Oh Oh Rosmah!
27 October 2018
When contacted, Najib dismissed the accusations as baseless, saying the claims in his suits were also “complete fabrication”.
PETALING JAYA: A businessman at the centre of a civil suit against former prime minister Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor has made a startling admission that he had gifted millions of ringgit worth of luxury items to the couple in exchange for contracts.
In an interview with an international news broadcaster that has yet to be aired, Deepak Jaikishan claimed that he had given the couple close to RM300 million in cash, jewellery, luxury cars and properties in Malaysia and the United Kingdom.
“I have been given various concessions, and he demanded certain gratifications,” said Deepak, who recently filed a RM656 million suit against Najib, Rosmah and two others, alleging interference in a property deal that caused his company to suffer huge losses.
He said among the gifts were a house in Malaysia and a Bentley Flying Spur, which is priced close to RM2 million in Malaysia, which he said was bought for Rosmah.
He named two relatives of the couple, whose names he said were used to register the car and the property.
Deepak, who claimed he has documentary proof to back his allegations, said he was “defrauded” in two instances, adding that his complaints with the authorities were ignored.
“They too couldn’t do anything. If you know Datin Rosmah, she can get very brutal, even the senior government officers can be sacked,” he said.
Deepak said one of the contracts involved accommodation for government-sponsored students abroad.
“The contract was worth RM4.5 billion but it was cancelled,” he said in the clip of the interview that was leaked on social media and seen by FMT.
Another contract was linked to the suit he filed on Oct 12 against Najib, Rosmah, Boustead Holdings and Bakti Development Wira Sdn Bhd, over a property deal which he said caused losses to his company, Astacanggih Sdn Bhd.
“After paying the money for this land, it was sold to another company. I lodged a report and again, nothing happened.”
Deepak said he was not the only victim of the former leader, adding that many other businessmen are ready to make exposes in court.
Deepak Jaikishan back in the limelight
Property and carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan first gained infamy after being linked to the 2006 murder scandal of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Private investigator P. Balasubramaniam or “PI Bala” had alleged in late 2009 that Deepak and Mohammad Nazim Razak, the younger brother of Datuk Seri Najib Razak, had forced him to withdraw his first sworn testimony linking the prime minister to the murder of Altantuya.
Deepak, 42, was back in the limelight last year when he admitted that he helped get Balasubramaniam to repudiate his earlier statutory declaration on the murder, including finding two lawyers to draft a new statement.
He also came out with a 47-page book, “Black Rose 2.0: Black Magic Women”, that discussed rituals used in the country’s administration.
Deepak, who went silent after that, is now back in the limelight after former Bank Rakyat chairman Tan Sri Sabbaruddin Chik fingered Deepak as having used political connections to settle a loan with the bank amounting to RM32 million without any interest calculated due to the intervention of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hasan Malek.
The board of directors had initially rejected the compromise offered by Deepak to settle his outstanding debt. Deepak had allegedly offered 120 post-dated cheques to be cashed in by the bank over a 10-year period.
According to Sabbaruddin, after the decision was made, Hasan was dissatisfied and refused to sign the letter extending his tenure as Bank Rakyat chairman.
“My term ended on April 8 and Bank Negara had agreed to extend my contract, but Hasan refused to sign it,” Sabbaruddin had told The Malaysian Insider.
He also revealed that Hasan had a meeting with Deepak without Bank Rakyat’s knowledge in January.
“It was only after that we discovered that the two had met, as cheques for January, February and March had been prepared, waiting to be cashed.”
Following Sabbaruddin’s allegations, Bank Rakyat in a statement had said that the element of interest did not arise in the Islamic financing mechanism.
“Each financing is a sales and purchase agreement which includes elements of profit and administrative costs such as late payment charges.
“As far as the bank is concerned there is no repayment and financing that is without profit and administrative charges,” the bank said.
The bank, however, did not refute Sabbaruddin’s allegations.
Deepak and Hasan have yet to respond to Sabbaruddin’s claims. – May 29, 2014.

Flora Ong denies Deepak’s allegations
Written by Wong Choon Mei, Malaysia Chronicle
Businesswoman Flora Ong has denied being involved in any intimate relationship with embattled Prime Minister Najib Razak or being the recipient of 2 major government contracts worth billions of ringgit.
The accusations against Flora were made by Deepak Jaikishan, a controversial businessman who was once part of Rosmah Mansor’s inner circle. Rosmah is the wife of the Malaysian PM.
However, according to Flora’s lawyer, the facts were “incorrect and untrue”.

CONTRACTS & SEX: Flora Ong, an Ampang girl…….
Written by Maria Begum, Malaysia Chronicle
Controversial businessman Deepak Jaikishan has turned the heat on Prime Minister Najib Razak. Stripping off the gloves, the 40-year-old former confidante of Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor has just unleashed a fresh barrage of allegations that could submerge the political fortunes of the Malaysian PM and his Umno party.
Flora Ong is now the name on the lips of many followers of the Altantuya Shaaribuu-Scorpene submarines saga, even though she is not directly linked to the murder and corruption case that Deepak has accused the first couple of having a hand in.
“Flora Ong is an intimate lady friend of Najib. She was awarded 2 major contracts – a power grid line in Sabah and Sarawak worth RM2biland a water treatment plant in Lembah Pantai,” Deepak told Malaysia Chronicle.
Carpet trader Deepak Jaikishian says he has not decided whether to meet with former private investigator P Balasubramaniam, who intends to return to Malaysia on Sunday and remain here permanently.
Deepak said he does not plan to meet Balasubramaniam at the KL International Airport when he arrives.
“Not at the moment. I have not thought of meeting him.
“Welcome home, Bala, hopefully now the couple who ordered the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu will instead run away to Sulawesi,” he said in jest, in a text message sent to this writer.
PI Bala to come home for good on Sunday
EXCLUSIVE Former private investigator P Balasubramaniam, who shot to fame following his two contradictory statutory declarations linked to the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, is coming back to Malaysia permanently on Sunday.
In an email correspondence with Malaysiakini, Balasubramaniam said that he would also like to travel nationwide to campaign for Pakatan Rakyat in the coming general election.
“It’s official. I will be coming back to my homeland on Sunday, hopefully permanently.
“There is a need to change and I hope Pakatan rules. I hope to tour the nation to assist in the Pakatan campaign in this general election,” he said.
This was also confirmed by his lawyer, Americk Singh Sidhu, who said that a large crowd would be present to receive Balasubramaniam when he arrives on Sunday.
Carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan has today filed a defamation suit against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak for his comments and claims that the businessperson “was not credible”.
The suit was filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court registry through the law firm of Messrs Daim & Gamany this afternoon.
Deepak claimed that the PM had uttered the defamatory words in a press conference after chairing a BN meeting last month.
The trader cited the article which appeared in Malaysiakini titled PM dismisses Deepak’s allegations as ‘not true’, where it was reported that during the press conference, the prime minister had painted a discrediting picture and tarnished his reputation.
The statement made by Najib reflected on Deepak as not having a good reputation, being a liar and a person who cannot be trusted, having low morals, and who does not deserve to have any professional relations.
Deepak is currently seeking for general, aggravated, and exemplary damages.

