PETALING JAYA: Datuk T is an alias for ‘Datuk Trio' - former Malacca chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Perkasa treasurer Datuk Shuib Lazim.
Rahim told this to reporters at a press conference here on Wednesday.
Shazryl was at the press conference but not Shuib.
Rahim, however, refused to identify the man in the video but hinted “this man may end up being PM”.
He went to say that the man had once asked him to step down for the nation's sake, when he (Rahim) was implicated (but later cleared) of an alleged sex scandal
"The man asked me to step down then, saying I was a liablity. I was told to go (as Malacca CM) although I was never found guilty," he added.
Rahim said that it was now up to the Government to set a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate the authenticity of the video.
He said the members of the RCI should comprise people from various quarters and include Perkasa and Kita president Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.
“We want NGOs and also media to sit in the RCI. Let everyone see the truth. All political parties - both Government and Opposition - can also be in the RCI," he added.
Rahim said PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang should also be included in the RCI.
Meanwhile, Shazryl told the press conference that they did not go to the police over the sex video as they did not want the issue to be spun into a conspiracy theory. - theStarOnline
