Haziq made the sworn confession in a 34-second video which was uploaded on his FB Page yesterday.

“I, Haziq Aziz, (am) making a sworn confession that I am the individual with (the minister) in the video which went viral yesterday (Tuesday).

“The video was taken without my permission on May 11 during the Sandakan by-election in (he named the minister) room at Hotel Four Points.

Haziq, is the youth leader of PKR Santubong branch.

Lokman was reported as saying by an online news portal: “I want the police to investigate the authenticity of the videos, who has been spreading the videos, and also the ‘actors’ involved.”
He lodged the report at the Putrajaya police headquarters calling for a full investigation over the five-minute video.

On Tuesday, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad when asked to comment on the video  at a press conference after chairing the Economic Action Council meeting in Putrajaya, said he was not aware of it.