Deepak to sue Rosmah, government for RM3b over business losses
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 16 — Carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan will be filing a RM3 billion lawsuit against Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and the federal government next week in a bid to reclaim losses suffered from a series of business projects that have soured.
The controversial businessman also said he will be dragging Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to court in separate RM100 million defamation suit for calling him “not credible” in a public statement last month.
Deepak had revealed his legal action plan in an interview with a news portal that was also uploaded to YouTube yesterday, a move that could hurt the prime minister and his ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition’s chances in Election 2013.
He told The Malaysian Insider today that his lawyer, Sivarasa Rasiah, would provide more details on Monday.
|Harakahdaily,||13 February 2013|
Feb 13: Businessman Deepak Jaikishan has today applied for witness immunity from Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail.
Accompanying him were PAS lawyer Asmuni Awi and vice president Mahfuz Omar at the Attorney General’s Chamber.
“Today I submit my application to AG for immunity on the (issue of) statutory declaration made by P Balasubramaniam. But the letter could only be passed to his officer since Gani was in a meeting,” explained Deepak.
He said the application was to enable him reveal more details surrounding the controversial second statutory declaration by Bala in the Altantuya Shaariibu murder saga.
In his application, Deepak explained that he was not directly involved in both SDs by Bala dated July 1 and July 3, 2008 respectively.
Earlier, Mahfuz had assured that PAS would support Deepak’s application to seek immunity under the Whistleblowers Act 2010 and Witness Protection Act 2009.
Deepak promises second book of revelations
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 10 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s suggestion yesterday to ignore all Deepak Jaikishan’s allegations has stirred the hornet’s nest as the controversial carpet dealer today promised more revelations in his second book.
Titled “Black Rose 2.0: Black Magic Women”, the 47-page book will discuss rituals used in the country”s administration.
“i will be launching my 2nd book BLACK ROSE 2.0 ‘BLACK MAGIC WOMEN’ where d names, photos, address, payments made & rituals … will be published in this 47page book,” Deepak announced in a text message here.
Deepak stung by PM’s rebuttal
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 18 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s description of Deepak Jaikishan as someone without credibility has upset the controversial carpet dealer, who promises to be a thorn in the side by continuing his revelations about land deals.
The prime minister broke his silence last night when asked about the businessman’s allegations over the 2006 murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.
In an email sent to all news portals, Deepaksaid the prime minister’s reply was as good as a “no comment”.
Najib denies Deepak allegations, says carpet dealer not credible
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 17 – Datuk Seri Najib Razak denied tonight any involvement in the drafting of P. Balasubramaniam’s second sworn statement about the 2006 murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.
He said carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan’s allegations were not true, dismissing the claim as a non-issue.
The prime ministeralso said Deepak was not a credible person.
“Not true. (Deepak is) not a credible person. This is not an issue,” he told reporters tonight after chairing the Barisan Nasional (BN) supreme council meeting.
Of Kapeed, Bijan, Black Rose, Popiah, Lala, Jim and several other personalities…
The Black Rose, a series of books promised by carpet merchant Deepak Jaikishan, chronicling his feud with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s family, has finally found its way into cyberspace.
Black Rose 1.0, the first of the series, was circulated to the media tonight in the form of a 26-page e-book with its author being listed as ‘Spirit of Altantuya’.
The book makes no mention of any specific personalities by name, but its storyline closely resembles that of Deepak’s own story.
The book contained a slew of characters whose names appear to have been assigned nicknames or have had their real life names jumbled around.
Among them include Kapeed, Bijan, Black Rose, Popiah, Lala, Jim and several other personalities who he had implicated or referred to during his warpath against Najib’s family.
From Deepak’s account of his relation with Najib’s family to his involvement in reversing private eye P Balasubramaniam’s statutory declaration linking the premier to murdered Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu, the book appears to mirror these accounts but was penned in the form of a fairytale.
Carpet merchant Deepak Jaikishan’s book The Black Rose will be released as a free ebook beginning tomorrow.
At a press conference in Kuala Lumpur today, Deepak said he will release details on how the public can download the book tomorrow.
The book is expected to chronicle his involvement with a VIP’s wife in allegedly coercing private investigator P Balasubramaniam into retracting his statutory declaration in 2008.
Deepak was supposed to have launched the book at the press conference today, but decided against due to legal reasons.
“The objective of today’s press conference is about the book launch as well as the details of my transactions on the land that is sold to Boustead Holdings Bhd.
“But due to the nature of the exposé made by (PKR strategy director) Rafizi Ramli late this afternoon, I have been advised by my solicitors to sit still until (we) reply to Rafizi,” he said at a press conference today.
Businessperson Deepak Jaikishan has denied knowledge of PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli’s allegations earlier today that he had purchased custom jewellery for the prime minister’s wife Rosmah Mansor.
“I put it on record – I have never given it (the documents) to him. I have not given it to an intermediary to give it to him. That much I can promise you,” he told a press conference today.
The carpet trader also denied having ever seen the documents disclosed by Rafizi today, nor that he has any contact with him.
However, he declined to comment if Rafizi allegations were factual, citing legal advice.
He said his lawyers would take “a day or two” to reply to Rafizi before continuing with his own exposés, and blamed Rafizi for derailing his plans to launch his book today.
COMMENT “I cannot be bought. I’m priceless.”
So says Deepak Jaikishan, the man who appears to know a damaging lot about a murder mystery and is threatening to tell some or tell all he knows about it.
But one cannot be sure about his bona fides because the ‘now you see me, now you don’t’ businessman seems to have a taste for expedient disclosure: he dangles tantalising tidbits as bait, perhaps, for negotiated compromises.
It appeared that one such pact was negotiated last Friday when he abruptly withdrew a court case he had filed on grounds that he had been cheated in a land deal.
Dramatic twists and turns
No sooner had speculation swirled that the businessman equipped with what seems to be lethal inside knowledge of the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder was being bought off with the settlement of his land deal, he emerges to say that come New Year’s Day he will reveal more of what he knows, with some supposedly incriminating documentary evidence in tow.
This is ominous for personalities within the fire zone. Given what forewent in past phases of this saga, intimations such as Deepak shed, after the withdrawal of his case, are the prelude for dramatic twists and turns.

