Azmin Ali shows his total confusion
To suggest that Anwar, who was himself sent twice to jail for sodomy charges, has suddenly become super clever – even more genius than Mahathir in the reverse psychology game so much so that the police could not link him directly to the gay sex video production is quite a hallucination. The simple question to ask is – why did not Azmin Ali sue the pants off Haziq, who confessed to being the man in the clip?
In fact, Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, the man who shamelessly confessed as one of the sex actors, has openly challenged Azmin Ali to take legal action against him if the latter was confident of his own innocence over the sex video scandal. Azmin’s refusal to sue Haziq is being seen as an admission that the senior minister has something to hide, similar to Najib’s refusal to sue the WSJ over 1MDB scandal.
It doesn’t matter if a lawsuit will not do any good or just a symbolic gesture. If DAP Lim Guan Eng or his father Lim Kit Siang is being accused of having unnatural sex with another man, you can bet your last penny that they will instantly go bonkers and will not think twice about suing not only the accuser, but the hotel, its management, staff, bed, CCTV, TV and hamster associated with the sex scandal.
At the very least, Azmin should have sworn on the Quran that he is not a homosexual or bisexual, and that the man in the gay sex video was not him as claimed by Haziq, never mind such stunt could only convince gullible village folks. It’s absolutely bizarre that Azmin continues to bitch and blame the mastermind, but refuses to act against Haziq – the man who has defamed him.
Curiously, on Sunday night (July 21), Azmin claimed that he knows the identity of the mastermind behind the circulation of the sex video which implicated him. But at the same time, the Economic Affairs Minister said he would continue to cooperate with party president Anwar Ibrahim. Heck, he even warned media not to provoke him and Anwar as they have been together for many decades.
His statements came after Anwar agreed with the police force’s controversial conclusion that Azmin was not involved in the sex video. Actually, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Abdul Hamid Bador did not clear Azmin’s name. The police chief only said the gay sex video is genuine, but the identities of the two men in the clips cannot be determined, whatever that means.
Exactly how Azmin could continue working with Anwar, let alone bring back their old sweet memory of togetherness, if the PKR president was the mastermind? Interestingly, at the same time, Azmin warned that his loyalty has its limit. Was he suggesting that he could and might leave PKR and jump ship – if people continue to laugh and mock his homosexuality?
What type of grass has Azmin been smoking since the scandal exploded? He seems like a confused man who contradicts himself at every corner. Does his remarks that both Anwar and he have an unforgettable relationship indicate that the PM-in-waiting had nothing to do with the scandal? But if that is true, why had he also threatened to end his loyalty, presumably with PKR?
