Police record Shuaib’s statement over sex video scandal


KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Shuaib Lazim, the last member of the Datuk T trio who exposed a sex video showing a man resembling Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim having sex with a foreign prostitute, has had his statement recorded.

Shuaib, who is Perkasa treasurer, arrived at Bukit Aman at 5.30pm yesterday - 24 hours after two other members of the trio, former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik and businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah - gave their statements to police.

Both Abdul Rahim and Eskay handed over the video recording as well as an Omega watch to the police as evidence.

Resignation demand: A group of PKR Youth members staging a demonstration after Friday prayers Friday in front of the Rubber Industry Smallholders Development Authority (Risda) headquarters at Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. Led by Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, the group demanded Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik step down as Risda chairman following his involvement in screening the much-talked about sex video.

Royal Malaysian Police Secretary Deputy Comm Datuk Ghazali Md Amin said in a statement yesterday police had arrested two men and obtained several items as evidence from them. He also said the two were released on bail.

He did not reveal their identities, giving rise to speculation that it was Abdul Rahim and Eskay.

He went on to say that one of them even disclosed to police the location where the alleged sex video was filmed.

“A team of investigators including a forensics team went to the location and conducted their investigation,'' he added.

However, both Abdul Rahim and Eskay have vehemently denied that they were arrested by police when they went to give their statements.

They said they were not told by the officers investigating the case or those who recorded their statements that they were arrested.

The men also claimed they did not sign any documents pertaining to their alleged arrest or release.

Inspector-General of police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said police were trying to determine the identity of the people seen in the video as well the person who recorded it.

“There are a few things we are looking into right now,” he said when speaking to reporters after attending the 204th Police Day celebration at Pulapol, here, yesterday.

As to why the trio were not arrested, Ismail replied: “What offence (did they commit), you tell me?”

However, he added that if investigations showed that the trio was involved and if there was sufficient evidence, then police would arrest them.

“Let us determine if they have broken the law first. We can always arrest them later,” he said.

Ismail also urge the public not to speculate on the case and let police investigate the case.

“Give us time to do our job. We are working on it as thoroughly and quickly as possible,” he added.

Besides the trio, the police also recorded statements from senior news editors and journalist from the media and news portals who were invited to view the sex tape by the trio at the Carcosa Sri Negara on Monday.