PKR smells a rat in carpet man’s deal
PKR’s Rafizi Ramli says it is no coincidence that a government investment firm has purchased Deepak Jaikishan’s company.
PETALING JAYA: The buying of “carpet man” Deepak Jaikishan’s firm Astacanggih Sdn Bhd which coincided with the withdrawal of his lawsuit against a Wanita Umno leader’s company over a Defence Ministry land deal yesterday, points towards abuse of power by the government, said an opposition leader.
PKR’s strategy director Rafizi Ramli was commenting on the purchase by a unit of a government investment company Boustead Holdings Bhd, which acquired an 80% stake in Astacanggih for RM30 million.
He claimed that it was “no coincidence” and that this pointed towards an “abuse of power” by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and Defence Minister Zahid Hamidi, adding that he was “shocked at the audacity by Najib and Zahid” to make such a move in full view of the public.
Yesterday, FMT reported that Deepak dropped the lawsuit against Awan Megah, a vehicle for Raja Ropiaah, without clear reasons given.

I was forced to sell off my company, says Deepak

Businessperson Deepak Jaikishan today admitted that he has sold his estranged company Astacanggih for RM30 million to a Defence Ministry agency, claiming that he was forced into the deal.
He said the deal was only to cover the money he had spent in a land deal with Awan Megah Sdn Bhd that turned sour, and had grudgingly gone through with it despite being denied the lands promised to him.
“It is true that my shareholders and me have sold our shares in Asta Canggih for RM30 million which is our actual cost price of RM13 million for Raja Ropiaah, RM8 million in political contributions, RM7 million of financial costs and RM2 million in legal and miscellaneous costs.
“This was an ultimatum that was forced upon us,” he said in a text message today.
Deepak drops suit against Putrajaya, LTAT unit buys out firm
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 28 ― Deepak Jaikishan has withdrawn his lawsuit against Putrajaya for an alleged breach of agreement over land in Bukit Raja, Selangor on the same day a unit of a government investment company reported it bought an 80 per cent stake in the carpet dealer’s property development firm for RM30 million.
The controversial businessman has made various allegations about the deal that involved Selangor Wanita Umno chief Senator Datuk Raja Ropiaah Abdullah, but has disappeared since December 13.
The Star reported today that a court official confirmed Deepak had, through his lawyer, withdrawn his suit without costs in the case of his company Astacanggih Sdn Bhd, which named the government’s Syarikat Tanah dan Harta Sdn Bhd, Awan Megah (M) Sdn Bhd and its nominee company, Cebur Megah Development Sdn Bhd, for allegedly breaching the agreement.
Bernama reported that a unit of Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera investment vehicle Boustead Holdings Bhd has acquired an 80 per cent stake in Astacanggih Sdn Bhd for RM30 million.
Cecil is a lawyer of the highest integrity – Americk Singh Sidhu
DEC 20 – There has been much speculation in the press recently over the identity of a “Tan Sri lawyer and his son” who were both supposedly involved in the preparation of my client’s 2nd statutory declaration (SD), the contents of which were specifically designed to withdraw the allegations made in his earlier statutory declaration and to state that my client, Bala, was ‘compelled’ to make those allegations ‘under duress’.
The reasons for this alleged ‘compulsion’ leading to the alleged ‘duress’ were never explained in the 2nd SD.
As far as I am concerned, the 1st SD was transcribed, produced and eventually affirmed by my client over a period of two months during which time every detail was painstakingly checked and cross-checked to ensure the highest accuracy. There was never any reason for my client to withdraw those contents unless he had been forced to, which is now apparent.
Let me make it very clear that my client does not know the identity of the lawyer(s) who drafted this 2nd statutory declaration. He had not instructed any lawyer to do so. This is because the contents of his 1st statutory declaration were true to the best of his knowledge and belief. Therefore there was never any necessity to alter the contents of his 1st SD. However, Bala was forced to sign a 2nd SD because of a threat to the safety of his wife and children.
My client was presented with this 2nd SD when he was being held in a room at the Hilton Hotel, KL Sentral, on the morning of July 4, 2008. In the hotel room with him at that time were Deepak Jaikishan, his brother Dinesh and one ASP Suresh.
Bala is unable to lodge a complaint with this Disciplinary Board for the simple reason he is unable to identify the lawyer(s) who attended to the drafting of that 2nd SD, as this was done in his absence and without his permission.
All he is able to do at this point in time is to confirm that he had not instructed any lawyer to prepare that 2nd SD, nor was he present before a lawyer when it was being prepared. The contents of that 2nd SD are also totally false.
Deepak has gone on record to say that the lawyers involved in the preparation of that 2nd SD were in fact a ‘Tan Sri and his son who is also a lawyer’.
This statement has, in the circumstances, publically perpetrated, by insinuation and deduction, the identification of Tan Sri Cecil Abraham and his son Sunil as the possible culprits due to a strange series of coincidences, which in themselves are indeed unfortunate.
I wish to place on record that I find these allegations extremely surprising as I know Cecil personally. He is a barrister of the highest integrity with at least 40 years of impeccable service to the Malaysian Bar and is held in high esteem by all those who have had the privilege of making his acquaintance, both personally and professionally.

Lawyer not part of MACC review on Bala’s SD probe, says panel chief
Assistant News Editor
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 20 – Prominent lawyer Tan Sri Cecil Abraham was not part of the graftbuster review team that had closed the file on P. Balasubramaniam’s controversial second sworn statement over the 2006 murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, the head of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Operations Review Panel (PPO) said today.
Abraham had been named as the mystery lawyer suspected to have drafted the private investigator’s contradictory second statutory declaration (SD) by several high-profile figures questioning a possible conflict of interest as the former also sits on board of the MACC review panel.
But Phang stressed that he could not confirm whether Abraham was the lawyer allegedly involved in the second SD, and added that the onus was on the latter to clarify the matter.

“Cecil Abraham is a very senior lawyer and is known to be a close advisor of Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail. I have always questioned his impartiality.
“Why is everyone so afraid to mention that the Tan Sri lawyer is Cecil Abraham and that the legal firm is ZulRafique and partners?” he said.

