The video of Lester Melanyi has implicated a slew of opposition leaders in the claim that allegations about 1MDB was fabricated.
The video was highlighted by BN strategic communication director Abdul Rahman Dahlan yesterday.
Lester, who claimed he worked as an editor for Sarawak Report , alleged he was responsible for fabricating information for the website, which is run by editor-in-chief Clare Rewcastle Brown.

"1MDB plan was first told to me by Clare in January this year. She told me we have a very important mission this time for (former opposition leader) Anwar Ibrahim.
"She told me that I had to do it according to what (DAP lawmaker)Tony Pua and (PKR vice-president) Rafizi (Ramli) wanted," he said in the video, which has been widely circulated including on the Friends of BN Facebook page.
However, Rewcastle said Lester never worked for Sarawak Report and was only hired for a few months at Radio Free Sarawak (RFS) in 2011.
Rafizi in a statement today denied the claim and described it as an " evil conspiracy " to distract attention from the scandal plaguing 1MDB and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
He had threatened to sue those behind the allegation soon.
In the video, which was described as 'Part One', Melanyi claimed that Sarawak Report fabricated information about 1MDB over its “love” for Anwar.
