A gay sex tape leaked last month, rumored to show Malaysian Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin, and police have confirmed they’ve made two more arrests in connection to the video.

Gay sex is illegal in Malaysia, and can land you in prison for 20 years, according to Gay Star News. Since the video came out, Azmin denied being one of the men shown having sex, and police have accused the video’s distributors of creating a scandal to end his career.

"We will investigate who is behind this ... it is understood that some of suspects’ remand would end soon but we would apply for an extension to enable us to investigate further," Police Inspector General Abdul Hamid Bador said, according to Channel News Asia.

Bador said police found that the video is most likely authentic, but facial recognition couldn’t identify the individuals in the tape.