A melodrama of sex, bribery, murder
Najib Tun Razak has yet to fight an election as PM, but his future is mired in fresh troubles.
by Jonathan Manthorpe
Najib (Tun) Razak has been Malaysia’s Prime Minister since early in 2009, but he has yet to fight an election and speculation is now rife among the country’s chattering classes that he may not survive at the helm until the next national vote is due in April.
What is powering the rumour mill is yet more twists and turns in the melodrama of sex, bribery and murder stemming from when Najib was defence minister a decade ago.
The latest revelations place Najib far more into the centre of events that led to the murder by two of his bodyguards of the Mongolian fashion model, translator and mistress of his chief policy adviser, (Abdul) Razak Baginda.
Equally compelling is that the new allegations are coming from Deepak Jaikishan, a former confidante of Najib’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, and a man well-connected to the upper echelons of the ruling United Malays National Organization (Umno).
“It was this panel that decided there was no evidence to investigate the allegations made by either Bala or Deepak,” Zaid added.
Questions over MACC-lawyer link to Bala’s second SD
December 17, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17 ― The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was today dragged into a row over questions surrounding a lawyer on its operations panel who is alleged to have drafted private investigator P. Balasubramaniam’s controversial second sworn statement on the 2006 death of Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Former minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim suggested today that a key member of the MACC’s five check-and-balance mechanism responsible for closing the file on the case may have had a direct hand in doing so, fuelling questions on the extent of a possible cover-up into the explosive crime that has put two elite police commandos on death row and sent the private investigator into exile.
The lawyer-turned-politician wrote in his blog that both the Attorney-General and the MACC have “conveniently refused to investigate the allegations made by the private investigator P. Balasubramaniam, who apparently got the information from Abdul Razak Baginda, and whose claims have been corroborated by carpet merchant Deepak Jaikishan”.
He reminded Malaysians that Balasubramaniam ― popularly known as PI Bala ― had made a second statutory declaration (SD) cancelling his first sworn statement made a day earlier that the police had suppressed key evidence.
“This second declaration was prepared by a well-known lawyer whom he did not know. Deepak named this famous lawyer in an interview with Harakah.
“If one probes a little further, one will find that the same famous lawyer sits as a member of the MACC’s operations review panel,” Zaid, a one-time de facto law minister during the Abdullah administration, wrote.
However, he stopped short of naming the lawyer.
Senior lawyer, son in spotlight over Bala’s SD2
A senior lawyer and his son, also a lawyer, has been dragged into the limelight in the latest expose by carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan on what allegedly took place over former private-eye P Balasubramaniam’s second statutory declaration (SD) saga.
This was revealed in a series of explosive revelations by Deepak (left), who claimed to be personally involved in the “flipping” of PI Bala who had just signed an SD earlier linking Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak with murdered Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
The lawyer’s name was supposedly mentioned by Deepak in a video interview with PAS organ Harakah which was posted on YouTube, with the name edited out.
Bar Council must expose lawyer behind Bala’s second SD, says activist
Assistant News Editor
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 16 ― Political activist Haris Ibrahim will lobby the Bar Council to reveal the identity of the senior lawyer who drafted private investigator P. Balasubramaniam’s controversial second sworn statement on the 2006 murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Haris, formerly a law practitioner himself, said he will file a request with the council tomorrow, citing grounds that the senior lawyer had committed “the gravest of sins” by drafting the statutory declaration (SD) without first consulting Balasubramaniam.
Karpal Singh, “I lodge this report so that a thorough police investigation could be launched into the matter as what was uttered by Deepak could constitute an offence under section 202 of the Penal Code…”
A police report has been lodged in Penang against carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan for allegedly having knowledge of a crime but failing to report it to law enforcers.
DAP national chief Karpal Singh lodged the report in Penang this afternoon under Section 13 of the Criminal Procedure Code which states:
“13(1) every person aware (a) of the commission of an offence under Section 302 of the Penal Code shall in absence of reasonable excuse, the burden of proving which shall like upon the person so aware, immediately give information to the officer in charge of the nearest police station…”
Karpal said section 302 of the Penal Code states that “whoever commits murder shall be punishable with death”.
A police report will be lodged in Penang against carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan for allegedly having knowledge of a crime but failing to report it to law enforcers.
“He had knowledge of a murder but did not report it. He has committed an offence under the law,” said DAP national chairperson Karpal Singh during his speech at the party’s 16th national congress in Penang.
Karpal said the latest revelation by Deepak in Malaysiakini that he would rather not be involved in something as murky as murder means that fresh investigations must commence immediately.
“If Prime Minister Najib Razak is involved, then something must be done.
“What Deepak said has substance. There must be fresh investigations,” he said.

Deepak: MACC more interested in a ‘cover-up’
‘Carpet man’ Deepak Jaikishan has asked MACC to reopen their investigations related to the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu
PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was more interested in covering up, rather than investigating, the secret dealings following the 2006 murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
This was the claim by controversial businessman Deepak Jaikishan, who said that the anti-graft authority had recorded his statement over his role but had taken no further action to follow up.
“I was called by MACC for investigation but the MACC was more interested to cover up the matter,” the well-connected carpet trader said in an interview with PAS mouthpiece Harakahdaily, which was posted in a video online recently.
“I have explained the whole matter. But there was no action. I think they have allowed the case to be closed.”

THERE IS NO ESCAPE: Najib, Gani must respond to the latest Altantuya allegations
Written by Gobind Singh Deo
Malaysia will forever remain in a dark cloud over the killing of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu because of the failure on part of our criminal justice system to secure complete justice for her.
The Attorney General Tan Sri Gani Patail, should respond to the allegations made by Deepak that “justice has not yet been done “in the case involving Altantuya.
Blogger’s Summary of article
1 The AG should tell us, who ordered the killing and why? This is the most important aspect of the case which has not been answered until now.
2 It is also surprising to note the Prime Ministers silence in this matter.
3 It is said that “Justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done”.
4 I challenge the Prime Minister to direct a full inquiry into these aspects of this case. We must get to the truth. The truth must prevail.

Finally, UMNO counter-attacks but Deepak says, “Show the WHOLE video!”
Carpet trader-cum-property developer Deepak Jaikishin issued a challenge to pro-Umno bloggers who uploaded an edited version of a video on the Internet featuring him allegedly confessing to being a PKR stooge to show the entire footage instead.
But he disputed the pro-Umno bloggers’ account of what had transpired at the meeting and claimed that his remarks were taken out of context.
“What I said is what I said, what they write is what they want to hear… Please run the video from beginning to end…,” he told Malaysiakini, referring to the transcript which appeared in the edited video.
“If you look at the video, they worded it differently from what was said.”

