PETALING JAYA, March 21 — Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail backed Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today amid the emergence of a sex video allegedly involving her husband, calling it “just another one” in a series of “dirty tactics” used to bring down the opposition leader.

“I have gone through it all, this is just another one,” the PKR president said, referring to past accusations of sexual misconduct against the former deputy prime minister.

Anwar has been repeatedly accused of having affairs culminating in two criminal charges of sodomy in the past 13 years, one of which he is still on trial for.

“They say Anwar was involved with a man. Why is the video now with a woman?” she said at a press conference at the party headquarters today.

Anwar, who was seated next to her, had earlier denied he was the man filmed having sex with a woman in a hotel room on February 21.

He called the emergence of the video recording today a “scurrilous attack” against him, his family and Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

He added that he was at home with Dr Wan Azizah, their children, grandchildren and members of his staff, on the night in question.

Anwar was speaking at the press conference called after a video recording emerged today showing a man resembling a senior Malay opposition leader having sex with a woman believed to be a prostitute from China emerged today.

“I was told the face in the video looked like me. However, the stomach of the man was much bigger than mine,” he said while showing reporters his abdomen.

The 21-minute-long recording was shown to members of the media this morning 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.

This evening, Dr Wan Azizah said the call for her to resign along with Anwar showed “irresponsible motives” behind the video, which PR claims was doctored.

“Why ask me to resign? What did I do?” she said.

In his recently released memoirs, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had alleged that his then deputy 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.
