KUALA KUBU BARU: Police have arrested another two suspects in connection with the gay sex video allegedly implicating a Cabinet minister.

Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador confirmed the two were arrested in Shah Alam on Friday.

“I can confirm that we have made two more arrests yesterday (Friday) in Shah Alam.

“We will also be extending the remand on some of the individuals previously arrested in connection with the case,” he told reporters after attending the closing ceremony of the National Police Cadets camping event at Kem Bina Semangat here yesterday.

Bukit Aman Criminal Inves­tigation Department (CID) director Datuk Huzir Mohamed was quoted as saying that the six-day remand order on former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz and two other individuals has been extended by another three days.

So far, 11 people have been detained.

Huzir said police would also be calling in two politicians to help in the investigations.

Abdul Hamid said police were still in the midst of recording statements and taking action.

“So there is always the possibility that more arrests will be made.

“There are some who are asking why it is taking so long. They do not understand the work that goes in and the actions that have to be taken to establish this evil conspiracy.

“We will investigate it to the roots to see who is responsible so that when it is brought to the Attorney General’s Chambers later, they can decide who needs to face justice,” he said.

Haziq Abdullah and five others were arrested on July 14. They were taken in for questioning in connection with investigations into a gay sex video targeting Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali, sources said.
