Sungai Petani MP Datuk Johari Abdul claimed on Wednesday that the two were a former top Barisan Nasional state leader and a businessman.
He also told a press conference at the PKR headquarters here that “no way Anwar (Ibrahim) was the man in the video”.
Johari said he watched the video on Monday afternoon at Flamingo Hotel here together with the two men.
He alleged he was invited to view the video as a move to get him and five other PKR MPs to quit the party.
“I believe they (the two men) could be the ones behind the video," he added.
Johari alleged that the former Barisan state leader was also "involved in the sodomy allegations against Anwar in 1998".
"The modus operandi used then is being repeated this time.
"Also, what the two men told me about the sex video matches closely Datuk T's statements thus far on the matter," he added.
Anwar has denied he is the man in the 22-minute video. He claimed it was doctored and blamed it on the Barisan government.
The Opposition Leader lodged a police report against Datuk T on Tuesday.
Datuk T had screened the video individually to several journalists at Carcosa Seri Negara here on Monday.
Datuk T gave the politician and his wife one week to quit politics and threatened to make the video public through some NGOs if they failed to do so. -theStarOnline
