This is Umno culture. If you want to bring down someone powerful or very power in Umno, you wait for their General Assembly and then drop a bombshell!
They tried to do this to Anwar Ibrahim when he was their deputy president with a book entitled 'Lima Puluh Dalil Kenapa Anwar Tak Layak Menjadi Perdana Menteri' (Fifty Reasons Why Anwar Is Not Fit To Become The Prime MInister)
This time, what carpet businessman Deepak Jaikishan has revealed is nothing short of a TNT bomb, because it implicated Umno's very top man!
Deepak admitted in the Free Malaysia Today report that he was involved in the second statutory declaration (SD) of Balasubramanian which overturned the latter's first SD which had originally implicated the Pm in the death of Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaaribu.
Deepak's revelation is stunning!
Malaysians are wondering why Deepak, who was considered a dear friend of Najib's family, would suddenly turn around and drop the bombshell.
Many believe that Deepak would not have the courage to do this unless there was someone very, very powerful behind him. And he himself had admitted that he needed protection.
So, who is that someone, or how the Malays would put it - siapakah dalang? And why ?
All of us have our own views. But I divert.
Deepak's allegation is serious as it involved the Pm himself!
Najib should deny Deepak's allegation or better still, explain himself.
Who wanted Altantuya dead is still a mystery because the trial into her death turned out to be unsatisfactory itself, as the court never delved into the motive as to why she was murdered. In fact, the court had held that motive was not relevant.
But Malaysians are asking why a police inspector and a corporal would just have her C4ed to death for no apparent reason or rhyme.
In fact, the murder of the Mongolian beauty seems to have been connected with the procurement of two Scorpene submarines and allegations of corruption involved in their procurement that had allegedly involved people high up in the government.
It has even led Suaram to initiate an investigation into possible corrupt practice in the procurement of the two submarines in a French court that is currently on-going, because our local anti-corruption body MACC did not want to pursue the matter or had closed their investigation.
Now it seems the French judges investigating into the matter may even come to Malaysia in the Scorpene submarine probe
And they may even want the full record of the Altantuya murder trial to help them in the process
