Sex video claims Malaysia minister

Minister resigns over secretly filmed sex video showing him committing adultery.

    Chua had earlier admittted being the man in the tape but said he did not know how it was made [Reuters]

    "I would like to emphasize that I did not make the tape myself. Who has done this and why it was done is obvious. Who made this tape is not important any more," he said, apparently suggesting it was made by his political rivals.

     

    The tape was apparently made on a CCTV camera in a hotel room.

     

    The scandal was seen as a major embarrassment to Abdullah Badawi, the Malaysian prime minister, who has been expected to call snap elections in the coming days.

     

    Chua is also vice president of the Malaysian Chinese Association, the dominant ethnic Chinese party in the ruling coalition.

     

    He had earlier said he would not resign, saying the decision on his future lay with the prime minister.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
