Syed Saddiq has been dealing with a lot of haters trying to bring him down with false news about him, and clearly, he’s not having any of it.
This week, the Muar MP has responded to a rumour surrounding a short video clip on YouTube that depicts a lewd WhatsApp conversation allegedly between him and a school student.
“It’s disgusting. This is clearly a slander. Disgusting defamation. It doesn’t make any sense,” he told MalaysiaKini. Apart from firmly shutting down rumours about his involvement in the video’s content, Syed Saddiq also revealed that he will take legal action against the culprit behind the video.
The 29-year-old politician was contacted by the media outlet soon after it was made known that several individuals had lodged a police report on the case. For those curious, the controversial clip was uploaded on YouTube a few days ago.
The video shows the male sender (known as Baby Sadiq) having a sexual conversation with the school girl. Part of the Whatsapp text showed the sender requesting for the recipient to send an NSFW photograph of her. The 45-second long clip was uploaded on “Pendedahan Politikus Korup (PPK)” account on 3rd May. The account was recently created on 28th March.
Gombak District Police Chief Arifai Taware confirmed that he had already received a police report on the case earlier this morning (Wednesday, 5th March). In regards to that, the police official stated that the team are “in the early stages of the investigation.”
