Anwar: BN using sex video to stay in power

KUALA LUMPUR, April 28 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said today that Datuk Seri Najib Razak was using the ongoing sex video saga as his main weapon to keep Barisan Nasional (BN) in government.

The opposition leader said the failure to charge those responsible for the recording that allegedly shows him having sex with a foreign prostitute showed that the prime minister was “using all instruments of power” to bring him down.

“The sex video is now Najib’s main strategy to stay in power. He needs to use pornography and control over the media because he cannot fight us anymore,” said the PKR de facto leader after recording a second statement in relation to the video this afternoon.

The Permatang Pauh MP also criticised the authorities for not taking any action after a second teaser clip of the video was uploaded onto broadcast site YouTube yesterday.

“Since when in this country can sex videos be distributed with no action or pressure?” the former deputy prime minister said.

He added that political motivation behind the video was clear as the “Datuk T” trio that released the video had demanded that he and PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail quit politics.

Anwar (picture) also pointed out that the video surfaced just before the campaign began for the April 16 Sarawak state election.

The 21-minute video was first aired to reporters at the prestigious Carcosa Seri Negara hotel here last month by a man who identified himself as “Datuk T”.

A few days after the viewing, it was revealed that “Datuk T” was a moniker that collectively referred to businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah, former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik and Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim.

During a March 24 press conference, Abdul Rahim said the video was exposed to show “a man who wants to be prime minister is not qualified.”

Anwar refused to entertain Shazryl’s challenge today to swear in a mosque that he is not the man in the video.

“Can you show me which Islamic law this is based on? Don’t know? Then no need,” he told reporters as he left the police station.

Anwar arrived in a four-car entourage at 2.50pm at the Dang Wangi police station with his wife Dr Wan Azizah and daughter Nurul Izzah.

The second teaser of the sex video allegedly featuring the opposition leader was uploaded on broadcast site YouTube yesterday and made its rounds in several blogs.

The 107-second clip, titled “Papa Nurul Part II”, has since been taken down.

Anwar’s lawyer R. Sivarasa said that Anwar was not asked questions which were relevant to his original police report against the distribution of pornographic material.

“From the line of questioning, you can see that instructions are coming directly from Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail,” said the Subang MP.

Former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim recently said another alleged Anwar sex tape had surfaced 12 years ago in 1999.

Zain had asked the police to investigate any possible links between the two tapes and whether Abdul Gani could be trusted to discharge his duties professionally because of his past involvements in various anti-Anwar episodes.

The police are investigating the Datuk T trio under section 292 of the Penal Code for screening pornographic material.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said yesterday that the probe was still ongoing but was confident the police would resubmit investigation papers to the A-G by this week.

He also said police would not hesitate to “expose the performer” in the sex video. - Malaysian Insider
