KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 — Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders denied today that the ruling coalition was behind the emergence of a sex video purportedly showing a senior Malay opposition politician in a sex act with a woman.

The BN men also questioned Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) defensive posture over allegations that the man in the sex video was a senior leader of the opposition.

BN Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin asked why PR had swiftly denied that the man shown was Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, when none of their leaders had even seen the clip.

“It seems very strange that Pakatan politicians are very quick to deny especially since none of them have seen it. Since it was only made available to journalists this morning. How do they know? Nik Nazmi was very quick to tweet that it was not Anwar.

“It was him saying that it was not Anwar, we from BN never said it was Anwar. We did not mention any names, but they seem very defensive about this. Maybe there is something there but I do not want to speculate,” the Rembau lawmaker told reporters in Parliament today.

A video recording of a man resembling a senior Malay opposition leader engaged in sex with a woman believed to be a prostitute from China emerged today.

The 21-minute-long recording was shown to members of the media by a man who only identified himself as “Datuk T”.

“Datuk T” said that the February 21 video was from closed-circuit television camera recordings found in a hotel room in Kuala Lumpur

PR has been quick to accuse BN of being behind the video, claiming that the ruling coalition had become desperate by shifting from major issues to personal attacks.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz dismissed PR’s allegations and said BN was often made a scapegoat for the opposition pact’s problems.

“Anything that involves BN MPs is a fact but anything that concerns them is a conspiracy. Make up your mind. Who is right or wrong? I think the public is clever now,” said the Padang Rengas MP.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi added that the federal opposition was suffering from denial syndrome.

“Well you know as the opposition, they are making comments on anything. They belong to a group called denial syndrome group,” said the Bagan Datuk MP.

While denying BN involvement, Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin also called for a police investigation into the sex tape.

“We are not playing up the issue and the government is not responsible for the video. How true is the video? We will let the police investigate on who is involved.

“I think it is not good if Umno or BN is involved but individuals and NGOs, we cannot stop them from spreading the videos but they have to face the risks,” he said.

Kota Belud MP Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan urged leaders from both sides of the divide to not aggravate the situation further unless the speculation is confirmed.

“I think people should calm down. There have been a lot of speculations. I’ve not seen the video. I’m not saying it’s true, but I think we should take a step and calm down, look at it rationally.

“If it’s true then it’s bad, if it’s not true, it’s also bad. Either way, we have to wait for the truth,” he said.

 He also said that the public should refrain from making comments over the matter on social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook.

“I would like to advise everybody, and I have been refraining from commenting about it on Twitter or Facebook because I think this issue is a very grave issue and it involves a very prominent leader of our country. He is a family man so it’s very personal.

“People have been poking me (on Facebook), asking me questions but I didn’t tweet about it. Everyone must calm down, as it’s a big issue,” he said.

In this morning’s screening, the black-and-white video had been broken into several parts, beginning with the politician, a woman with East Asian features, and another unidentified man in a hotel room.

The second part, recorded from four slightly different angles, showed the man receiving oral sex from the woman and then having sexual intercourse with her in several positions.

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, in his recently released memoirs, alleged that his then deputy Anwar had propositioned four girls for sex in the 1990s.

Anwar, who is currently fighting a sodomy charge in court, had immediately denied the claims, calling the long-serving former PM a “blatant liar with selective amnesia”.

Most recently, current MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek was forced to resign as health minister after admitting to being caught in a sex tape that surfaced at the end of 2007.

In 1989, former MIC secretary-general D.P. Vijandran was forced to resign as Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker after a sex video controversy.
