Deepak tells Ropiaah to quit as senator to save Umno

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 30 — Controversial businessman Deepak Jaikishan wants Senator Datuk Raja Ropiaah Abdullah to quit her parliamentary post to save Umno from being embarrassed by her cheating case.
“In order to save Umno, I am asking her to quit as senator,” he told The Malaysian Insider in a telephone call.
He is suing the Selangor Wanita Umno chief”s Awan Megah (M) Sdn Bhd for criminal breach of trust  in the sale of 223.33 acres of land in Bukit Raja. The civil case was heard yesterday.
Deepak (picture, top) had named Awan Megah together with the Ministry of Defence, government land unit Syarikat Tanah Dan Harta Sdn Bhd and Cebur Megah Development Sdn Bhd in his lawsuit for allegedly cheating him out of millions in a land deal. But the trial judge had already struck off the government, Ministry of Defence and Cebur Megah from the lawsuit and her judgment has been upheld by the Court of Appeal earlier.
Deepak’s Astacanggih Sdn Bhd had agreed to buy three parcels of landin 2007 for RM13 million and a RM72 million bank guarantee for a land bond from Raja Ropiaah, who was awarded a RM100 million privatisation deal for the development of the defence research centre called Pusat Pengajian Pertahanan Nasional (Puspahanas).
The land was supposed to be placed in a special purpose company called Cebur Megah as government rules does not allow land in privatised projects to be sold by the winning party. The land is still in government hands as the defence project has yet to take off.
The Selangor Wanita Umno chief had allegedly sold one parcel for RM2 million in cash and a RM16 million overdraft facility in a “joint venture” with Guppyunip Sdn Bhd, a company specialising in plasticware, prompting the carpet dealer to put a caveat on the land in Bukit Raja and lodge a police report last July.
