KUALA LUMPUR, July 18 — Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali has in many instances, kept both journalists and political observers on the edge of their seats when it comes to his one, or two-liner coded Twitter retorts, especially in the face of intense infighting in PKR.
Today was no exception, when the Economic Affairs Minister tweeted a mere: “Alhamdulillah syukur” (Alhamdulillah, grateful), via his Twitter handle Mohamed Azmin Ali @AzminAli.
His tweet came just moments after the Inspector-General of Police, Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador, released a statement, hinting that the police have closed in on the identity of a politician, alleged to be behind several sex videos implicating Azmin.
Abdul Hamid though not explicitly naming anyone, said that the leader of a political party, had spent ‘hundreds of thousands of ringgit’ for the videos.
He said that the money was spent with the aim of tarnishing a certain leader’s reputation.
“The result of PDRM’s investigations revealed that there is a notorious pact led by the leader of a political party, aimed at embarrassing and tarnishing the reputation of a certain individual.
“The videos which were spread with the intention to provoke people’s anger, was produced by a party, who was paid hundreds of thousands of ringgit,” Abdul Hamid said.
