DR Mahathir Mohamad last night dismissed the latest sex clip controversy involving Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali and suggested at the rate these videos is produced, he could appear in one, too.
The prime minister said the authenticity of the clips is doubtful because many parties now are good at editing and producing pictures and videos like these.
“I don’t think this (videos and pictures) is true. This is put up by somebody with a political agenda. If you are going to lose, you see others likely to win, you show pornographic pictures. If it is going to be like that, every day can show pornographic pictures.
“After this you will see my pictures. Don’t do these dirty things. Keep politics a little bit cleaner,” he told reporters after attending the Malam Sejuta Kenangan event organised by Bersatu leaders at the Setia City Convention Centre in Shah Alam yesterday.
“This boy admitted, it is deliberate. Otherwise, he would not have admitted. Usually, the individual concerned would be shy to admit, but this one is not shy. What is the purpose?”
Asked whether he had met with Azmin on the video, Dr Mahathir said they met at the usual Wednesday cabinet meeting.
Meanwhile, asked on the power struggles in PKR following the sexual video, Dr Mahathir said he didn’t know about it.
“Such a method (dissemination of the sex video) should not happen in Malaysia. It’s too dirty,” he said curtly.
Azmin yesterday denied the accusation by Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz who linked the former to the sexual video.
Azmin said the allegations are an attempt to destroy his political career.
