SHAH ALAM - Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has dismissed the lewd videos implicating Economics Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, saying that these have been "cooked up".

"This is done by people who have political agendas," said Dr Mahathir.

He added people were able to produce any kind of pictures they wanted to if they were clever enough to do it.

"One day you may see my picture also like that," Dr Mahathir told reporters after attending a Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia fundraising event Setia City Convention Centre, here late Wednesday (June 12).

Dr Mahathir said the videos were 'cooked-up' by someone with a political agenda.

"Things like these are dirty. If you cannot compete with someone don't do something like this," said Dr Mahathir.

To a question if Azmin had met him over the matter, Dr Mahathir said he (Azmin) had attended the weekly Cabinet meeting as usual on Tuesday.
