Azilah not the first to speak out after Najib ousted, says ex-associate
As far as Deepak Jaikishan is concerned, the statutory declaration (SD) implicating Najib Abdul Razak in the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu contains the truth.
He also said Azilah Hadri is not the first person to expose the former premier’s alleged wrongdoing after the last general election.
Prior to this, the carpet merchant – who was once a close associate of Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor – said these individuals feared reprisals.
“He (Azilah) is not the only one who has come out [to reveal issues] after Najib is no longer the PM.
“Many senior government officers have testified in court about Najib’s involvement in corruption, SRC (International) and 1MDB (cases).
“We are not talking about one or two people. Many have come out to disclose information… (including former auditor-general) Ambrin Buang,” he told Malaysiakini in an interview.
Like them, the businessperson said Azilah (photo), a former police Special Action Unit (UTK) officer, did not have the opportunity to reveal the purported truth.
In 2015, the Federal Court reinstated Azilah and another former UTK member Sirul Azhar Umar’s conviction and death sentence for the murder.
Sirul, however, fled to Australia after the Court of Appeal acquitted the pair 2013.
Last week, Malaysiakini reported that Azilah, who is on death row in Kajang prison, had filed the SD with regard to his application seeking a re-trial and review of the Federal Court’s judgment.
“When Najib was PM and Azilah was sentenced to death, he took a bullet for this matter. He could not go against the PM,” alleged Deepak.
“Sirul was a bit smarter, he ran off to Australia because he knew that Australia had certain laws against the death sentence but in the case of Azilah, he didn’t think that far.
“But now he has to clear his name. It is not just about Azilah committing a murder, Azilah’s next seven generations will bear the brunt that he killed someone, the stigma to the family,” he added.
‘She was pregnant with Najib’s son’
Deepak also made a startling allegation that Najib ordered the murder because Altantuya was pregnant with his son.
Asked how he knew about this, the businessperson claimed that Rosmah had informed him.
When pointed out that Sirul previously stated that Altantuya was not pregnant while Azilah also did not mention this in his SD, Deepak implied that Sirul cannot be trusted.
“Sirul has made various statements which have served different prime ministers, and different parties who lobbied to him.
“I don’t think you can take Sirul’s total word for it. You have to go and look at people who have been consistent about it, people who know…,” he added.
Asked why Azilah’s allegations should be believed when Deepak claimed Sirul cannot be trusted, the carpet merchant insisted that Najib ordered the killing and it was because Altantuya was pregnant.
“Let us put everything aside. Can you give me one rational reason why Najib (allegedly) ordered the murder?”
“Najib is right, he says ‘I got many political enemies, why didn’t I murder them’. They were not pregnant with his son. As simple as that,” he added.
Deepak also alleged that Najib ordered the murder because of Rosmah.
“Rosmah created a big havoc in the house when she found out about Altantuya.
“I think it was three or four days before the murder that she found out about Altantuya’s involvement with Najib, and that there was a child,” he claimed.
Najib: Utter rubbish
In an immediate response to Malaysiakini, the former premier had two words to describe Deepak’s allegations: “Utter rubbish.”
“Do you expect this person to only divulge this ‘little bit of info’ only now after more than 13 years and years after he wrote his various books?” he asked.
Najib has repeatedly maintained that he has never met Altantuya. However, in his SD, Azilah claimed that the former premier and the latter’s close associate met the deceased in London.
This afternoon, Najib performed a sumpah laknat, which is an oath beseeching God to curse those who are in the wrong, to deny the allegations in Azilah’s SD and reiterated that he never met the Mongolian national.
Deepak, however, dismissed this as an attempt at manipulation.
“I am shocked because he (Najib) says he never did it and he will be cursed if he is lying. But he is already cursed, he can’t be cursed again.
“He has been cursed at the worst by the Almighty. Isn’t it obvious to him that he doesn’t need to be cursed again?
“He has come to a point that he wants to come to a masjid (mosque), to a house of God, and lie…
“Simply because he wants history to prove him not guilty, hoping that one day, his party and his people (would) come to power (again). There is enough evidence to charge him, he must be charged,” he added.
‘I suffered for what I did’
Deepak also claimed that he is pursuing this issue to ensure that justice is served.
“I made a vow that no matter what, even if Najib destroys me, I will make sure she gets her justice we are almost there,” he said.
