KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 — The “Datuk T” trio were charged this morning for their involvement in the screening of a sex video allegedly featuring Pakatan Rakyat de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik is charged with abetting former Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim and businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah in screening the pornographic material at the prestigious Carcosa Seri Negara Hotel here on March 21.

Earlier this morning, the three men arrived at the Jalan Duta court complex here to screams from scores of supporters who had gathered outside from 8am.

Dressed smartly in neatly-pressed suits, the men waved as they made their way into the complex. They finally entered the packed courtroom at 9.17am.

On March 21, a mysterious “Datuk T” had screened a video purportedly showing Anwar having sex with an unidentified woman, believed to be a foreign prostitute.

Abdul Rahim, Shazryl and Shuib later claimed responsibility for the video, saying they screened the video to show “a man who wants to be prime minister is not qualified.”

Following police investigations into the screening, the trio claimed to have surrendered the original copy of the sex video to the police.
