HULU SELANGOR: Two more individuals have been arrested to facilitate investigation of the sex video allegedly involving former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz and another man.

A 31-year-old man was arrested at a hotel in Glenmarie, Shah Alam at 11.45pm yesterday while the second suspect, a 29-year-old man, was arrested at 12.30am in front of a house in Taman Sri Andalas, Klang.

Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said the two individuals were arrested to assist in the investigation of the production and distribution of the sex video that had gone viral since June 11.


“Police might also apply for extension for those whose remand expiring today and tomorrow. If we need more time, we will apply for it,” he said in a press conference after the closing ceremony of National Cadet Police Camp at Kem Bina Semangat in Kuala Kubu Bharu here today.

Police had remanded nine people since they began investigations, including Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, who is the Perak PKR state chief and political secretary of PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

On Friday, the five suspects who were arrested with Haziq last Sunday had been released after their remand order expired.

Meanwhile, Hamid took to task some politicians who were pressuring him and his team involved in the investigation of the case.

He urged these politicians to cease and desist in pressuring him and his investigation team members.

“From the beginning, I had said that this (case) was a waste of time and resources, as the Inspector-General of Police, it is my responsibility to ensure that my men focus on the eradication of crime.

“Suddenly, an issue such as this crops up, which should not have in the first place. The sensitivity surrounding this issue is quite high, especially from non-government politicians , as well as pressure on me, on whether the video is genuine or not.

Hamid said pressure continues to be piled on him on the case and he considers it as nothing more then a waste of time.

“I urge them, if they want to play politics, they should do so among themselves … do not drag the Police into it, to the extent that the people are burdened.

“We have to incur additional expenditure to fly here and there (to investigate the case). Do not make an evil pact. Such a case should not be muddled by a mature politician”.

Hamid urged all quarters to remain calm and allow the Police to manage and investigate the case in an efficient manner.

“The investigation is not over yet. There are several steps which had not been taken yet. We want to investigate who is responsible and do not want to make a mistake in any action that needs to be taken,: he said.

“My advice to politicians, do not trumpet the issue, as it would only cause problems to the people, he said.
