Alleged gay sex video Malaysian minister attends weekly Cabinet meeting

PUTRAJAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The Malaysian minister said to be one of the two men caught on video having sex attended the weekly Cabinet meeting as usual on Wednesday (June 12).

He was seen at the Prime Minister's Office at the Perdana Putra Complex in Putrajaya, where the Cabinet meeting room is located, at around 8.45am.

It is understood that the federal minister had an appointment with Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad at 9am before the Cabinet meeting began.

The topic of the meeting between Tun Dr Mahathir and the minister is not known. The meeting, which lasted about 20 minutes, had been scheduled last week.

Earlier in the day, news broke that a man had confessed that the sex video was authentic.

Mr Muhammad Haziq Abdul Aziz, who is the senior private secretary to Deputy Primary Industries Minister Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, named the Cabinet minister in his Facebook post and said that he was not fit to be a leader.

 
 

Mr Muhammad Haziq also called on the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate the minister for corruption.

A video clip and several photos showing two men engaged in sexual acts have been shared on WhatsApp.

Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam has lodged a police report, urging the authorities to investigate the matter.
