Malay sex scandal: 2nd part of video put on internet

Kuala Lumpur: The second segment of a sex video featuring a man who looks like Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim having sex with a woman has been posted on the Internet.

News of the posting spread like wildfire soon after noon Wednesday, but within an hour the video clip was removed from YouTube.

However, still shots from the clip were posted in several blogs.

At about 7.45pm, the video was re-posted in some blogs.

The clip shows a naked woman walking into the bathroom after the man, wearing a towel around his waist, hands the woman's clothes to her.

Then the man dries himself, removes the towel and wears a T-shirt before putting on a pair of boxer shorts. He then wears a pair of long pants and a shirt before walking out of the room.

Strategic parts of the man and woman have been pixelated.

Some scenes from the latest clip were printed as posters and stacks of them were left at a bus stop in Kuala Lumpur's Jalan Genting Klang area.

The posters came with captions in Bahasa Malaysia, language of the majority Malay population, the newspaper said.

Anwar's family reiterated that it was not him in the clip.

Saifuddin Nasution, secretary-general of Anwar's party, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), blamed it on the police for the release of the latest clip.

Police, however, denied the charge.

Police officials said they have got the video clip examined by domestic and foreign forensic experts.

The video was shown to select members of the media last month by two politicians and a businessman, going by the group name "Datuk T". Datuk is a traditional title similar to the British knight.

When the video clips came out, Anwar Ibrahim denied it was him and accused the government of trying to malign him.

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razzak dismissed the allegation.

One of the three Datuks - Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah - who exposed the sex video, has gave his DNA sample to the police, while another member of the trio, former Malacca state chief minister Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik said he was willing to face legal action.

Anwar, who has been accused of being the man in the video, allegedly with a foreign prostitute, is currently also under trial on charge of sodomising an aide last year.

This is his second trial for sodomy, the first being in 1998 when he was sacked as the deputy prime minister, convicted and jailed.