Asked what had changed when he had played a key role in the alleged conspiracy to cover-up the murder, Deepak replied: “I suffered a lot because of what I did.”
“Before the Altantuya case, I was doing well, business was good. But because of the Altantuya case everything got bad, part of the curse came to me also.
“I know one or two individuals, I don’t want to mention their names, but they are in the doldrums for getting involved in the Altantuya matter.
“One is very sick. This Altantuya thing needs to be settled. We need to give her justice. It is because of the child, the child was totally innocent,” he added.
Previously, Deepak said Najib and Rosmah engaged him to convince the late private investigator P Balasubramaniam to retract his SD that the former premier was in a relationship with Altantuya.

Altantuya case: Police recorded Deepak’s statement regarding Najib, Rosmah
The police are working to complete their probe into the alleged involvement of former premier Najib Abdul Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu, said inspector-general of police Fuzi Harun.
Speaking to reporters this morning, Fuzi said they have recorded a statement from businessperson Deepak Jaikishan, who made the allegation during an interview with Al-Jazeera recently.
“We will take all the necessary actions including recording the statements needed (to facilitate the investigation).
“We have recorded some, including Deepak’s. The rest will follow soon.
“I can’t give the exact timeline (for the questioning), as we need to make an appointment, to pick the right time to interview him.
“We will solve this as soon as we can,” he said during a press conference after the launch of an anti-corruption seminar at Royal Malaysian Police College in Cheras this morning.
While Fuzi did not elaborate who he meant by “him”, it is believed that he was referring to Najib.
It was reported that Deepak had, in a recent recording which was uploaded online but has since been deleted, had implicated Najib and Rosmah in the Mongolian model’s murder.
Following this, Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh in his debate in parliament on Monday urged the police to bring in the couple for questioning.

Deepak Jaikishan tell all about Najib,Rosmah involved in murder Altantuya & stolen Rm$100 billion
Deepak bongkar pembunuhan Altantuya
KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin does not discount the possibility that police will ask businessman Deepak Jaikishan to give a statement over his allegations linking Najib Razak (BN-Pekan) and his wife Rosmah Mansor to the murder of Mongolian interpreter Altantuya Shaariibuu.
He said if there is any new information, the ministry can then take further action.
“We can call Deepak to give a statement. The police will take the necessary action if it is needed to get more information on Altantuya’s murder,” he said while wrapping up his ministry’s 11th Malaysia Plan mid-term review.
He was replying to Ramkarpal Singh (PH-Bukit Gelugor) who said the revelations were made by Deepak in an online interview a few days ago. Ramkarpal said the recording had since been deleted.
Ramkarpal said what Deepak brought up in the interview was important to the case as it could pinpoint the motive behind the murder of the Mongolian model.
Yesterday, Ramkarpal had also highlighted the same issue at the Dewan Rakyat, stating Deepak had linked the Pekan MP and his wife to the murder.
“This is important because it happened more than 10 years ago. Are the police so incompetent that they cannot investigate and determine who ordered the murder?”
Ramkarpal said appropriate action should be taken so that it was in keeping with “the rule of law” constantly stressed by the Pakatan Harapan government.
KUALA LUMPUR — A Member of Parliament has urged the Home Ministry to get statements from Pekan MP Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor in connection to the latest allegations that they were involved in the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case
Ramkarpal Singh (PH-Bukit Gelugor) said the revelations were made by businessman J. Deepak who was previously said to enjoy good ties with the couple in an interview which was uploaded on to the internet recently, but the recording has since been deleted.
He said what Deepak brought up in the interview was important to the case as it could pinpoint the motive behind the murder of the Mongolian model.
“Deepak had clearly stated that Pekan was involved in the murder (of Altantuya), he said Pekan and his wife were directly involved, that was Deepak’s statement.
“This is important because it happened more than 10 years ago. Is the Royal Malaysia Police so incompetent that they could not investigate and determine who ordered the murder?” he asked when debating the 11th Malaysia Plan Mid-Term Review at the Dewan Rakyat sitting today.
Commenting further, Ramkarpal who represented Altantuya’s family in their civil suit at the Shah Alam High Court which will be heard in January, said Rosmah should have lodged a police report if what Deepak exposed in the interview were untrue.
“This serious revelation was not answered by Pekan’s wife, she did not lodge a police report (or) do anything to deny the serious allegations, this is a lead which could solve (the question of the) motive behind Altantuya’s case,” he said, adding that police should take Deepak’s statement.
