Haziq accuses Azmin of recording viral sex video

13 Jun 2019 / 21:04 H.

PETALING JAYA: The plot thickens. Cliché as it sounds, there is no other description for this ongoing saga.

Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, who confessed on Wednesday that he was one of the two men engaged in a homosexual act seen on a video that has gone viral, now says it was Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali who recorded the video.

In a post on Facebook, Haziq said he and Mohamed Azmin were together in a room at the Four Points Hotel in Sandakan.

The video shows two men in a compromising position on a bed.

The romp in bed allegedly took place on May 11, the day of the Sandakan by-election.

In response, Mohamed Azmin issued a press statement on Wednesday evening denying that he was one of the two men in the video.

A copy of Haziq’s flight ticket showed that he flew to Sandakan on May 9 and left for Kuala Lumpur at 1.35pm on May 11.

In another post on Facebook yesterday, Haziq alleged that Mohamed Azmin wanted the videos “for his own collection”.

“I know you are a sick man because only you could have recorded the videos,“ Haziq posted.

“I am worried that more videos will be leaked and the luxury you have as a minister is deniability whereas my future is over.

“You even have the Prime Minister pledging his full support before any formal investigation has been done.

“Only the truth can set me free as I am concerned for the safety of my family and mine.”

In yet another twist in the story, Haziq alleged yesterday that Mohamed Azmin’s political secretary Hilman Idham had asked him to deny that it was the minister who was featured in the video.

In an immediate response, Hilman admitted that he met Haziq but declined to say what transpired between them.

“I have submitted information on that to the authorities. Let the police investigate,“ he said after lodging a qazaf (false accusation of illicit sex) report against Haziq.

Putrajaya district police chief ACP Rosli Hassan confirmed that a report has been lodged by Hilman.

He added that investigations are under way.
