You can sue me, Haziq dares Azmin

  • Philip Golingai

LANGKAWI: Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz has dared Datuk Seri Azmin Ali to take legal action against him if the Economic Affairs Minister is confident of his own innocence.


Haziq, the Santubong PKR Youth chief who caused uproar with his confession that he was the man in the sex video with Azmin, also challenged Azmin to lodge a police report against him.

“He should do it himself. Let’s have the entire evidence and details in the open,” he said.

To emphasise his point, Haziq spoke of how the police had recorded a statement from Azmin while his political secretary Muhammad Hilman Idham had made a police report.

Azmin, who is PKR deputy president, has brushed aside the sex video and called it a nefarious plot to destroy his political career.

However, Haziq reiterated in an interview here yesterday that it was he and Azmin in the video clips of two men having sex.

The clips, which surfaced via WhatsApp on June 11, rocked Malaysia and generated countless headlines.

Haziq, who was the senior private secretary to the Deputy Primary Industries Minister, has since been sacked from the post.

He stood by his words again yesterday.

“I am not a liar. I want the matter to be brought open in the court so that Malaysians can see for themselves the evidence. Malaysians would then be able to see who’s telling the truth,” said Haziq, who is a lawyer.

He said that Azmin had made wrongful accusations against him.

“In fact, I am a victim of the situation. If I am defaming him, he has all the right to sue me in a court of law,” he said.

“Initially I did not have anything against Azmin as I thought we were both victims in the case.

“I got upset when Hilman tried to silence me and Azmin accused me of being planted by Umno and Barisan Nasional.

“I never said anything bad about Azmin. He should lodge a police report and sue me if I am defaming him.”

He also appealed to the police to wrap up the case as soon as possible.

“The police took my second statement for four hours, 9pm and 1am on Thursday. I had to explain to them from A to Z on what happened as they said there was a gap so I had to give more details in my story.”

The interview with Haziq was held here as he said he wanted to have “a weekend getaway to calm my mind since I can’t travel overseas yet. That is why I chose Langkawi”.

Haziq, who appeared calm throughout the interview, said he wanted the truth to be out as “I don’t want to be in hiding forever”.

Police probe on sex video is independent, says Muhyiddin

By Teof Pei Ying 

KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has given his assurance that the police probe into the sex videos implicating a federal minister will remain independent.

He said this was despite Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s recent statement that the video was probably fake.

Muhyiddin also said a special task force had been entrusted to probe and verify the authenticity of the videos.

“I think that is the PM’s views of what he feels about the whole situation. We guarantee there will be independent as it involves the integrity of the government.

“As I explained a few days ago, there is a special task force entrusted to look into this matter thoroughly,” he told the reporters at the Parliament lobby here today.

He said the task force would probe the case from the legal point of view as well as verify the authenticity of the videos.

Muhyiddin said the task force was under no pressure to speed up the investigation.

“As I said before, we need a bit of time. They (police) have to do what needs to be done and hopefully, we will be able to establish the real facts after this team completes its investigation.

“I hope it will not take long unless the police need time to identify those involved and find them. But it shouldn’t take years. That’s not reasonable,” he said.

He said he would not make any assumptions on the case before the investigation was complete.

“After the investigation concludes, the report will be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC).

“The AGC will then review the report presented by the police before deciding on the next course of action, and whether there is a necessity for legal action or otherwise.

“So, I cannot predict the outcome as it is based on the AG’s decision,” he said.

Yesterday, Muhyiddin said the investigation into the sex video case allegedly involving former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz was still ongoing.

Last month, several video clips of two men engaging in sex acts went viral on social media platforms. On June 12, Haziq confessed he was one of the men featured in the videos.

He had also accused a federal minister of being the other man in the videos.
