Top cop slams politicking over gay sex video probe

Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador launches the national police cadet corps camp at Kuala Kubu Bharu today.

HULU SELANGOR: The country’s top cop has hit out at the constant politicking over the police investigations into the gay sex video scandal.

Speaking to reporters after an event here today, Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador also revealed that two more people have been arrested in the probe, bringing the total number detained so far to 11.

He lamented that some irresponsible parties had nothing better to do than politicking all day and night.

“I announced the results of the (video) analysis, then some get upset with me. Let us carry out our duties more efficiently.

“Politicians have to be responsible. If you want to fight, let it be in a teacup, so if there is a storm, let be it contained. Fighting on social media is a waste of time.”

On Thursday, Hamid revealed that viral video clips showing two men engaging in sex acts were most likely authentic although the identities of the men could not be determined.

He had also revealed that an “evil pact” masterminded by the leader of a political party was behind the release of the videos.

On when the police will question the alleged mastermind, Hamid said investigations had yet to be completed and that it was a long process.

“Some people say the police are not efficient. They have to understand, the processes to establish what is called an evil pact, we must get to the root of it.”

He also revealed that the two who were the latest to be arrested were detained in Shah Alam.

“I understand there are some whose remand ends tomorrow,” he said after officiating the national police cadet corps camp at Kuala Kubu Bharu.

The 11 people arrested so far include former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Aziz, who admitted to being one of the men in the video and who named Azmin as the other person.

Azmin has strongly rejected the claim.

Another person detained is Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, the political secretary to PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.
