Malaysia’s Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali rejected claims he was in a gay sex video that went viral earlier this week, and vowed to expose those behind the “abominable” allegations. “I categorically deny this vicious libel upon me,” he said in a statement on Wednesday evening. “This is nothing but a nefarious plot to assassinate my reputation and character in an attempt to destroy my political career.” Azmin claimed the video and accompanying accusations of corruption were the latest in a series of concerted attempts over the past few months to vilify him, but said the perpetrators would not distract him from planning and implementing “national development policies that are sustainable and inclusive”.
