Sex video case: Datuk T trio fined for showing obscene film (Updated)


KUALA LUMPUR: Businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and former Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuaib Lazim were fined RM3,000 in default three months jail and RM1,500 in default two months jail respectively, for openly displaying an obscene film at Carcosa Seri Negara on March 21 this year. Former Malacca chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, who was charged with abetting them, was fined RM1,000 in default one month jail.

Shuib, Rahim and Eskay arriving at the court on Friday

Magistrate Aizatul Akmal Maharani meted out the fines after hearing submissions Friday.

He said he had taken the factors of public interest, interest of the accused and facts of the case into consideration.

“Also, that they had pleaded guilty at the first opportunity in the proceedings and that they are first time offenders,” he ruled.

The prosecution team comprised DPPs Datuk Kamaluddin Md Said and Mohd Hanafiah Zakaria.

Representing the three accused were lawyers Zamani Ibrahim, Suhaimi Salleh, and Datuk Muhammad Shafee Abdullah.

Muhammad Shafee said while the sex video that was shown was obscene, the intention was never to corrupt or deprave public morals.

“Instead, their motive was an honourable one – to expose a depraved and corrupt public leader,” he said.

He added that the trio had done the public a service and cannot be allowed to walk out of the court thinking justice was not done to them. “Justice can be done for them by showing them compassion in sentencing,” he said.

Muhammad Shafee then applied orally for the three accused to be allowed to pay the fine on Monday, saying that Datuk T’s supporters had insisted on paying the fine for them, and as such it may take a while for them to settle the payment.

The court granted them until 4pm to pay the fine.

Earlier, all three accused had pleaded guilty to the charges under Section 292 of the Penal Code for openly displaying an obscene video clip showing a man and a woman having sex.

They were said to have done so at Bilik Seri Makmur, Carcosa Seri Negara, in Kuala Lumpur between 10am and noon, on March 21, this year.

Speaking to reporters outside the court complex, Muhammad Shafee said Datuk T’s supporters managed to collect RM22,000 to pay the fine.

About 100 supporters had gathered at the court at 8am carrying banners and chanting “Hidup Datuk T.”

There were also about 20 police personnel watching over the crowd.

Perak Perkasa chairman Ahmad Zaini Ismail, speaking on the behalf of the groups at the rally, said they were there to show support for Datuk T and that they had complete trust in the judicial system.


When the video was first shown to selected editors on Monday 21 March 2011, it became an instant sensation. Two days later, Opposition Leader Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim made a Police report at Dang Wangi Police station claiming the person in the much talked about video is not him. Of course, something was amiss about his police report.

The most important equipment in the highly controversial sex scandal video is an ‘Omega Watch’, which was believed to be a unique souvenir from a Saudi prince to Anwar. It was left in the room where the sex happened and was in posseeion with Shazryl. Whenever the question was poised to the Man who is supposed to still have it with him, he goes beserk.

The fact that these three personalities were very adamant that the former-abuse-of-power-convict is the man who was rogering the Chinese woman, that the pleaded guilty to the charge. They came out in the open in press conferences to stand by their claim. On 29 April 2011, they even did ‘Sumpah Muhaballah’ in the name of God Al mighty with the Quran in hand, in a mosque to affirm their conviction on the video they made public.

And yet Anwar’s band of bandits were very insistant about the man in the sex video is not their de facto leader. PKR President Wan Azizah Ismail went against the press when the question about the ‘Omega Watch’ was asked to be produced. The man himself threw tantrums whenever he was asked about it, even during the Sarawak State Election campaign.

So, the Anwar “The Compulsive Liar” Ibrahim lied and filed a false Police report?

If he did, then he could be charged under Section 192, 193 and/or 199 of the Penal Code for making a false police report. The police should act on this fast. Bad enough he was caught on video (which an American professor qualified to be 99.9% proof) having adulterous sexual coitus with a Chinese woman believed to be a part time prostitute. He also made a false police report that it wasn’t him?

Malaysians deserve much better politicians. Especially an Opposition Leader who aspire to be a the Prime Minister, even by deception.
