KUALA LUMPUR - The probe to determine the authenticity of the sex video allegedly implicating Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is still ongoing, says Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Mazlan Mansor.

He said the task force formed to investigate the matter was still analysing the video, adding that there was no time frame or deadline to complete the investigation.

"We have already taken statements from eight individuals to help with investigations into the case.

"Our investigation is across the board; anyone who we feel is needed to help in the investigation will be called up," he told reporters at Bukit Aman yesterday.

Mazlan said those who would be called in for questioning do not only involve PKR members.

"We will bring in anyone to record their statements if it is necessary for our investigations," he said.

In the past week, clips of a sex video involving two men have gone viral, followed by a confession by Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, who is the Santubong PKR Youth chief, that he was one of the men in the video.

He claimed that the other person was Azmin, who is Economic Affairs Minister and PKR deputy president.

Azmin had categorically denied the allegation, saying it was made to tarnish his reputation and destroy his political career.

Haziq is being investigated under four charges, including Section 377B of the Penal Code for carnal intercourse against the order of nature and Section 292 for distributing obscene materials.
