SHAH ALAM, June 12 — An aide to Datuk Seri Azmin Ali will lodge a police report in Putrajaya tomorrow, after two waves of sex videos targeting the minister this week.

His political secretary Hilman Idham said following the police report, he will also lodge another report with Islamic authorities.

“The qazaf report will be lodged in the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) to clear Azmin’s name,” he told reporters tonight after a prayer session in support of Azmin.

Qazaf refers to the Shariah offence of accusing another Muslim of illicit sex without providing the stipulated four eyewitnesses.

Under Section 41 of the Shariah Criminal Offences (Federal Territories) Act 1997, the offence is punishable with fine not more than RM5,000, jail not more than three years, or both.

In addition, Hilman also questioned why PKR has not sacked Haziq Aziz, who is said to be the man confessing to be in the videos.

“He left PKR to be with Barisan Nasional in the last general election. When he lost, he returned to PKR,” the Gombak Setia assemblyman claimed.

“It is curious that during the last PKR party election, he went against Azmin’s faction. He won and no action was taken.

“The party leadership should not have allowed him to contest, and after his disgusting criminal confession, he should have been sacked immediately,” he added.

In an earlier press conference, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said Haziq is still a PKR member.

Santubong PKR has also claimed that Haziq has denied being the individual in the sex and confession clips.

Hilman also claimed that Haziq was not present during the Sandakan by-election campaigning last month, and he did not see the latter with Azmin while in Sabah.

“While Azmin was in Sandakan, I was with him, from the moment we arrived at the airport until we left. I was the one who managed Azmin’s political schedule in Sandakan. I have never seen Haziq with Azmin.

“He was never seen together with the Pakatan Harapan team,” he claimed.
