Some 100 people gathered outside the court complex in Jalan Duta from as early as 8am to show their support for the Datuk T trio. Earlier, the supporters collected donations from among themselves to help pay for the men’s fines totalling RM5,500.
The plot thickens..
Based on the statement of facts which were presented in a magistrate's court yesterday, US experts from Dartmouth College were quoted as saying that the video was authentic and that the man in the video was 99.99% likely to be Anwar.
In the statement of facts, it was also revealed that Shuaib (one-third of Datuk T), who had surrendered himself to the police on May 25, had given a statement to authorities, saying that the recording of the sex video was taken from an apartment in Ampang here.
It was also stated that the police had gotten CCTV recordings from the apartment showing Anwar with Shazryl Eskay at its lobby on Feb 21.
The sex video was also played in court.

At the same time, a PKR leader has produced a 40-minute video clip to debunk the claim that Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was the man in the sex video.
Sungai Petani MP Datuk Johari Abdul, who narrated the clip which featured scenes from the sex video, gave his views on the “faults” found in the video.
Johari’s video made a zoom-in comparison between Anwar’s physique and that of the man in the video.
Besides noting the bulging belly, chest and nose, Johari also pointed out a difference in their haircut.
“The perpetrators behind the sex clip claim that it was recorded on Feb 21 in which the man was seen as having extremely short hair.
“Anwar, who attended a court hearing on Feb 22 was photographed by the media with a full head of hair,” Johari said at the screening of his video to the press at PKR headquarters yesterday.
Johari was among the first PKR leaders known to have viewed the full-length sex video clip on March 21 at a hotel in Ampang following an invitation from Datuk Shuaib Lazim, the former Perkasa treasurer-general who is also a part of the trio known as Datuk T.
To further prove that “the person in the video could be anyone”, Johari also included scenes where he travelled to Thailand for a facial makeover service.
He demonstrated how a four-hour transformation could make him look like the late P. Ramlee.

The 40-minute video was shown to reporters during a press conference at the PKR headquarters Friday. It will be uploaded to YouTube according to Johari and the plan is to have copies of the video to be on sale to the public. I bet it will be a sellout..
