‘I am priceless, I cannot be bought’
He vows to continue on his mission to expose more dirt, especially against the Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor.
Teoh El Sen, FMT
Deepak Jaikishan has declared himself as someone who cannot be bought over or silenced in response to his sudden decision to withdraw a multi-million ringgit legal suit against a Wanita Umno leader yesterday.
“I cannot be bought. I am not for sale. I am priceless,” Deepak told FMT today.
Apart from the withdrawal of his suit againt Selangor Umno Wanita chief Senator Raja Ropiaah Abdullah, yesterday also saw a government investment company puchasing a 80% stake in a company in which he is a director, prompting many to believe Deepak has been bought over by the powers-that-be for his silence.
The carpet dealer claimed that he was forced to sell his company, Astacanggih Sdn Bhd for RM30 million to Boustead Holdings Bhd, saying that “very harsh conditions were imposed on me to keep quiet.”
But when asked, he did not reveal details of these conditions, and simply explained that he was given a “very nice love letter from the government” that threatened him with an “ultimatum” and very direct warnings.
He vowed that he would continue on his mission to expose more dirt, especially against Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor.
He said that he would be holding a press conference on Jan 1 in which he would launch his booklet “Black Rose” and documents to prove “you know who” gave payments to private investigator P Balasubramaniam.
Deepak said that the deal of RM30 million had only covered the money he had invested into the land deal gone sour with Awan Megah Sdn Bhd, linked to Raja Ropiaah, to which the court case was withdrawn.
“It is true that my shareholders and me have sold our shares in Astacanggih 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 an SMS message to the media today.
Deepak complained that the irony was that Raja Ropiaah, whom he claimed “stole” the land from his company, had gotten much more from the land deal.
“Why would I let it go at only RM30 million? I go home with the money I have actually invested. I am paid what I paid. Money given back to me. Raja Ropiaah, on the other hand, get’s RM130 million, what the %*&^… guess that is real power isn’t it,” he said, explaining that the market price for the 200 plus-acre-land is now RM400 million.
Defence Ministry the losers
He added that another irony was that the defence ministry was buying “their own land that they sold to Raja Ropiaah in the first place.”
“LTAT bought their own land which they sold to Raja Ropiaah for RM72.5 million at RM130 million, giving her a profit of RM57.5 million plus RM13 million from us and RM18 million from Guppyunip totalling RM88 million and 20 acres of land worth RM40 million.
“The losers are the defence minister and army officers who get cheated by Umno and cheating again by having to buy back the military land at double the price they sold it,” said Deepak in another SMS.
“Add all that up, and Raja Ropiaah is a very rich lady, maybe as rich as Shahrizat,” he said, adding that despite all that, the government seems to be listening to her and not the truth.
“Just because she is Umno. I guess very soon they will make statues of these people and ask us to pray to them like Gods. Because they have become above the law, they have become like immortals. Let’s work together and get these bastards.”