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak played a major role in the retraction of private investigator P Balasubramaniam’s statutory declaration (SD) in 2008, according to carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan.
In an interview with Harakah, which has been uploaded to Youtube, Deepak said that Najib had done so to head off possible action taken by his enemies within Umno, aimed at thwarting his premiership ambitions.
“But there was a faction within Umno that did not want Najib to be prime minister. They had their own interest. They were ready.
“Someone from this group will come up with a SD to explain who had done this cruel deed and identify the person who instructed him. This is at very high level,” said Deepak.

|Harakahdaily,||13 December 2012|
Dec 13: After revealing how he had been recruited by the family of prime minister Najib Razak to play a role in the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder saga, carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan has followed up with another startling revelation.
This time, he named Najib’s younger brother Mohd Nazim Razak, an architect by profession who sits in some 25 company boards of directors, as the person who paid P Balasubramaniam to come out with a second statutory declaration denying another one he issued a day earlier which among others accused Najib of also having affair with the Altantuya.
■ L-R: Rosmah, Nazim and Deepak
“I affirm what was earlier said that Datuk Nazim joined the meeting to facilitate whatever needed to be done. My involvement was just to get everyone together,” Deepak told news portal Malaysiakini yesterday.
Saying he believed Altantuya’s ‘spirit’ was after him for the role he played to cover up the truth in her case, Deepak had said that he could no longer keep his silence, adding that he regretted ‘helping a drowning friend’.
“You cannot be afraid of any persons – if they are angels then maybe, but since there are just mere mortals, then you shouldn’t be,” he was quoted by Malaysiakini as saying.
Malaysiakini had tried to contact the premier’s younger sibling for his response to no avail, though a chance encounter between Nazim (left) and the news portal’s journalists during Friday prayers at Masjid Negara in December 2009 yielded a curt “I have nothing to say” from the architect.
EXCLUSIVE Carpet trader Deepak Jaikishin has named the premier’s younger brother Mohd Nazim Abdul Razak as the person who paid P Balasubramaniam in return for the former private eye signing his controversial second statutory declaration (SD).
“I affirm what was earlier said that Datuk Nazim joined the meeting to facilitate whatever needed to be done. My involvement was just to get everyone together,” he told Malaysiakini in an interview yesterday.
He said that he did this as a favour to PM’s wife Rosmah Mansor after receiving a call from her.
According to Deepak, the money paid to Balasubramaniam came from “Datuk Nazim and his resources”.
“Yes,” he replied when asked again to confirm that the “Datuk Nazim” he mentioned was indeed Najib’s brother.
Apparently promised RM5 million for his about-turn, Balasubramaniam said he received a total of RM750,000 in instalments before the payments eventually stopped.

‘Rosmah told me to look for Bala’
Deepak Jaikishan alleges that the PM’s wife rang him at about 6pm on the day private investigator P Balasubramaniam made the first statutory declaration.
KUALA LUMPUR: Carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan today claimed that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s wife Rosmah Mansor told him to look for private investigator P Balasubramaniam on the day the latter’s statutory declaration (SD) was made public.
Revealing the identity of “the female friend” whom he mentioned at his recent press conferences, Deepak claimed that Rosmah called up many people for favours on the day Balasubramaniam disclosed his first SD, which linked Najib to the murder of Mongolian national Altantuyaa Shaariibuu.
IF ROSMAH CAN WRITE A BOOK ABOUT HERSELF, SO CAN DEEPAK (ABOUT ROSMAH, NOT HIMSELF)!
“With due respect to Datin Seri, I plan to launch it a day after her autobiography is released,” Deepak added.
Controversial businessperson Deepak Jaikishan is going to write a 26-page tell-all booklet in which he plans to link the wife of the prime minister, Rosmah Mansor, with the saga of murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu.
This, he said, was his own direct response to Rosmah’s planned autobiography, in which she is to include a chapter dedicated to answering allegations levelled against her.
“Datin Seri Rosmah made a very, very good decision to publish her autobiography.
“On the suggestion of a friend from the media, I decided this morning to announce that I too will be launching two books,” Deepak told Malaysiakini in an interview today.
The first, to be launched next Monday, he said, would be a simple 26-page booklet.
“(The booklet will) start with the day I received the first call till today, about what has transpired, the truth, all the facts.
“I got a lot of SMSes and calls (from Rosmah). I will gather these and put them all together.”

Anwar: I’m not behind Deepak, Musa
The opposition leader denies playing a role in the startling revelations by the carpet dealer and ex-IGP.
KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has denied involvement in the startling revelations made by carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan and former inspector-general of police Musa Hassan.
However, Anwar stressed that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein should respond to the accusations directly.
“Musa has been coming out with very serious allegations against the minister of home affairs. I think coming from the former IGP and involving the security of the nation, it should warrant a response from the minister. Whether you agree or disagree, you cannot dismiss it,” he told reporters at the PKR headquarters today.
“Similarly, coming from Deepak, who is known to be direct associate of Najib and Rosmah [Mansor]. You can’t just be dismissive.
“If it is just a scurrilous attack. I would understand that Najib would dismiss it. But this is specific, that he is involved to reverse a statutory declaration, so, answer lah,” he added.
He originally thought he would be in danger but when he met the Umno man, “they were very civil”.

