Who is Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz?


KUCHING: Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz is in the public spotlight after a video of a man who allegedly looks like him posted a video on Facebook confessing to having sex with a man resembling a federal minister.

This came after video clips of the sexual encounter became viral on social media on Tuesday.

But who is Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz?

According to sources, Haziq born in 1992, is a Bachelor of Law degree graduate. He is now the principal private secretary of Deputy Minister of Primary Industries Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin since January 19.

Haziq, a staunch Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) supporter is PKR Santubong branch Youth chief.

He also founded the PKR Students Wing in 2012 at Universiti Malaya (UM).

According to press reports, Haziq was among three UM students suspended during their first semester in 2012, and fined RM200 each for participating in the anti-PTPTN (Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional) demonstration.

The demonstration was staged to urge the authority to cancel the PTPTN and to provide free tertiary education.

In 2016, Haziq, a participant of Fullbright scholarship student exchange programme, said he wanted to leave PKR.

However PKR said they did not receive his resignation letter or expressed his intention to leave the party.

Subsequently, Haziq held a trainee post at the Prime Minister’s Department.

During the 14th general election campaign period he was active again with PKR and was elected PKR Santubong branch Youth chief.
