PETALING JAYA: PKR deputy president Azmin Ali has taken note of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's acceptance of a police investigation into the sex video.

"After looking at Anwar's full statement, I acknowledge his stand that he has accepted findings of the investigation announced by the IGP that cleared me of any involvement in the defamatory video," he tweeted on Saturday (July 20).

This follows an announcement by Anwar at a PKR retreat in Port Dickson on Saturday, which Azmin did not attend.

"We are glad with the assertion that Azmin is not involved based on the facial recognition process, which has turned out to be negative as they can't establish the characters in the sex clip.

"On allegations that there are members and party leaders involved in the distribution of said video, PKR will not hesitate to take action according to the party constitution if any members are involved and convicted by law," said Anwar.

Inspector-General of Police Datuk Abdul Hamid Bador had said on Thursday (July 18) that CyberSecurity Malaysia could not identify those in the video through facial recognition, but deemed there high probability the video was authentic. He added that the police investigation were still ongoing.

In a follow-up tweet, Azmin also said that he also took note that stern action would be taken against any PKR leaders or members involved in spreading the video.

"This is in line with my earlier statement that all forms of gutter politics must be rejected," he said.
