Malaysia: Expect Arrest of Najib within Days

Several personal items such as handbags, clothes and gifts were seized from the home of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at his personal residence in Jalan Langgak Duta, Taman Duta here early today. "He said Najib and his family extended their cooperation throughout the nearly six-hour search", he said.

"The police did not say what case the investigation was about".

He added that they were considered "searches" and not raids, according to The Star.

The other locations also searched are believed to be Najib's house in Taman Duta, Sri Perdana, two places at Pavillion KL, and the Prime Minister's Office.

The police also searched another private residence of Najib, a luxury apartment in Jalan Raja Chulan.

While no documents were seized at Najib's bungalow, police said documents were seized at a different location.

However no documents were taken, Najib's lawyer Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal told reporters after exiting the house at about 4.20 am.

Sources said the search was initiated following investigations on the financial scandal of state-owned investment arm 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) went full swing on Tuesday.

This followed after 16 police vehicles and a truck were seen entering Najib's residence at around 10.15 pm last night.

Bernama's efforts to reach the area to conduct coverage failed when several policemen acted to prevent the reporter and confiscated her phone to erase the recorded photos during the operation.

Police however have remained tight-lipped over the nature of the investigations.

Bukit Aman's Commercial Crime Department director Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh had said that the operation was focused on searching for items.
