Order for Altantuya murder came from Najib, Baginda was sexually impotent - Deepak claims Featured

SD 1 (statutory declaration 1) was written by Bala upon the request and promises made by his friends & lawyers. He was also advised on the content by senior Pakatan leaders who are also lawyers like Sivarasa and others.

Due to the proximity to the September 16 deadline set by DSAI (Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim), it was not just a coincidence that Bala SD 1 happened in July of the same year, the BN MPs especially in Sabah were demoralized by Pak Lah (Abdullah Badawi) and DSAI knew that politically this was the perfect time for him to take over the Government through the defections of MPs especially from Sabah.

Anyway Pakatan had won the majority votes in the 2008 GE and the majority of the voters wanted this change to happen, it was important however for DSAI to expose the wrongdoing of the DPM& his wife and their direct involvement in the Altantuya murder case as in the event Pak Lah was to resign before September 16, Najib would come in as PM and lift the morale of the BN MPs thus preventing the September 16 to become a reality.

Instructions to kill Altantuya came from the then DPM
It's important to note that the exposure of the Altantuya murder was also planned to coincide with the confession of one of the participants on the night of the gruesome C4 incident. This person had actually prepared a SD to confirm that he had:-

a) been instructed to commit the crime by his immediate superior
b) His immediate superior had taken instructions from the then DPM
c) This person changed his mind only after SD 2 was published

Rosmah told me to remove spicy details: Baginda "tak boleh erect"
Now although I believe DSAI should not have been directly sitting beside Bala when SD 1 was made, I know for a fact that all monies paid to Bala was from a lawyer known to Pakatan at that time and that Bala was paid to recover monies that he was promised by Razak Baginda for his services which was never paid by Baginda.

Now SD 2 was instructed by Datin Rosmah to me to remove certain facts & certain "spicy" details in the affair between Najib & Altantuya, I honestly don't know whether Altantuya was pregnant and with whose baby but I do know that Razak Baginda was chosen to "take care' of her for Najib not because Najib trusted him but the truth be told, Razak Baginda is actually impotent and I don't mean important but "IMPOTENT" as in "tak boleh errect"

As explained in great detail previously, the changing of SD 1 to SD 2 was successful but the events thereafter were chaotic, I guess because the Spirit of Altantuya was angry as a serious miscarriage of Justice had been done and unfortunately I got dragged in to this murky event just to help a friend but paid the price with losing my peace of mind and image over the last 5 years.

Bala was promised RM 3,000,000.00 by Najib's brother Nazim but was only paid a portion, he repeatedly called me and Nazim's friend but did Datin Rosmah did not allow me to get involved with him anymore nor was Nazim allowed to also.

Had Rosmah & Najib just kept their word to Altantuya & Bala and paid them this small sum all this would never have happened but I guess sheer arrogance and greed ruled as they thought as PM they had "super power" and demi god status. Alas for them demi god they may be today in Malaysia but the almighty is very angry with them and yang Maha Berkuasa is "ALLAH" not this husband & wife.

Be "very careful": PM wanted to silence me
After Bala's endless PCs and media exposure, I was called to come to MACC to be investigated. I informed Datin Rosmah about this and she told me to delay them for a week or so, which I did. Imagine to my utter shock that the Income Tax Department sent about 50 officers to my office, house, factories and other addresses to "RAID" my business and carted away 6 lorries full of Files & Documents

Then I realized that the PM wanted to silence me, get all my documents and proof of payments and not to tell the truth about SD 2 to the MACC and Police, I called Datin Rosmah regarding the LHDN matter and she feigned ignorance saying that she did not know anything about it and had no control over them.

I met her the next morning in her house in Jalan Duta and she told me to be "very careful" with what I disclose to MACC as many officers and directors in MACC are pro opposition and will use my testimony to create problems for her husband.

90% of all problems in Malaysia caused by Indians!
Datin Rosmah asked me to deny knowing Bala and deny being involved in SD 2, she also told me not to worry as no one will believe Bala as he was Indian and as such known to be not credible.

I told her Datin, I am also Indian, how can you expect me to say that and her reply was as quoted " Deepak, 90% of all the problems caused in Malaysia are by 10% of your Indian community", the MACC won't believe him and anyway her husband had already spoken to the DG to keep this matter silent and let it remain off the radar.

Of course I was upset with her statement about my Indian ethnicity but with the Income Tax matter and other business I was involved with at that time, I decided to remain silent on this although her words are still embedded in my heart. Datin Rosmah should look at the list of successful Indians in the United States & Europe and realize that the Indians if given a level playing field, will do well anywhere under the Sun as we are both intelligent and hard working people.

MACC did not dare to act
Going back to the SD 2, my testimony to MACC was based on instructions of Datin Rosmah due to the dominate she had over me at that time.

I have taken steps to inform MACC of the truth in 2011 through my meeting with Dato' Jamidan who is a senior Director with MACC at his office with evidence of payments made from proceeds of Glomac Tower to a subsidiary of Kuwait Finance House made to Dato Najib & Datin Rosmah and he has recorded all this statements both by video and my written statements but to date no action have been taken against either of them.

