Bukit Aman has recorded the statement of businessman Deepak Jaikishan in connection with the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case.
Speaking to reporters this morning, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said they have recorded a statement from Deepak Jaikishan, who made the allegation that former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor were involved in the murder of Altantuya during an interview with Al-Jazeera recently.
“We will take all the necessary actions, including recording 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 questionings), as we need make an appointment, see the right time to interview him.
“We will solve this as soon as we can,” he said during a press conference.
While Fuzi did not elaborate who he meant by “him”, it is believed that he was referring to Najib.
“Once our investigation is complete, we will forward the investigation papers to the Deputy Public Prosecutor,” he said.
Yesterday (Oct 31), Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh said in the Dewan Rakyat that Deepak’s comments in a recent interview were important to the case as they could pinpoint the motive behind Altantuya’s murder.
“Deepak had clearly stated that Pekan was involved in the murder (of Altantuya),” Ramkarpal said.
The interview was uploaded on the Internet recently but the recording has since been removed.
Following this, Ramkarpal urged the police to bring in the Pekan MP and his wife for questioning.
Deepak previously enjoyed good ties with Najib and Rosmah.
