Deepak’s leave application over bid to reinstate lawsuit fixed for May 27


A suit filed by businessman JR Deepak Jaikishan, his brother and their company was struck out by the High Court on Jan 13, 2020.

PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Court has fixed May 27 to hear the application for leave to appeal by businessman JR Deepak Jaikishan, his brother and their company, in a bid to reinstate a lawsuit against Najib Razak, his wife Rosmah Mansor and three others over an alleged claim of conspiracy that they claimed resulted in them suffering losses.

The court will also hear Deepak’s application for leave to appeal another two lawsuits on the same day.

The date was fixed following a case management conducted today before Federal Court deputy registrar Noor Fadzlin Abd Zawawi.

When contacted, lawyer David Matthews, who is representing Najib and Rosmah, confirmed the hearing date.

On April 29, this year, the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal brought by Deepak, J Rajesh and Radiant Splendor Sdn Bhd to reinstate the lawsuit against Najib, Rosmah, former Tabung Haji chairman Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, Najib’s brother Ahmad Johari Abdul Razak and Najib’s former principal private secretary Shukry Mohd Salleh.

Their suit which was filed in September 2018, was struck out by the High Court on Jan 13, 2020.

Deepak, Rajesh and Radiant Splendor filed the suit against the former prime minister, Rosmah, Abdul Azeez, Johari and Shukry, claiming that the defendants had committed tort of conspiracy, fraud, malfeasance and abuse of process and sought general damages.

They claimed that on Shukry’s instruction, they had signed an agreement, dated July 24, 2008, with Bank Kerjasama Rakyat Bhd, giving up their absolute rights and interest in 80 apartment units at Condominium Palazzio Tower B in return for financing facilities of up to RM198,888,750.

Deepak claimed it was to prevent him from testifying in a civil case involving the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Deepak also filed a suit against Bakti Wira Development Sdn Bhd, Najib, Rosmah and Boustead Holdings Bhd involving a land deal that he alleged caused huge losses to his company.

On Oct 8, last year, the Court of Appeal affirmed the striking out of the suit.

The other suit was against Cebur Megah Development Sdn Bhd. - FMT
