3 Malaysians charged over alleged Anwar sex tape

KUALA LUMPUR (Malaysia) - A MALAYSIAN businessman and two former ruling coalition politicians have been charged in court for publicly screening a video allegedly showing opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim having sex with a prostitute. Businessman Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Shuib Lazim were charged on Friday with distributing pornography by showing the video to a group of journalists on March 21, while Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik was charged with abetting them. All three pleaded guilty and face up to three years in jail if convicted. Anwar, who is currently on trial on charges he sodomised a male former aide, has denied he was the man seen in the video. He claims the sodomy charge and video are government fabrications to undermine his opposition alliance, but officials deny any conspiracy. -- AP
