Malaysian minister resigns after admitting sex scandal

mr. chua soi lek, malaysian health ministerMalaysian Health Minister Chua Soi Lek admitted that he is the man in an unmarried couple sex romp featured in two widely circulated DVDs.

Although he said he will not resign when he made his apology to the prime minister and other ruling party leaders, Mr. Chua resigned January 3, 2008 as health minister and lawmaker and has blamed 'certain partymen' of his Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) for the scandal but has refused to elaborate further.

According to one newspaper, the video is CCTV footage taken in a hotel, with date and suite reportedly unknown.

Mr. Chua, 60, toldreporters that he is "the man in the tape and the girl is a personal friend" hours after the Star reported that the two DVDs were being widely distributed in Johor, his home state.

He added that he did not make the tape himself.

"Who [did] this is not important. What is most important is that my family, wife and children have accepted my apology," said Mr. Chua.

As health minister, Mr Chua has campaigned giving out free condoms to reduce the spread of HIV, in the face of religious opposition.
