Archived: Sex video: ‘Thai police colonel detained’

PENANTI: PKR has claimed that a Thai police colonel and his wife have been detained by the Malaysian police.

The colonel, according to PKR supreme council member Badrul Hisham Shaharin, was part of a team probing the allegation that the sex videos which implicated Anwar Ibrahim were made in Thailand.

Speaking at a ceramah here last night, Badrul told the crowd that PKR was tipped off by a reliable source that the video was made in Thailand using a clone.

Following the tip-off, he said a check found that the Thai police had investigated the matter. It was supposedly produced in Hatyai.

He claimed that the Thai police aborted the probe following a directive from Malaysia.

Upon receiving the information, he said Pakatan Rakyat executive secretary Shabrimi Sidek went to Hatyai to collect the evidence and bring back the witnesses to Malaysia.

However, Badrul said Shabrimi and the witnesses – the Thai police colonel, his wife and another unknown Thai man – were stopped at the Bukit Kayu Hitam border checkpoint by Malaysian police.

They were taken first to a nearby police station, then kept under custody in the Kedah police contingent headquarters in Alor Star.

Badrul said lawyers could not have access to the detainees.

However, he said Shabrimi managed to contact PKR’s executive secretary Raden Shamsul Kamar at 6pm yesterday via his mobile phone to inform about his alleged arrest.

Badrul then played the audio recording of the telephone conversation.

The media and the crowd were disappointed when PKR only aired the audio recording of a telephone conversation between Shabrimi and Raden.

Prior to this, it was reported that a Thai national, who was supposedly the clone used in the sex videos, would make an appearance at the ceramah.

At the same ceramah, PKR Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul showed a video allegedly showing Thai police forensic evidence apparently trying to prove that Anwar was not the actor.

PKR was to have revealed the Anwar look-alike who was the supposed actor in the sex videos at the ceramah last night.

Harakahdaily.net had quoted Permatang Pauh parliamentary representative Zainol Saad yesterday as saying that all the accusations against Anwar will end when the actor comes forward.

“Umno and BN will be trapped again. The kampung people will not believe this allegation again,” he said.

Zainol had claimed that the allegations are part of an Umno plot to embarrass the top leadership of Pakatan Rakyat.