I wonder what is left of the credibility of our enforcement institution, like the Police & MACC that have all become tools of Najib & Family Incorporated.
Even in Indonesia the Anti Corruption bureau is independent. Will Malaysia continue to be controlled by these 2 people??? Have everyone become LAME DUCKS in front of the SITTING DUCK & THE WITCH.

(Deepak Jaikishan is a former close friend of Rosmah Mansor, the wife of Prime Minister Najib Razak who was the Deputy Prime Minister at the time of Bala's controversial  statutory declarations made in 2008. Both Najib and Rosmah have denied ever knowing Altantuya, who was murdered in Malaysia in 2006 allegedly due to her threat to expose the Najibs and Razak Baginda for purported corruption in the federal government's purchase of two Scorpene submarines worth some RM7.3bil.)

William Leong: Najib would be livid if he knew Oppan Gangnam Style’s subversive message

If Dato Sri Najib Tun Razak was red-faced by the crowd’s resounding “No!” to his “Are you ready for BN” question at the BN Chinese New Year Open House, he would be livid to know the song of his star attraction, “Oppan Gangnam Style” pokes fun at the rich, the wannabes and ruling establishments such as the BN. The first message in the hit video is the ostensible parody of imposters and wannabes. The second message is a hidden subversive protest against inequitable policies of ruling governments.

The 1.3 billion YouTube viewers of Psy’s “Oppan Gangnam Style” may have been attracted by the catchy song, horse riding dance moves and silliness but few, including Najib, may not have realized that “Gangnam Style” is a social and political satire.

Psy has a political following. The song has been appropriated in North Korea to ridicule South Korea’s ruling conservative party. The parody Yushin style refers to the Yushin system of autocratic rule introduced by South Korean President Park Chun-hee. The song has other political champions, UN Chief Ban Ki-Moon is said to have declared the song a force for world peace[1]

The parody on imposters and wannabes acting like the rich and famous of Seoul’s richest and flashiest neighbourhood is obvious from the first scene. Psy is reclined on a sunny beach of what looks like an exotic resort until it is revealed he is actually in the sand box of a children’s playground. In looking for high living, he ends up in a cheap sauna with gangsters and pimps. He appears to be swimming in an exclusive club but is really in a common bath house. He is looking for a girlfriend but goes to an irreverent place like under a bridge. So, the song is a comic satire about people who bluff, pretending to be rich and trendy when they are not. When the old and wise, such as the two old men playing chess under the bridge, see through the façade they get blown up and the pretender has to run away.

Psy is making fun of people who are vain and materialistic. Most Koreans are fed up with the “nouveaux rich” in Gangnam. Many are the princelings of the new rich. It has been said the haves in Gangnam are so materialistic and philistine that they hardly have a real organic relationship with the world outside Gangnam. Just as much as the have-nots admire the wealth, status and lifestyle of those in Gangnam, the rich look down on the have-nots outside. Thus Psy is being sarcastic and taking the Mickey out of those who are enamored by the idea of “Gangnam Style.”[2] The scorn by the poor for the excesses of the rich is universal hence “Gangnam Style’s” global success.    

It is ironic that Najib and BN in trying to win the hearts and minds of Malaysian voters are using a song teaching the public to reject those who pretend to be what they are not. The song reminds the public to reject the excesses of the powerful and privileged. These are the very images BN have been desperately trying to shrug off as they prepare for the coming polls.

Park Jaesang’s second more subtle subversive message is a protest about the growing income gap between the rich and the poor.[3] Gangnam is the wealthiest, most powerful and privileged single district in South Korea. It is described as 15 square miles in Seoul where Silicon Valley, Wall Street, Beverly Hills, Manhattan’s Upper East Side and Miami Beach are all rolled into one. It is the headquarters of Korea’s largest corporations, from Samsung to Hyundai, host of the bulk of the financial and banking institutions, home to a great number of its elected national officials and preferred home of movie and pop stars. Gangnam is a symbol of Korea’s success where it is the home for some of South Korea’s biggest brands, as well as $84 billion in wealth as at 2010. The kids in the neighbourhood are not Silicon Valley self-made millionaires. They are sons of the new rich and princelings.  

If all the heirs of America’s most profitable corporations lived in one district and went to the same school that would be in Gangnam. If the most subway lines and national bus routes converged in one location, again that would be in Gangnam. Imagine if 41% of Harvard University’s undergraduates came from one single neighbourhood, this would be Gangnam.

None of this happened by chance. It was by deliberate government policies since the 1970s. By 2008, South Korea was number 3 in income disparity among OECD countries and the income disparity has not lessened. Times have only gotten tougher for the poorest in South Korea, but the wealthiest 20 percent have seen a rise of more than 20 percent in their disposalable income.