Deepak: I will not be silenced
However, the carpet trader says he agreed to “sit still” for the last day of the Umno AGM after a meeting with a high-ranking Umno supreme council member.
KUALA LUMPUR: Deepak Jaikishan claimed that there was an attempt by a high ranking Umno man to ‘silence’ him following the various the interviews the carpet trader has given in the past few days.
Late Friday night, Deepak said he received a call by a “senior Umno supreme council member” asking him to meet at the Grand Dorsett Hotel in Subang. The man, who he refused to name, seemed aggressive, Deepak claimed.
Deepak said that he subsequently agreed to meet the person, but brought along some extra protection for his safety.
The meeting was also attended by a few pro-government bloggers, and Deepak said he was told not to make any more noise, at least until the end of the Umno AGM which was yesterday.
“They told me that I am under surveillance…I was given a caution because yesterday was their closing ceremony. They practically warned me not to have a press conference until they finish their convention,” he told FMT.
“I told them you cannot stop me from having press conferences… even if I have to go to the Istana Negara, I would do it. If they really force me… I would go in front of the palace and petition the King lah,” he said.
However, Deepak said he agreed to “give due respect” and cancelled all his media interviews he had lined up for Saturday.
He said that he would be giving more press conferences to explain things in full soon.
Deepak tells Ropiaah to quit as senator to save Umno
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 30 — Controversial businessman Deepak Jaikishan wants Senator Datuk Raja Ropiaah Abdullah to quit her parliamentary post to save Umno from being embarrassed by her cheating case.
“In order to save Umno, I am asking her to quit as senator,” he told The Malaysian Insider in a telephone call.
The Selangor Wanita Umno chief had allegedly sold one parcel for RM2 million in cash and a RM16 million overdraft facility in a “joint venture” with Guppyunip Sdn Bhd, a company specialising in plasticware, prompting the carpet dealer to put a caveat on the land in Bukit Raja and lodge a police report last July.
Lim Kit Siang for Malaysia
Its Najib and not Zahid who should respond to Deepak’s most serious allegations at the UMNO General Assembly tomorrow
Defence Minister and UMNO Vice President Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi has said that he would respond tomorrow to allegations made by businessman Deepak Jaikishan on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s family which is also related to the high-profile and long-running Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case.
It is not Zahid but Najib himself who should be responding in his winding-up speech at the 66th UMNO General Assembly tomorrow, for three reasons.
Firstly, Deepak’s allegations pertain to Najib’s family, that he had paid an undisclosed sum for the premier’s intervention to allow him to come in as a party in a RM100 million defence ministry project in 2005 when Najib was the Defence Minister – stitching a deal with a Selangor UMNO Wanita leader’s company where he would participate as a third party in the project. As Najib is not only around but chief of the pack in UMNO, he should respond as whatever Zahid could say would only be hearsay with neither credibility nor legitimacy.
Secondly, the Deepak connection with the high-profile and long-running Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case. Deepak has expressed regret of his involvement in getting private investigator P Balasubramaniam to make a second Statutory Declaration which reversed an earlier one linking Najib to murdered Mongolian Altantuya. Deepak said in interviews that he got involved in Bala’s case to help “the family of the prime minister”. Again, Zahid’s response to Deepak’s allegation cannot be satisfactory as only Najib is in a position to respond with any credibility.
Thirdly, this is an acid test of Najib’s UMNO Presidential Address yesterday which had asserted that Pakatan Rakyat should not be given a chance to win the 13th General Election as UMNO/Barisan Nasional could boast of great success in governing Malaysia in the past five decades – one of which is the “efficacy of national institutions”.
The sordid Deepak/Bala/Altantuya scandals are shameful testimony, not to success but corruption and subversion, of the “efficacy of national institutions” as Malaysia would not have reached such a sorry pass in the Altantuya murder case if various national institutions, whether the Police, the Judiciary, the Attorney-General’s Chambers, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the Malaysian Press had maintained and upheld their integrity, independence and professionalism.
Is Najib prepared to fully vindicate himself, his government and the country by subjecting himself to a full and independent public inquiry into the sordid Deepak/Bala/Altantuya scandals and announce it at the UMNO General Assembly winding-up tomorrow?
If Najib is prepared to submit himself to a full and independent public inquiry into the Deepak/Bala/Altantuya scandals, his apology in his UMNO Presidential Speech on behalf of the UMNO leadership for any “mistake” or “oversight” would be a bona fide one. If not, his “apology” is just mere rhetoric.
|2:46PM Nov 30, 2012|
The man who claimed to have been coerced to reverse his sworn testimony linking then deputy prime minister Najib Razak with murdered Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaaribuu, is pleased that the truth has finally emerged.
Private investigator P Balasubramaniam said carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan, who was involved in getting him to reverse his statutory declaration (SD), did “the correct thing”.
Umno vice president and Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said he will respond to allegations made by businessman Deepak Jaikishan on Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s family tomorrow.
“Tomorrow I will respond in my winding up speech (at the Umno general assembly),” he told Malaysiakini today when asked.
|Harakahdaily,||29 November 2012|
Nov 29: For Deepak Jaikishan to come out in the open and drop bombshell on prime minister Najib Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor ahead of UMNO’s 66th Annual General Assembly, he must have received assurance of his safety discreetly, claims PAS vice president Husam Musa.
“I am convinced, Deepak will not make statement if he did not receive any guarantee from anyone. This means, there’s internal party behind Deepak’s movement,” said Husam in a statement today published in his blog today.
Over the past two days, Deepak had went into a media blitz, baring details on his relationship with Najib’s family and his involvement in private investigator P Balasubramaniam’s saga.
Bala, who was the private detective hired by Abdul Razak Baginda, the former aide of Najib who was acquitted by the court of murdering Altantuya, issued a statutory declaration on July 3, 2008, before retracting it the next day.
Not long after, he fled the country, saying he feared for his life and his family’s safety.
In 2009, Bala claimed he had been paid RM5 million by Deepak to retract his first statutory declaration.
Husam, who is also a Kelantan state exco member, said Deepak is a businessman not a politician per say, so the damaging statement made ahead of UMNO AGM must be a calculated move.
Against the backdrop, Husam said UMNO has a better chance of surviving in the election if they could let go Najib.
“Letting go of Najib before election can raise some hope on UMNO to continue its survival, under a new premise of a prime minister, it usually brings a new hope,” said Husam.
The Kuala Lumpur High Court was told today that Najib Abdul Razak had in 2006, as the then-defence minister, consented to the transfer of a 223.3-acre (89.332ha) parcel of land in Bukit Raja, Selangor, from Awan Megah Sdn Bhd to a nominee company owned by businessman Deepak Jaikishian.
However, Justice Zabariah Mohd Yusof did not allow Deepak to produce the letter dated Sept 25, 2006, from Awan Megah to Najib as evidence, since he did not file it with the court earlier, during case management, as part of his bundle of documents.
Najib, as testified by Deepak today, consented to this deal and wanted the Defence Ministry deputy secretary-general to look into the transfer.
Deepak told the court that he helped arrange the meeting between Awan Megah, represented by its director, Senator Raja Ropiah Raja Abdullah, and Najib, through Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor, whom he had met earlier.

