He said many MCA leaders and members had warned him that his name topped the list for allegedly not supporting the leadership.
"The group was tasked to remove some eight key members of the party.
"A lot of people have linked the exposure of the DVD featuring myself and another woman to this group."
He said when he admitted that he was the man captured on video engaging in sexual acts with a female friend, he announced his resignation from all party posts.
"I also said that I was not after anyone who was responsible for recording the tape. What is important is my family and their understanding, the party members and my friends," said the former health minister.
"I wish to focus on the development of MCA. I hope party members will accept that the tape is history. I want to move on with my life and continue my service for the party and nation."
Dr Chua appealed to MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting to investigate whether such a group existed.
"I am prepared to come forward with information on this group."
He also called on Ong to stop saying that he (Ong) had nothing to do with the DVD at the party's closed-door meetings and during his working trips.
"I don't understand why he has to bring up my name and the tape if he is not involved."
PETALING JAYA: Former MCA vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek claimed that many people had told him that his sex DVD was linked to the spy squad set up to oust those not favoured by the party leadership.
“I am disappointed if this secret group is true because I am among those who have been identified by the group as not supporting the top leadership and should be 'destroyed',” said Dr Chua who called a press conference over the matter.
He urged the three-men commit-tee to investigate the allegations of the spy squad thoroughly.
“I appeal to the top leadership to investigate thoroughly if the group actually exist because it has become a topic of conversation in MCA,” he said, adding that he was willing to provide information if needed.
Dr Chua said he had heard about the secret committee as far back as two years ago but thought it was just “coffee shop” talk.
“But when I kept hearing my name as one of those that would be struck out, I was afraid,’’ he said.
“I began to take it seriously after the DVD episode,” he said, added that he was not interested in finding out who was behind the tape recording.
On whether he would contest for the president’s post, he said he would announce when the time was right.
“I hope the MCA sees the DVD recording episode as history,’’ he said. “I will continue with my life and serve the party and the country.”
