Deepak lights up the periphery of darkness
COMMENT The web of entanglement spun by disclosures over the past week by businessman Deepak Jaikishan threatens to suck a senior lawyer and his son, also a lawyer, into its vortex.
Though the disclosures are just as menacing to the career of Umno president and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, he inhabits a deep no-affect belt on which the police, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the attorney-general are loath to encroach.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
