Hamid Bador : Sex Video Implicating A Malaysian Senior Minister Has Been Analysed And Proven To Be Authentic

The sex video implicating a Malaysian minister has been analysed and proven to be authentic, although the identities of the men in the clip cannot be determined, according to Malaysia’s police chief.

“The video and who are those in it are not within my jurisdiction. So we sent it to CyberSecurity to determine if the video is authentic and if CyberSecurity could ascertain who are in it,” Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said in an interview with Malaysian broadcaster RTM on Wednesday.

“The answer we received … They (CyberSecurity) said ‘authentic’ but they cannot be 100 per cent certain who are in it,” he said.

In a statement on Thursday, Mr Abdul Hamid said that a leader of a political party was behind the video, but did not identify the party or leader.

The video was produced by parties that were hired with “hundreds of thousands of ringgit”, he added.

“The outcome of the investigation by the Royal Malaysia Police reveals the existence of an evil alliance masterminded by the leader of a political party with the intention of embarrassing and tarnishing the reputation of a certain individual,” Mr Abdul Hamid said in a statement.

Mr Abdul Hamid said the video was probably authentic but that facial recognition tests were “not able to associate the perpetrator in the video with the individual in question”.

Mr Abdul Hamid’s statement did not identify the individual but the headline of the statement referred to the sex video “allegedly involving an individual bearing likeness to a senior cabinet minister”.

The sex scandal has deepened rifts within the ruling coalition and raised concerns of a turbulent transition from 94-year-old Mahathir.

Azmin last month said he was convinced the videos were the work of insiders in the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) party, the biggest component of the Pakatan Harapan alliance. Anwar and Azmin are the president and deputy president in PKR.

Anwar has said it was “slander” to suggest he had anything to do with the leaked footage.

Earlier on Thursday, Anwar brushed aside talk of a challenge from Azmin for the premiership and said he had the support needed to become prime minister.
