Datuk T  Sex Video:  Shuib Lazim is the Fall Guy

One of the ‘Datuk T’ trio, PERKASA treasurer Shuib Lazim, has come out to clear the air over his role in the recent sex video purportedly showing an opposition politician having sex with a prostitute.

Owning up over the video, he dismissed claims that he was merely an ‘innocent bystander’ over the whole episode. “I really do take full responsibility over this video,” he told Malaysiakini when contacted.

This is in contrast to the claims by Sungai Petani MP from PKR Johari Abdul, who reckoned that Shuib was an unwitting accomplice to the debacle over the video, which showed a man resembling opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim engaging in a sex act with a woman claimed to be a prostitute.

Johari (left) – who is also Shuib’s nephew – had earlier defended his uncle and said Shuib had told him privately that he did not think Anwar was the man in the video. “I know my uncle and I don’t think he’ll go that far. I think he’s just an innocent bystander… I think he is just a ‘matcher’ because I am his nephew.

“Shuib also told me that he does not believe that it was (Anwar) in the video and I think he called me to watch it because he genuinely wanted me to see it and verify this,” Johari was reported to have said last Thursday.

However, Shuib said this could not be further from the truth. “I know that (the video) is the truth. I know that this is all real and that is why I joined the Datuk T gang. If it wasn’t true, I would not have agreed to it,” he said.

Asked about Johari’s allegations about his role, Shuib said that it was probably a case of the lawmaker wanting to “defend his boss”.

Death threats against Shuib

The 22-minute video recording was released last Monday by an initially mysterious Datuk T, who later unmasked themselves as being a ‘trio’ of businessman Shazryl Eskay Abdullah, former Malacca chief minister Rahim Thamby Chik and Shuib.

Shuib not present at their press conference on Wednesday, giving rise to speculation that he was not exactly a willing party.Shuib, who sounded tired but affable over the phone, also said that he has received death threats. He refuted an article in the New Straits Times yesterday that he had placed himself under voluntary house arrest, saying he still ventured out.

“The Police just told me to be careful,” he said, denying that he received any police protection. Shuib also said that he has given his statement to the police twice over the video, the most recent being two days ago.

Saying that he was still staying in his Kuala Lumpur residence, he joked that he would be “going into hiding” back in his hometown in Sungai Petani, Kedah, soon. “I nak sembunyi dah. I dah nak lari (I want to go into hiding now. I want to flee),” he said with a chuckle.

‘Foolish, childish rants’

In a related development, PKR political bureau member and MP for Subang Sivarasa Rasiah warned Eskay against repeating his “foolish and childish rants” about Anwar’s purported travels to Thailand or anywhere else.

Sivarasa, who is also one of Anwar’s legal counsel, said “no sensible person would deem it necessary to answer the sort of questions that Eskay was posturing with pretended bravado.”

“If Eskay has any specific accusations to make, then he should make them and meet the consequences, legal and otherwise,” the lawyer said in a statement late last night.

Eskay is reported to have challenged Anwar to answer his questions about ‘trips’ to Thailand and his activities in a hotel there.

“Over the past two years, how many times has Anwar been to Thailand? Who greeted Anwar in Thailand? Which hotel did Anwar stay in?

“What was Anwar doing in the hotel? And who paid for the travel expenses?” Eskay was quoted as having said yesterday.

“Don’t force me to reveal all of this. Ask Anwar to answer these questions before attacking me,” he added.

Sivarasa said Anwar has been advised not to respond to Eskay’s “foolishness”. “Eskay seems to have the benefit of BN-conferred immunity from criminal prosecution despite having openly committed the criminal offence of being in possession of an obscene video and also publicly screening it.However any specific accusation that he chooses to make instead of these foolish, vacuous questions will be met with the appropriate and stern legal riposte,” said Sivarasa.

  1. I expected Dato Eskay to be the fall guy for new contracts. In stead Dato Shuib, a fellow Kedahan, decided to be Wira Melayu to save Tan Sri Rahim Thamby Chik from being in trouble with the “Law”. It is normal in politics for someone to take the bullet on behalf of a leader. But I wonder what is the deal here for Shuib. Nothing is for free. Perhaps, we will hear of the deal sooner or later. –Din Merican

  2. Eskay has done a great job for his masters and will probably be rewarded for his patriotism.
    Expect an out of court settlement and a fat cheque of some 20 million ringgit for the failed crooked bridge.
    Betrayal pays.

  3. Anyway, can anyone find out how many millions of riggint was given by UMNO to Shuib Lazim to protect UMNO’s three Datuk T.

    UMNO politics even divide families!!!!

  4. Dato Din,
    Please stop displaying the pictures of the 3 Datos, I really can’t stand and each time I open a thread with their picture my stomach squirm and I feel like puking. Instead have a caricature or better still a picture of three monkeys or the rear side of 3 donkeys.

  5. With shuib taking the fall , it also should mean that they are showing the 2 fingers to PERKASA and its fat chief and shorty adviser who seems to have absconded to argentina.

  6. Over exposure is good for these guys. I have done that with an intention so that people like Semper Fi and Mongkut Bean can get sick of them. –Din Merican

  7. It is sickening to be reminded that Malays would go to any length, stoop very low, do anything to destroy their adversaries. Very vindictive lot.

  8. They are Mr Bean, a very vindictive lot. Contrary to their so called professed belief in God. Quite primitive really they are.
