KUALA LUMPUR: One of the two voices in viral audio recording is that of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, claims Ampang MP Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin.
"I have listened to the recording. We heard Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's denial and I think last night, Anwar also said it was the work of some people. But being in PKR for 20 years, I believe that's Anwar's voice," she said.
“Anyone can do whatever they want. We just view it as part of life," the Housing and Local Government Minister said this when speaking to reporters after launching a charity event at the Ampang Glasshouse on Thursday (April 8).
Selangor Umno chairman Tan Sri Noh Omar and former de facto law minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz have called for investigations to ascertain the authenticity of the audio clip.
On Wednesday (April 7) morning, the audio clip of two voices sounding like Ahmad Zahid and Anwar went viral on social media.
In the recording, one voice was heard congratulating the other for putting up “a good performance during the Umno AGM” while the other thanked him.
Both allegedly discussed the possible resignation of Umno ministers as well as the exit of Umno from the Perikatan Nasional government.
However, Ahmad Zahid and Anwar have since denied the authenticity of the audio recording, and instructed their officers to lodge reports over the matter.
