KUALA LUMPUR: After nearly two weeks of silence, PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali (pic) said he would address allegations over a sex video when he attends a ceramah in Rusila, Marang, in Terengganu, on Friday.

He said he would not entertain questions from the media until then.

"I will refrain from commenting on the issue now as I will be speaking about it at the ceramah.

"If you want, you can come and listen to me talk about it," he said at the party headquarters here yesterday.

Mustafa is not contesting in the general election.

Asked if he intends to lodge a police report on the matter following calls from several quarters asking him to do so, Mustafa said he had left the matter to his lawyers to handle.

Mustafa also said he would defend himself in the lawsuit filed against him by Umno on April 23 on his claim that the party was the mastermind behind the video clip.

The video clip, which was first uploaded on several blogs on April 11, showed a man resembling Mustafa having sex with a woman in a room.

His lawyers from Awi & Co issued a statement the following day denying that the man was Mustafa.