Deepak to reveal more dirt from under the carpet
Controversial businessman Deepak Jaikishan, however, wants protection for himself as he would be talking about the ‘prime minister and his family’.
KUALA LUMPUR: Businessman Deepak Jaikishan, who said he “can’t get the ghost of Altantuya out of me”, yesterday promised to reveal more details on the behind-the-scenes dealings surrounding the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
But said that he required protection for himself first as he would be talking about the “prime minister and his family”.
In a press conference he called yesterday, Deepak, a well-connected carpet dealer, said he is appearing now to clear his conscience as “the ghost of Altantuya continues to haunt” him.
Carpet dealer sought refund in land deal, says Wanita Umno leader
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 29 — Lawyers for Senator Raja Datuk Ropiaah Abdullah today denied her company cheated Deepak Jaikishan’s firm out of a multi-million ringgit land deal as the controversial carpet dealer had asked for a refund.
The controversial businessman has been telling the media this week that the Selangor Wanita Umno chief had stolen his land and resold a portion to a plasticware maker in a joint-venture development.
Raja Ropiaah’s Awan Megah (M) Sdn Bhd’s lawyer Saseedharan Menon suggested that Deepak has no claims over three parcels of land in Bukit Raja as his company Astacanggih Sdn Bhd’s land bond had expired.
The defence also highlighted that Deepak’s solicitors had sent a section 218 notice under the 1955 Companies Act demanding a refund of the RM13 million already paid to Awan Megah, thus terminating any agreements that they had.
“(Do you agree that) you cannot now ask for the land to be transferred?” Menon asked, to which Deepak disagreed.
“We have issued the land bond, and it can be renewed at any time,” Deepak told the court during cross-examination by the defence.
“Do you know who ordered the Altantuya killing?”
“No, no, no. I was not involved. I was not aware of what happened on that day.”
Bala’s U-turn foiled Anwar-Umno’s Altantuya expose’
The hastily drafted second statutory declaration (SD) by private investigator P Balasubramaniam, who had withdrawn his earlier accusation linking Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu, was part of an effort to thwart a planned confession on the latter’s murder organised by politicians from both sides of the divide, claimed businessperson Deepak Jaikishan.
The first SD, he claimed, was to set the table before one of the individuals involved in the murder would confess to it and expose who had instructed the murder, but personalities named in the first SD had moved in to prevent that from happening.
Excerpts from the article:
1 Someone named in the SD will come out to confess?
No, one of the people involved in the Altantuya incident itself was going to come out and confess as a result of the SD.
2 Why would the SD trigger such a response?
Because there was a concentrated effort. There were two factions here – you had Bala sitting down with (opposition leader) Anwar (Ibrahim) and you had another faction who didn’t want the people named in the first SD to come to power.
They were determined, although they were from different sides, to work together to achieve this and both had the power to do so. Hence the absolute concern.
3 And those who pushed the second SD was those wanting to ensure Najib became prime minister?
Yes. I think the only reason I got involved in helping with the second SD was to protect the interest of Najib. There is no other logical reason, is there?

WHO IN UMNO is Deepak now working for: Is Najib still tenable as PM?
Written by Chua Jui Meng
DEEPAK Jaikishan’s shocking and damning revelations of his ties with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor is serious and embarrassing to Malaysia.
Deepak indirectly exposes Najib and Rosmah’s link with the murder case of Mongolian interpreter Altantuya Shaariibuu via his involvement in private investigator P. Balasubramaniam (PI Bala)’s statutory declarations.
Deepak also said his mistake was to jump in to help friends – referring to Najib, who was then a defence minister, and his wife.
The ongoing RM6.7 billion scandalous purchase of two second-hand French-made Scorpene submarines which is being investigated by a French court is also damaging Najib and Malaysia.
Who in Umno stands to gain the most
Deepak’s timing to spill the beans on Najib and Rosmah is also very suspicious – coming a day before Najib is scheduled to deliver his presidential address at the opening of an annual Umno General Assembly.
The immediate question is: Who has managed to get Deepak to expose Najib and Rosmah?
It can be answered with a question: Who stands to gain the most in toppling the Umno president?
Reproduced below are PI Bala’s original (1st statutory declaration), a report on Deepak spilling the beans on Najib and Rosmah, and a background story on the Altantuya murder:
This is PI Bala’s original statutory declaration:
I, Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal (NRIC NO: xxxxxx-xx-6235) a Malaysian Citizen of full age and residing at [deleted], Selangor, do solemly and sincerely declare as follows :-
3. Sometime in June or July 2006, I was employed by Abdul Razak Baginda for a period of 10 days to look after him at his office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang, between the hours of 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. each working day as apparently he was experiencing disturbances from a third party.

Deepak to sue Najib and “HER” for cancellation of govt contracts to his firms
Written by Wong Choon Mei, Malaysia Chronicle
Controversial carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan has opened an explosive new can of worms for embattled Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor.
Blaming the first couple for the cancellation of a slew of business contracts awarded to his family and firms, the 40-year-old has threatened not only to reveal more “details” about a sensational statutory declaration connected to the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder but to also sue the various ministries involved including the PM himself.
Deepak also suggested he would take action against “her” for influencing “members of her family” into cancelling the government contracts enjoyed by his firms after he gave an interview in 2010 to blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin on the statutory declaration. When asked if ‘her’ meant Rosmah, he declined to confirm or to deny.
According to Deepak, Najib bypassed the Cabinet when he later also approved Ropiaah’s request to transfer the land titles from Awan Megah to a nominee company so as to facilitate the sale to Astacanggih.

NAJIB’S FINGERPRINTS all over Raja Ropiaah’s alleged RM400mil Mindef land scam
Written by Wong Choon Mei, Malaysia Chronicle
Like it or not, Prime Minister Najib Razak’s fingerprints are all over the latest Umno corruption scandal to be exposed – a Ministry of Defense privatization scam involving Selangor Wanita Umno chief Raja Ropiaah Raja Abdullah, carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan, a proposed but still uncompleted defense research center and land worth RM400mil at current prices.
The 40-year-old Deepak, a good friend of Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor, turned ‘whistle blower’ on the first couple when his firm Astacanggih Sdn Bhd found itself “robbed” of a portion of the land it had bought. from Raja Ropiaah’s Awan Megah (M) Sdn Bhd. The land had been privatized by the Defense Ministry to Ropiaah’s firm.
“Without Najib’s OK, Raja Ropiaah would not have been awarded the deal by the Ministry of Defense,”Deepak told Malaysia Chronicle.
Who is Raja Ropiaah?
Ropiaah was appointed a Senator in April by Prime Minister Najib Razak, replacing Shahrizat who was forced to step down as Women’s minister following the NFC corruption scandal. There is speculation among Wanita members that Ropiaah has been ‘earmarked’ to take over top Women’s post.

DEEPAK BOMBSHELL: Wanita’s Raja Ropiaah ‘stole’ land while Najib’s family made ‘millions’
Written by Wong Choon Mei, Malaysia Chronicle
It looks like Deepak Jaikishan, known for his close ties to Rosmah Mansor the wife of Prime Minister Najib Razak, is no longer so happy with the controversial first couple or their Umno party mates.
Deepak, a carpet trader who is branching out into bigger business, has accused Umno women’s wing leader Senator Raja Ropiaah Abdullah of ‘stealing’ land worth RM400 million from his company Astacanggih Sdn Bhd and reselling a portion of it to a third party.
During an exclusive interview with Malaysia Chronicle, Deepak also alleged that a member of Najib’s family had taken a ‘commission’ worth millions for Najib’s role in getting the land owned by the Ministry of Defense privatized to Raja Ropiaah in 2005 under a project called Puspahanas.
“Ropiaah has no previous experience at all but based on Najib’s recommendation, she got the deal,” Deepak told Malaysia Chronicle.
He declined to name who in Najib’s family had allegedly pocketed the ‘commission’ but there is speculation that it may have been Rosmah herself as she usually takes care of Najib’s business matters.

