Police widen scope of investigation into sex video


KUALA LUMPUR (July 17): The police will widen the scope of investigation including the possible involvement of a state assemblyman in Selangor in connection with a sex video linked to a minister.

Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador, however, said the case involving politicians is considered complicated, and does not want to rush into taking action.

“Our investigations are comprehensive from all angles including who was involved in the conspiracy video.

“We do not want any individual to be wrongly accused and the investigation is conducted according to standard operating procedure guidelines before the investigation papers can be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC),” he told reporters here yesterday.

Abdul Hamid said so far, the police will conduct investigations into six individuals including former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, remanded for six days beginning on Monday to help with further investigations.          

Meanwhile, Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Huzir Mohamed said the decision to reveal the identity of the perpetrator involved in the video lies with the AGC.
