Malaysian bishop condemns broadcast of sex tape
CWN - April 29, 2011
A Malaysian bishop has condemned the circulation of a videotape in which a leader of the country’s political opposition is capture in a sexual episode.
Government-controlled television stations aired the sex tape, which appeared to show opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim with a prostitute. Ibrahim's supporters say that the video is a fraud, using a look-alike actor.
Bishop Paul Tan, the head of the Malaysian bishops’ conference, professed “outrage” at “the showing of material that is vile and putrid on public TV.”