Carpet dealer to testify in lawsuit against Wanita Umno leader tomorrow
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 28 — Controversial businessman Deepak Jaikishan will take the stand tomorrow in his lawsuit against the government and a Wanita Umno leader’s company that allegedly cheated him by reselling a portion of land the carpet dealer had bought previously.
Deepak said he will personally conduct the case filed by his company, Astacanggih Sdn Bhd against the Wanita Umno leader, her companies, the Selangor Land and Mines Office and the Ministry of Defence for failing to hand over three parcels of land in Bukit Raja in Selangor totalling 223.33 acres to him.
“I am representing myself. I have evidence to how she stole my land,” he told reporters from news portals this evening.
Deepak Jaikishan is a supplier of carpet and other interior products to Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor. He claimed to have met Rosmah in 2004 or 2005 when she first visited his family shop. Apart from Najib and Rosmah, Deepak also supplies carpets to clients such as the government, opposition party members, royalties, various MNCs (multinational corporations), GLCs (government-linked companies) and other institutions.
2. Controversies: Deepak rubbished Raja Petra Kamarudin‘s claims that he was Rosmah’s “confidante” and “toyboy”, saying instead that she and her husband, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, had been kind enough to write commendation letters and introduce his family’s carpet business to new clients. He also laughed off Raja Petra’s allegations that he intended to bring private eye P. Balasubramaniam back to Malaysia to file a new statutory declaration to absolve the premier and his wife of any involvement in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu. Deepak, however, admitted that he had met Balasubramaniam on two occasions after a mutual friend — an officer from the police’ serious crimes ‘D9’ division by the name of Suresh — had introduced them. He said Balasubramaniam and Suresh were “clubbing boys” with his younger brother, Danesh. Deepak added that he had never issued the two cheques allegedly totalling RM5 million to Balasubramaniam as payment for retracting his first statutory declaration implicating Najib and Rosmah in Altantuya’s murder.
The carpet trader told Malaysiakini yesterday that he regretted helping a female friend in the case involving private eye P Balasubramaniam.
Deepak says he paid *****’s family for land deal
EXCLUSIVE Businessperson Deepak Jaikishan claimed that he paid the family of ***** an undisclosed sum for the premier’s intervention to allow him to come in as a party in a Defence Ministry project deal.
According to Deepak, he stitched a deal with a Selangor Umno leader’s company where he would participate as a third party in the proposed project.
This began, Deepak explained, with a privatisation agreement in 2005 where the company was tasked to work on a Defence Ministry project in Putrajaya.
In exchange for the estimated RM100 million project, which the company was to build at its own cost, the company would be paid RM20 million by the government and would acquire 223.3 acres of government land in Klang.
However, Deepak said the politician did not have the credit-worthiness at that time to secure a land bond of RM72.5 million necessary for the project and had therefore approached him for help.
The deal, he added, would require him to secure the RM72.5 million land bond and top it up with RM23 million in cash payments to the company.
In return, Deepak said the politician’s company was to give him ownership of the said property, which is a piece of prime land adjacent to the now booming Setia Alam township.
The names of the politician and the company involved have been withheld pending their reply to Malaysiakini‘s request for comments.

Deepak says he paid *****’s family for land deal
|Harakahdaily,||27 November 2012|
Nov 27: A controversial figure in the saga of P Balasubramaniam, the private investigator who issued a damning statutory declaration implicating prime minister Najib Razak of an affair with murdered Mongolian citizen Altantuya Shaariibuu only to retract it the next day, has decided to come clean on his much talked relationship with Najib’s family.
Deepak Jaikishancontacted Harakahdaily to tell his story, by first confirming speculation of his ties with Najib and his wife, Rosmah Mansor.
“I do know Datuk Seri [Najib] and Puan Seri [Rosmah]. I am a carpet supplier and involved in business. Where there is business opportunity, we ask for their support,” he told Harakahdaily during an interview at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
EXCLUSIVE Businessperson Deepak Jaikishan regretted his involvement in getting private investigator P Balasubramaniam to make a second statutory declaration (SD), which reversed an earlier one linking Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to murdered Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
In an interview with Malaysiakini last night, Deepak (left) said he had only become involved at the request of a “female friend” associated with the parties who would be affected by the fallout of the first statutory declaration.
“I was asked to help by a friend, I agreed to help her because I could see the repercussions will affect their entire group. It was to me – getting involved in this whole Bala fiasco – a mistake,” he said.
“I had no business being there, I am a businessman. I regret helping a friend whom I thought was true… I am not supposed to be involved in this James Bond movie.”
Deepak declined to elaborate on the identity of the female friend.
Deepak declined to elaborate on the identity of the female friend.
He is, however, known to be closely linked to the premier’s wife Rosmah Mansor, whom he said was like an “older sister” to him.
The P Balasubramaniam-Deepak Jaikishan connection
Balasubramaniam, who had gone public with the first SD on July 3, 2008 had abruptly withdrawn it at another press conference the following day.
Accompanied by lawyer M Arulampalam that day, Balasubramaniam had produced a second SD, claiming that he had made the first one under duress and fled the country the next day.
Balasubramaniam (left in photo) re-emerged on Nov 12, 2009 in the form of a five-part YouTube video interview – believed to be shot in India – retracting his second SD and claiming that he had only made it after being offered RM5 million by Deepak.
Deepak, who only addressed the controversy on April 6, 2011 after whistleblower Raja Petra Kamarudin revived the matter, dismissed his links to Balasubramaniam as a mere clubbing mate.’I brought everyone together for SD 2.0′
However, in the interview yesterday, Deepak said there was a “tinge of truth” to what the private eye had been claiming in the SD saga.

Balasubramaniam’s lawyer, Americk Singh Sidhu, said he had been instructed by his client to respond to independent Bayan Baru MP Zahrain Mohamed Hashim’s press conference in Parliament yesterday.
Zahrain had yesterday demanded MACC to investigate the individual involved in sponsoring Balasubramaniam’s flight and stay in London.
In a cheeky response, Americk said that Balasubramaniam fully supports Zahrain’s suggestion.
“This is for the simple reason the money he is using to pay for his trip to London and his hotel accommodation there is derived from the funds he has received from Deepak at the behest of Rosmah, who ultimately and unwittingly is the sponsor,” said the lawyer in a statement.
