‘BN wouldn’t dare prosecute me’

While admitting he had not been an “angel” in the past, Deepak said he was not interested in getting immunity from the present government as they will not dare to prosecute him.

“For the present government, in order to prosecute me, they will have to prosecute themselves because all the evidence will point to themselves,” he said.

Presently, Deepak said he did not approve of PKR’s expose concerning him as they were not accurate as only he had complete documentary evidence.

The businessperson, who is closely linked to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his family, had previously attacked PKR director of strategy Rafizi Ramli for trying to score political points with the expose.However, Deepak conceded that he may not have been clear in what he meant when asking for support from the opposition, explaining that all he wanted was for protection.“We have a common goal but we must work together, we can’t be coming from various directions because it confuses the public.“I appeal to Anwar, I have the facts, I have the complete documentary evidence, please allow me to work together with a senior member of your team who has experience in divulging this in a consistent and proper manner based on facts and documents,” he said.Deepak had since November last year made a serious of corruption allegations against Najib, including allegedly paying off the premier’s family for a land deal and getting private investigator P Balasubramaniam to reverse his statutory declaration linking Najib to murdered Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu.Malaysiakini had attempted to get a response from the premier’s wife Rosmah Mansor who was also implicated by Deepak, but was blocked by bodyguards. Najib has also yet to respond to the allegations.-MALAYSIAKINI
