SHAH ALAM: Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari (pic) says there is no need to harp on the ongoing sex video issue as there are bigger problems to be solved.

"Everything was revealed, let's not continue with this issue.

"We have seen these 'stories' for the past 20 years. The people who did it are living in the past (ketinggalan zaman).

"We need to move on. That is our principle," he said after officiating the Bantuan Khas Anak Istimewa Selangor scheme appreciation gathering at the state secretariat building on Friday (July 19).

Amirudin also said "no man was above the law in this country" and action should be taken against those who had indeed committed wrongdoing.

"However, justice should be given to him to defend himself if he is confident he did nothing wrong.

"Let us not be cruel or treacherous towards people. We have other issues to address and problems to fix," he said.

The Star quoted Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador saying that investigations also revealed there was an "evil pact" led by a political party leader to humiliate and damage the reputation of a certain individual with the video.

On Wednesday (July 17), PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Anwar said his deputy Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali should resign if he was conclusively identified as one of the two men in a viral sex video.

Azmin, in response, said Anwar should do some self-reflection and "look at the man in the mirror".

Anwar's remarks prompted a statement signed by a group of PKR leaders saying that he should have not called for Azmin's resignation.

However, Anwar said some of those who signed likely misunderstood his statement.
