Police have received a report from British audiovisual forensic experts on the sex video implicating Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali.
In a statement today, Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Huzir Mohamed confirmed that the report from Birmingham-based Verden Forensics was submitted by Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam.
"The case involving a sex video distributed through the 'Jemputan Raya Azmin' WhatsApp group is still being investigated under Sections 377B and 292 of the Penal Code, and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998," he said.
Sections 377B and 292 of the Penal Code deal with carnal intercourse against the order of nature and the dissemination of obscene material, respectively. Section 233 of the CMA pertains to the improper use of a network service or application.
Huzir said that the Verden Forensics report has been submitted to Cybersecurity Malaysia for further action, and that investigation papers have been forwarded to the Attorney-General's Chambers.
“Lokman will be called up again for further recording of his statement on Sept 3, 2019,” he said.
In July, Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said that Cybersecurity Malaysia found that while the video was authentic, the facial recognition process had failed to link Azmin to the video, which depicts two men engaging in sexual activity.
However, Lokman later claimed that the Indonesian experts he hired to analyse the video used error level analysis (ELA) to confirm that it was Azmin and former Santubong PKR Youth chief Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz shown in the video.
