KUALA LUMPUR: The three members of Datuk T' who admitted to showing a sex video implicating an opposition leader to editors and journalists at Carcosa Seri Negara will be charged at a Kuala Lumpur court on June 24.
Datuk T, comprising businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah, former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik and former Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim would be charged under Section 5 of the Film Censorship Act.
If found guilty, they are liable to a fine of RM10,000 or jailed five years or both.
The matter is brought to court following police investigation into a report lodged by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who had claimed that he was not the man in the video.
“Let the law takes its course, and hopefully the truth will be revealed,” said Eskay.
Shuib, who was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday, said the public deserve to know the truth.
“We leave it to the court to decide, but our conscience is clear as we exposed the existence of the video in the interest of the nation,” he said.
The police had sought the help of local and foreign experts to verify the identity of the man in the video.
Rahim said the police have already verified the authenticity of the video and the identity of the man in the video.
“The finding should be revealed in the interest of the public,” he said. - theStarOnline
