KUALA LUMPUR: Anuar Shaari, a former aide to opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, has demanded fSubang member of parliament R. Sivarasa make public the relationship between the opposition leader and carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan.
Anuar alleged that his former boss, Deepak and Sivarasa had met last month where Anwar had promised to settle Deepak's financial woes in return for his defamation of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
"I want Sivarasa to confirm whether or not he, Anwar and Deepak had met at the end of last month in the house of one Datuk Ravindrun.
"The house is at No. 27, Tropicana Utama, Petaling Jaya."
He also wanted Sivarasa to confirm whether or not Anwar had promised to settle all of Deepak's loans with Kuwait Finance House if he agreed to be part of a conspiracy to defame the prime minister.
"Is it true that Anwar had ordered Sivarasa to defend Deepak in the Awan Megah case trial so that Deepak could read out the script written to paint the prime minister in a bad light in court?" he asked in a press statement.
"If this is true, we want to know where did Anwar obtain the money to settle Deepak's loans and help to prevent him from becoming a bankrupt.
"If its true, then he should also help to settle the loans of other Parti Keadilan Rakyat members."
Deepak had recently claimed that he was involved in getting a witness in the murder case of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, to retract his statutory declaration.
