KUALA LUMPUR: The police say the results of an analysis to determine the authenticity of several gay sex videos implicating two PKR leaders is “on the way”.

“We are also waiting,” Deputy Inspector-General of Police Mazlan Mansor told reporters after attending the opening of the force’s co-operatives AGM here today.

Last week, it was reported that a task force comprising police, forensic experts and personnel from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission had been set up to look into the videos, clips of which have since made their way onto pornographic video sites and YouTube.

This followed the shock confession by PKR Santubong Youth chief Haziq Aziz that he was one of the two men filmed engaging in homosexual activities.

Haziq, who was later sacked as the aide to Deputy Primary Industries Minister Shamsul Iskandar, named Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali as the other person in the videos.

Azmin has strongly denied the claim and threatened to take legal action.

Speaking today, Mazlan also dismissed the spread of the videos on YouTube, saying such things “happen every day”.
