‘Datuk T’ Refuses to Hand Sex Video to Police and Anwar

(Malaysian Digest) – An email, purportedly written by ‘Datuk T’, is being circulated among members of the media stating that the sex clip said to depict Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will not be surrendered to the Opposition leader, his wife or the police.

Instead, Datuk T is prepared to hand over the video and the Omega watch supposedly belonging to Anwar to be scrutinized by a “public commission” comprising media practitioners and NGOs.

The mysterious ‘Datuk’ said his decision comes after Anwar lodged a police report this morning denying any involvement in the sex video.

He explained that if the clip is handed to the police, Anwar would claim that the authorities are conspiring against him if the outcome of investigations is unfavorable to the PKR de facto leader.

“Therefore I have decided not to hand over the recording to the authorities. I will hand it to the proposed public commission comprising the media and NGOs,” the email said.

“I presume that he (Anwar) and his wife are not interested to receive a copy of the recording from me next Monday.

“Therefore I am calling on the media fraternity and NGOs to immediately form an independent public commission to investigate the authenticity of the tape.

“The commission can engage forensic experts from whichever country to verify the authenticity of the recording.”

He said he will also hand over the Omega wrist watch, believed to belong to the politician and said to have been left in the room where the video clip was recorded.

“The commission can send the watch to forensic experts to find out if DNA found on the watch matches Anwar’s,” he said.

The authenticity of the email is yet to be verified. It is said that it was distributed to the press by a senior journalists from an English-language daily several hours after Anwar lodged a police report.

The subject of the orginal email reads: ‘pls send top alternative media, bh, utusan dah dapat’ (Please send this letter to top alternative media organisations. Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia have received it).

Yesterday, a ‘Datuk T’ had organized a tightly controlled screening of the sex tape at the Carcosa Seri Negara hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

He refused to identify himself or allow himself to be photographed and did not he give away his contact details.
The statement said a copy of the tape would be sent to Anwar and PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail in seven days and they would then have seven more days to quit politics.

Anwar had called a press conference yesterday to deny the allegation.

The top leaders from Pakatan Rakyat also held a press conference in parliament earlier today to reject the allegation of Anwar’s involvement in the sex video.
