PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has advised Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari to cooperate with the police on the sex video scandal.

Utusan Malaysia reported the Deputy Prime Minister as saying this after the two claimed they knew who was behind the video that was circulated recently. 

“It's best if he and the Selangor MB cooperated with the police.

"This is because they seem to have information that could help with the investigation of the case,” she was quoted as saying by the Malay language newspaper.

She said this at the Sri Satria Wacana Ilmu programme in Putrajaya on Monday (July 22) after being asked to comment on a claim by Azmin that he knew the mastermind behind the video.

Amirudin was also reported to have said that the mastermind was someone who had suffered a similar “dark period” 20 years ago.

So far, 11 people have been detained over the case, with five subsequently released after their remand order expired on Thursday (July 18).

Among those detained are former PKR Santubong Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz and Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, who is Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's political secretary and Perak PKR chief.

Haziq has confessed publicly that he was one of the two men in the video and alleged that the other person was Azmin.

Last week, Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said CyberSecurity Malaysia determined that the video was likely authentic, but could not identify those in the video through facial recognition software.
