PETALING JAYA: Terengganu’s Kijal assemblyman Ahmad Said has dismissed allegations of sex scandals purportedly involving him, saying they were attempts to discredit him.
The Star quoted the former Terengganu MB as saying that “it is normal” for a politician to be associated with sex scandals.
“Previously, there were also many allegations on sex videos, and recently there was also an allegation going viral against a senior politician.
“People have become desperate these days and I don’t want to comment further,” he was quoted as saying.
Recently an old sex video and photographs, said to date back to 2009, started recirculating and making its rounds on social media.
The issue of the sex tape was initially posted on a blog before it was circulated online.
The Kemaman Umno division chief has been embroiled in a political tiff with his successor Ahmad Razif, after he was forced to step down as menteri besar in May 2014.
Last March, Ahmad Said sought to table a motion of no-confidence against Ahmad Razif in the state assembly, but it was rejected by the Speaker.
