Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has refused to comment on allegations by an Umno-friendly blogger that he has further video evidence to implicate the PKR supremo in a sex scandal.

Anwar, who looked calm when answering journalists, said he would not entertain such questions.

"Any issues regarding morality, alcohol, gambling, vice, cruelty, slander or saying (about) a bad character of a person I will not entertain, and refuse to answer," he said.

Later Anwar clarified to Malaysiakini that it is not that issues of morality are not important.

"Is it proper for those involved in corruption, murder, or consume alcohol to make such accusations and talk about morality?" he asked.

At his side was his wife and PKR president, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

Venue of video?

Blogger Papa Gomo had posted a clip over the weekend that he claimed to be an "exclusive" video of two men, allegedly businessperson Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Anwar, entering and exiting a lift of a building said to be an apartment in Ampang that was the venue of the infamous sex video.

On Papa Gomo's blog, the clip is edited to link the CCTV footage with the Carcosa sex video, showing the final minutes of the clip with the man, said to be Anwar, dressing up and leaving, with corresponding time stamps to suggest the sequence of events was continuous.

The CCTV footage had been mentioned in the case facts when Eskay and his collaborators were tried in June for screening pornography at the luxury Carcosa Seri Negara Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

The new clip also ended with an ominous teaser of another piece of footage, apparently taken on Jan 13, 2011 at around 8.30am.

The "new video" shows a man, alleged to be Anwar, in a bathrobe, taken from what appears to be a hidden camera.

The blogger threatened to release this new video soon, saying this was just a teaser and asking, "Where was Anwar on Jan 12-13, 2011?"

"Should we release this (new) sex video of Anwar Ibrahim...?" taunted the blogger.

A self-professed BN supporter, Papa Gomo had been investigated by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission for posting the Carcosa sex video.

PKR Youth's deputy information chief Rozan Azen Mat Rasip yesterday lodged a police report urging the authorities to investigate Papa Gomo .
