AS 5TH PIC EMERGES OF KISSING COUPLE, ZAIRIL GETS GUAN ENG’S NOD TO HANDLE ‘PERSONAL ATTACK’ AT RIGHT TIME: BE VERY CAREFUL OF ‘FAKE NEWS’ LASH BACK, NAJIB & ROSMAH

PETALING JAYA: A fifth photo of a man and a woman said to resemble two DAP leaders in close proximity has emerged.

This time, the couple is seen looking at a mobile phone with the light from the screen reflected on their faces.

On Tuesday, four pictures of the couple, said to resemble DAP Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari and DAP Youth committee member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud were widely circulated on social media.

Zairil, however, denied that he was the man in the photo and insisted that the photos were “fake”.

“No, it’s not me. It is clearly another attempt to malign me with personal attacks.

“They are fake and that’s all I have to say,” he said in a WhatsApp message on Wednesday.

In the previous four undated photographs, the couple were seated at a table in a restaurant with at least two other people.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Dyana Sofya said it was the third personal attack on her in two months.

She said no matter who was in the photos or videos in which she was allegedly featured, these were privacy intrusions into that person’s life.
