SHAH ALAM: Selangor PKR chief Amirudin Shari has condemned the uploading of a sex video allegedly depicting a senior minister onto a pornography site, calling it "an act of despicable politics".

He urged for such action to stop as the issue has entered an "extreme and disgusting phase".

“At a time when the people and country are hoping for politics that brings about hope for change and development, the opposite has happened instead.

"Now, politics has become a platform for slander instead of being a bridge to help the people.

“Yesterday, one more slanderous video was circulated and uploaded to a pornography website. Such political move only mars the sanctity of our religion, tradition and culture of the people, especially the Muslims in this country.

“Politics should be healthy and offers ideas that empower the people and nation, not through desperate and dirty means.

"The plot of evil politics, and dragging the people along with it, should not happen in this era of New Malaysia,” said Amirudin, who is also Selangor Menteri Besar.

Amirudin, who is PKR central leadership council member, urged the country’s leaders to take stern action in bringing the culprit behind the spread of the video to book.

The relevant authorities, he added, must also stop the circulation of the video and issue a strict warning against those who intend to continue sensationalising the slander.

A few weeks ago, several video clips, which showed two men engaging in sexual acts, were distributed to the media by unknown sources.

Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, who was the senior private secretary to Deputy Primary Industries Minister Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, has admitted that he was one of the individuals in the videos and that they were recorded without his knowledge.

He also named Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Azmin Ali as the other man in the video.

Azmin, who is PKR deputy president, has denied the allegation, saying it was a PKR inside job to destroy his reputation and political career.
