How did the porn video get on YouTube?

Shouldn’t the IGP be asking ‘Datuk T’ whether the video clip they handed to the police was their only copy, wonders P Ramakrishnan.

Malaysians are seriously asking, “How did the pornographic video clip get uploaded to YouTube? Who was responsible for making this vile tape available?”

It would not be difficult to make a wild guess! We all have an inkling who could have done this and for what purpose.

It was meant to give far wider coverage to the clip – to denigrate and vilify Anwar Ibrahim for political mileage. It is not difficult to conclude who will gain from such political mileage.

It was not only given air time but it was also covered widely by the print media as well with images that purportedly resembled Anwar. They really went to town in their despicable attempt to destroy Anwar so that he will not be their downfall in the next general election.

The infamous Datuk Trio were the ones who were originally in possession of the pornography video clip allegedly implicating Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. They were the ones who screened this porno video to invited guests on several occasions.

They subsequently claimed they had surrendered the original copy to the police. But they never said that they had not made a copy of the tape or were in possession of one. Nobody bothered to raise this issue. Even if anyone did, nobody reported it.

All they said was that the original copy was given to the police. But it doesn’t mean they could not have made copies for whatever purposes.

No lesser a person than the Inspector-General of Police has strongly denied that the the police had leaked the snippets of the pornography video featuring a man somewhat resembling Anwar Ibrahim having a liaison with a Chinese prostitute in a hotel. According to the IGP, “Of course, it did not come from us. How can I allow such a thing.”

The question then arises, “Where did the porn video come from?”

The IGP’s statement was very telling, “It was ‘Datuk T’ who said that there was one copy of the video. But, we do not know if it is the truth. You should ask them.”

Why should the reporters ask ‘Datuk T’? Shouldn’t the police be asking ‘Datuk T’ whether they told the truth when they claimed that they had given the police the original copy?

Isn’t it logical, Mr IGP, that you should actually ask ‘Datuk T’ whether it was the only copy in their possession that was given to the police, especially when you said, “We do not know if it is the truth”.

Clearly, the screening of this snippet is wrong. So was the screening of the tape to selected invited guests. Would it not be natural to go after the ‘Datuk T’ to grill them for the truth and take the necessary action?

Another obvious question that has been ignored is puzzling. In the snippet, there is a third person. What was his role and why was he there? If anybody wants to have sex with a prostitute, would he bring along someone to be present?

Was the third person directing the entire scene? Did he tell the person with the towel wrapped around him to put his hand under the towel between his legs? Was that the reason the guy with the towel was grinning away? It must have been very amusing to that guy!
Let’s have the truth. Let’s get down to the truth!
