PUTRAJAYA, June 11 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said he knows nothing about a homosexual video clip circulating on social media that allegedly features one of his Cabinet members.

The prime minister said the matter was new to him when asked for comment at a news conference here after he chaired the third Economic Action Council.

“I've not heard of it.

“If I don't know about it, I cannot comment yet,” he said.

A series of short videos lasting roughly 1.34-minutes have been making the rounds on social media. The clips show two men, one who resembles a minister in the current administration, getting intimate with each other.
