KUALA LUMPUR, March 23 — Perkasa says it did not play any part in the sex video that shows a man alleged to be Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim having sex with a Chinese prostitute, despite the involvement of its treasurer Datuk Shuib Lazim. Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said that Shuib had explained to him that he was only there after being invited by Abdul Rahim and had acted of his own volition.
“Just because one man does something, it does not mean the whole organisation is involved.
“If it comes up in the next executive council meeting, then we will discuss it but in fact he has asked many times before to step down as treasurer,” the Pasir Mas MP said when asked if Perkasa would take any action against Shuib.
Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik had admitted today that businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay, Shuib and himself were collectively the mysterious “Datuk T” behind Monday’s screening of the 21-minute sex video.
Umno’s former Malacca chief minister also admitted that both he and Shazryl were behind the video.
He told reporters at a joint press conference together with Shazryl that they intended to show that “a person who wants to be national leader and PM was not qualified.”
Ibrahim added that to be fair to both Shuib and Anwar, the matter should be investigated by a royal commission as it has become “a huge controversy” of national importance.
“Now Umno is involved, PKR is involved and even an NGO like Perkasa.
“Anwar has been accused but there is no proof yet. But if what Shuib and the others claim is true, then they should be honoured for exposing the truth,” said the former Umno supreme council member.
Abdul Rahim had also claimed that PKR Sungai Petani MP Datuk Johari Abdul had demanded money to defect after the latter was shown the video on Monday afternoon.
Johari himself had accused Abdul Rahim and Shazryl of attempting to entice him and other PKR MPs to defect after he had viewed the recording, which he said was of a person who only vaguely resembled Anwar.
He had suggested earlier today that businessman Shazryl was the mysterious “Datuk T”, and that Abdul Rahim was among those behind the screening of a sex video.
According to Johari, Abdul Rahim had also promised to bring him to see Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak after he had viewed the sex video.
Anwar has already accused Najib of being directly involved with the screening of the sex video.
