ROSMAH BEHIND ZAIRIL-DYANA SMUT PICS ‘EXPOSE’? DOES THIS NEED ‘SD’ TOO, ASKS HER AIDE AS DAP MULLS ZAIRIL, DYANA’S FATE

Penang DAP has yet to hear from Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari over widely circulated photographs allegedly depicting him and party member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud sharing an intimate moment.

Chow Kon Yeow, the Penang DAP leader, said he will ask Zairil to “explain the matter” soon and advised the latter to address the media.

On whether Penang DAP leaders would be discussing whether the photographs would affected Zairil’s candidacy, Chow said this discussion would take place “if necessary”.

Hardworking & committed

Meanwhile, Perak DAP leader Nga Kor Ming said Dyana Sofya’s candidacy for the Teluk Intan parliamentary seat in the next general election will be decided by the party’s national leadership.

“I leave it to the party leadership to decide. Zairil has repeatedly denied (the earlier photographs) but photos keep coming up so it is best for the media to get it straight from the horse’s mouth,” Nga told Malaysiakini.

“Dyana has been active in Teluk Intan and is there every week to be part of the programme rakyat together with our (Pasir Bedamar) assemblyperson Terence Naidu. She is very committed to serve the rakyat of Teluk Intan,” he said.

Several newspapers today published a series of photographs which depicted a man and a woman at a restaurant which resembled Zairil and Dyana Sofya. One of the photos appear to depict the duo kissing.

This was not the first time photos, allegedly depicting the duo, had surfaced.

Zairil, who is married, earlier denied he is the man shown intimately dancing with a woman resembling Dyana in the second set of photographs and videos that were circulated on the Internet in March.

‘Personal and vindictive’

Dyana, who was once party veteran Lim Kit Siang’s assistant, lost to Gerakan president Mah Siew Keong in the Teluk Intan by-election in 2014.

While Zairil has ignored media request for comments, Dyana did not confirm nor deny that she is the woman in the latest photographs.

“This is the third personal attack within two months, I assume the general election must be very near.
“No matter who is in the photos and videos in which I allegedly feature, these are major privacy intrusions into that person’s life. I am sad that our political culture has gone to this,” she said in a statement.

Dyana also sought to draw attention away from the “personal and vindictive attacks” on her work in Teluk Intan, including to seek funds for a Women’s Development Centre and to repair a jetty there.

NOT ALWAYS TRUTHFUL RIZAL

The photographs, the third set to be circulated on the Internet to allege that the duo are having an affair, were also posted by Rizal Mansor, an aide to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s wife Rosmah Mansor.

“Does this need a statutory declaration, too?” Rizal asked in a Facebook posting.
