Now Niat chief gets sex video

He is sure it is not Anwar and has lodged a police report
PETALING JAYA : Thasleem Mohamed Ibrahim, chairman of the National Interlok Action Team (Niat), has become the latest public figure to receive the controversial video promoted by three Anwar Ibrahim detractors calling themselves the Datuk T.

He got the pornographic DVD on Tuesday in a parcel mailed from Thailand by an anonymous sender.

Human Rights Party pro-tem secretary general P Uthayakumar and Kapar MP S Manikavasagam recently received theirs in a similar manner.

Thasleem lodged a police report at the Dang Wangi police station this morning and told FMT afterwards that he watched the video and was convinced that the man featured in it was not Anwar, as claimed by the Datuk Trio—former Malacca Chief Minister Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and ex-Perkasa treasurer Shuib Lazim.

He said he made the report in performance of his duty as “a responsible citizen”.

The DVD was wrapped in a menu card from an Iranian restaurant in Pattaya, he added.

“I watched the DVD three to four times. The actor features similar to Anwar’s, but I am definitely sure it is not him.”

Thasleem, who also heads various Muslim NGOs in Perak, criticised religious officials for keeping silent on the issue.

‘Why are the muftis and the Fatwa Council silent? Are they going to be selective in what they say and toe the government line?”

He said the religious authorities must give their opinions on the matter because it affected Malaysia’s image as a country whose official religion is Islam.

He said it puzzled him that he was targeted as a recipient of the video. “Perhaps they want me to campaign against or for Anwar, but I am not in the position to do either.”
