KUALA LUMPUR, April 14 – Police have identified the man in the sex video allegedly featuring Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Tan Sri Ismail Omar said today.

The Inspector-General of Police (picture) said however that the police will not reveal the identity of the individual.

Ismail said that the investigation papers on the sex video probe will be completed next week.

Three weeks ago, a mysterious “Datuk T” had screened a video purportedly showing Anwar having sex with an unidentified woman.

Former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim then claimed responsibility for the video, saying they screened the video to show “a man who wants to be prime minister is not qualified.”

Anwar has consistently denied that he was the man in the video.

The PKR defacto leader had on March 22 trained his guns on Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, accusing them of being involved with the screening of the video to press members.

But both the PM and the home minister denied any involvement by the police and Home Ministry over the emergence of the sex video.

A 107-second snippet surfaced on the Internet on last week, just two days after police said the video was not doctored.

It made public part of the video that was only screened to select individuals and reporters prior to this but the clip has since been taken down from YouTube for violating the video site’s policy on nudity and sexual content.

PKR has claimed that the clip proved the man in the video was not their de facto leader and repeated their demand that the trio be arrested for pornography.

DAP lawmaker and veteran lawyer Karpal Singh said recently that the “Datuk T” trio could be charged under section 292 of the Penal Code and section 5 of the Film Censorship Act for allegedly distributing obscene material as well as criminal defamation and criminal intimidation.

Section 372 (1) of the Penal Code states that it is only a crime if a person “sells, lets for hire... procures, buys or hires or otherwise obtains possession of” any person with the intention of employing, or using that same person for the purpose of prostitution.

The section states that it is also a crime to utilise “deceitful means” to assist in bringing a person in Malaysia for the purpose of prostitution.

Sections 372a and 372b state that it is a crime to live off the earnings of the prostitution of another person and it is also against the law to solicit for the purpose of prostitution.

The Penal Code does not say that it is illegal for an individual to engage in sex with a prostitute in Malaysia.
