Sex video: ‘It was not at our place’

Bewildered by the undue attention it's been receiving, the management of a hotel apartment in Jalan Ampang, clears the air.

PETALING JAYA: The management of a hotel apartment in Ampang Hilir, where the sex video implicating Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim was said to have been recorded, is bewildered by all the attention it has been receiving.

This was especially since they claim to have no connection whatsoever with the sex clip.

“No, we are not the venue that everybody is talking about,” Lanson Place Ambassador Row Residences marketing communications manager Diana Ahmad told FMT today.

Lanson Place is a four-star service apartment located near several embassies in Ampang Hilir. It has a 19-floor building and four other blocks of condominiums.

“We were taken by surprise when the media camped outside our building for a good part of the day, some as late as 2am hoping for some sort development I presume,” said Diana.

She said the confusion may have been caused by a routine meeting with the police over security issues that coincidentally occurred when news about the sex video was still “hot”.

“We had about six officers from Kuala Lumpur police headquarters in a briefing with us on Tuesday. But it was about the security of our residents.

“We’ve had a several snatch thefts outside our compound lately,” said Diana, adding that the management has been asking police for a beatbase and increased patrols for awhile now.

“It was just an unofficial call from the police, but we were told that there were reporters from the Chinese papers who trailed the police all the way to our location.

“There was never a forensics team coming over at all. So, it’s probably some other hotel,” she added.

Diana also said that even their smallest room had a living room and kitchen attached.

It was reported that the black-and-white footage of the sex clip showed a small, sparsely furnished room with only an attached

It was reported in several mainstream dailies that police had visited the “crime scene”, believed to be the said hotel apartment in Ampang Hilir, after interviewing ‘Datuk T’, the three people said to be behind exposing the video clip last week.

Police from the serious crime division were also seen in of the vicinity of the apartment block during their visit last week. - FMT
