Farhash advised to turn himself in


SUBANG JAYA: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has advised his political secretary Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak to turn himself in to the police to assist investigations into a brawl in Ampang on Merdeka night.

Farhash, who is still at large, is the main suspect in the case which involved three other men.

“He should, he should (turn himself in).

“Not withstanding the withdrawal of the police report, he should meet the police.

“He has been advised, ” said Anwar, who is also Port Dickson MP, when met at the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Forum at a hotel here yesterday.

The three men who were allegedly involved in the brawl with Farhash had already presented themselves on Wednesday morning at the Ampang Jaya district police headquarters.

Anwar said he was not involved when asked by the media about the latest viral sex video implicating Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and former Santubong PKR youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz.

“I’m not involved, I don’t want to be involved, ” said Anwar.

In June, PKR was mired in controversy when a series of sex videos implicating the PKR deputy president and Haziq started circulating online.

Azmin has categorically denied any involvement in the sex video, dismissing the scandal as a “nefarious plot” to destroy his political career.

Meanwhile, 11 people were detained over the case including Haziq and Farhash, who is also Perak PKR chief.

All of them were subsequently released on police bail.

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

The case was being investigated under Section 377B of the Penal Code for carnal intercourse against the order of nature, Section 292 of the same code for distributing obscene materials and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for distributing prohibited content.

Meanwhile, Farhash could not be contacted yesterday and his phone was believed to have been turned off.

WhatsApp messages to him also failed to go through.

Farhash’s affiliates too could not be contacted.
