Santamil-SelviDeepakKUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has allowed an application by the widow of private investigator P Balasubramaniam, whose family was allegedly forced to leave Malaysia in 2008, to cross-examine businessman Deepak Jaikishan over the filing of two conflicting defences.

On March 2, lawyers for A Santamil Selvi would also be allowed to question Deepak whether he voluntarily retained legal firm Shafee & Co to represent him in the suit.

Lawyer Chan Kay Ding said Justice Hue Siew Kheng allowed both applications when she delivered her ruling in chambers today.

“The cross-examination is limited to which of the two conflicting defences Deepak had intended to file and whether Shafee & Co had the authority to represent him,” Chan told reporters.

This means Deepak will give evidence under oath before he answers questions.
