Takiyuddin: No video proof of duo

(The Star) – There is no video evidence of the two men who were issued summonses for indecent behaviour, says State Local Government, Culture and Tourism Committee chairman Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan.

He denied telling the media that the Kota Baru Municipal Council had such video evidence.

“What I said was that there was evidence (video) for certain cases but not in the case in question (the men who were issued with summonses for indecent behaviour at the Kota Baru airport).

“There are cases where we have video evidence and some are without any video evidence … I made a general statement on the issue on that day and I was not referring to the case in particular but in general,” he said after a gotong royong activity in his constituency Bunut Payong here yesterday.

Pressed on whether the council has the video, Takiyuddin, who is also PAS assistant-secretary general, said he could not answer the question and should the case end up in court, it would have to come from the council.

“If you (the press) do not believe me, it is up to the duo to take whatever action they want because what I said was about such cases in general and I did not particularly focus on the duo,” he added.