This is why Psy in the video goes to town on the yoga classes, stables, party buses and tennis courts. He is showcasing forms of leisure that are not accessible to most Koreans. Seoul has the distinction of being the city where the people work the most hours a year among all OECD countries, at 2111 hours in 2010, more than 50 working days over the OECD average. For blue- collar workers, a 12 hour day is normal. More than half the workforce finds employment in contractual and temporary labour. For young professionals, getting out of the office before 10 or 11pm is a rarity.[4]
In the 1990s’ the Korean government made borrowing easier and encouraged private spending to climb out of the Asian Financial crisis. One of the effects of the Korean government’s policies is the high household debt. Korea has the highest household debt in Asia. It is a staggering 155 percent of Koreans’ disposable income.

Psy’s Oppan Gangnam Style video portrayed Gangnam as a symbol of South Korea’s national aspirations and policies as nothing more than materialism and about people chasing rainbows. Psy is latching on to the backlash among South Korean youth that the government may have push the nation to make extraordinary gains in terms of GDP and income generation but the growth and income distribution has not been equitable. One of the South Korean commentators on the video said there is a huge amount of resentment among the youth about their economic circumstances. Psy in writing the song and shooting the video is depicting the contemporary mood of the tension among Korean youth realizing where they are at, how they got there and what they need to do to move forward.

The refrain from the song finds a resonance in Malaysia because our household debt at RM677 billion is the second highest in Asia after South Korea. While our household debt at 78% of the GDP may not be exceptionally high, it is of concern because when household debt is compared to our disposable income it is 140%. It is clear that there is cause for concern when we compare to the other countries. USA was at about 135% just before the sub-prime crisis, Thailand is 53%, Indonesia 38% and Singapore 101%. This is one of the reasons Malaysians are struggling as household debts soars.[5] Some of the reasons for the high household debt in Malaysia are the high price of cars which is a necessity because of poor public transport, high price of houses and low income or wages.

ERA Consumer Malaysia and FOMCA reported in the November 2012 issue of the Ringgit that a recent survey found 47% of the young workers and professionals have serious debt problems. More than 30% of their monthly income or salaries are used to pay loans for housing, car, personal loans and study loans. 37% of the respondents admitted that their monthly expenditure exceeded what they can afford. One of the problems revealed in the survey is that many have to borrow a substantial sum to hold the wedding ceremony and functions. The eventual financial stress is the reason for the high incidence of divorces among young couples.[6] The effect of borrowing beyond their means is bankruptcies. Malaysia has seen an increase in the number of bankruptcies in recent years.      
The South Koreans’ complain about income inequality in the video is shared by Malaysians. The BN government’s policies of direct intervention in business have produced a small group of very rich; some 22 billionaires while many others are barely scrapping by. According to statistics the income inequality gap is a major problem in Malaysia. 

·         The bottom 40% of households have an average income of RM1,222 while the top 20% earn an average of RM8,157;

·         58% of the households earn less than RM3,000 per month in 2009 and that 7.3 million Malaysians qualified for BR1M 2.0;

·         Since the 1990s, income growth has only been strong for the top 20% while it has stagnated for the rest at 2.6% for the past 10 years.

The Gini coefficient is the measurement of income inequality where 0 represents absolute equality and 1 represents absolute inequality. The Malaysian Gini Coefficient in 1990 was 0.442 and this increased to 0.462 in 2004 which means that the income disparity gap had widened. It has dropped back to 0.441 in 2007 which means that there has been no improvement in resolving this problem since 1990.[7] Malaysia’s income inequality is second only to Papua New Guinea in the Asia Pacific region. 

Psy’s message of income inequality and social injustice in Gangnam Style are themes that form Anwar Ibrahim’s daily ceramahs throughout Malaysia. Anwar has been speaking about Malaysia’s problems on good governance, social and economic injustice to the thousands that throng his rallies. Anwar Ibrahim has lamented the glaring income gap many times in his speeches and brought home the point in his opening address at the Tokyo Conference on “Globalization: Inequality and Social Justice”. Anwar said that globalization has generated great wealth but the benefits have come with a heavy price-glaring inequality. He said that the growing inequality of economic outcomes within developed and developing countries are like “ticking time bombs” that must be defused by prescriptions with emphasis on social justice and economic equity.[8] Anwar’s message like Park Jaesang’s have struck a chord with the people the resonance of which will see a tidal wave in 2013 stronger than 2008.  

Park Jaesang’s message in Oppan Gangnam Style may be fun but it sounds more like Anwar’s message of social justice and economic equity. It’s a far cry from Najib’s sanctimonious rhetoric on 1Malaysia while corruption, crime, cost of living and income inequality soar unchecked. Najib’s words just ring hollow like the wannabes Psy is mocking. His furtive call asking whether the people are ready to accept BN was rightly answered by a roar in the negative.

As the people dance to Psy’s sensational hit, my comment on the meaning of Gangnam Style would be remised if I do not refer to the symbol of the horse riding movement. Psy spent 30 nights without sleep to come out with this move. The horse is the universal symbol of freedom without restrain, because riding a horse make people feel they could free themselves from the restrains that bind them. The horse riding movements in Oppan Gangnam Style may just put Malaysians into the mode to break free from BN’s rule and put the people back on the saddle.

The next time BN invites an entertainer to boost their votes they better not horse around.
