked,” wrote the 13 state women's wing chiefs.

They urged the authorities to take stern action against the mastermind behind the sex video.

"We urge (the authorities) to take stern action against the mastermind who directed and funded the dirty deed, regardless of how high (the perpetrator's) position may be.

"An act like this must not go unpunished.

“What will happen to the pride and dignity of this country if a criminal act like this goes unpunished?" they said, adding that if the act went unpunished, it might recur.

They added that it will disrupt the country's administration and cause a waste of public funds if it recurs.

The only PKR state women's wing chief not to have signed the statement was Nur Zarina Zakaria of Penang.

The 13 signatories of the joint statement are:

Ginie Lim (Malacca)

Nurhanim Mokhsen (Sarawak)

Chua Yee Ling (Perak)

Sharifah Norhayati Syed Omar (Terengganu )

Azlinah Zamli (Negri Sembilan)

Rahamizon Abdul Ghani(Johor)

Nor Hanazalmah Mat Yusoff (Kelantan)

Idawatie Pariman (Federal Territories)

Dr Daroyah Alwi (Selangor)

Rahimah Majid (Sabah)

Suraiya Hashim (Kedah)

Gan Ay Ling (Perlis)

Sitarunisah Abdul Kadir (Pahang)

 

On Thursday (July 18), Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said the sex video - implicating Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali - was likely to be genuine, adding that there was an evil conspiracy led by a leader of a political party to humiliate and damage the reputation of an individual.

He, however, said that CyberSecurity Malaysia could not identify the people in the video. 

"We received the analysis of the video from CyberSecurity. There is a high probability that the video is genuine, but facial recognition came back negative. It could not link those in the video with any individual," he said in a statement
