Ex-Malaysia PM to face graft probe as police seize jewellery, handbags

Cops raid the home of Najib

After nearly a full day of wondering why the police have been searching former prime minister Najib Razak's house, the reason has finally been revealed!

According to Mr Harpal, the safe had been locked for two decades because the key had been misplaced. "As of now, not a single document has been taken away. only a few boxes containing handbags, clothes and some personal items", he said.

Singh said police carried out simultaneous searches at six premises - the prime minister's office and official residence in the administrative capital of Putrajaya, the family mansion in Kuala Lumpur where Najib lives, and three other private residences.

He also questioned the timing of the search, which "denied the right" of Mr Najib's family and staff to properly conduct their religious obligations before the opening of fast on the first day of Ramadan.

"The police have their standard operating procedure".

The revelations quicken Najib's already precipitous fall since his longtime ruling coalition was unexpectedly trounced at national elections last week by a diverse alliance that had made his alleged corruption a central campaign theme.

It is learnt that another raid was also conducted simultaneously at luxury apartment that was recently reported to have been turned into a storage place for the plush handbags and accessories allegedly owned by Najib's wife Rosmah Mansor. "I suppose the police have enough reasons to raid", he said.

The commission had found evidence that about $US10.6 million ($A14.1 million) was transferred from 1MDB's former subsidiary, SRC International, to an account belonging to Najib, said a member of a panel which reviewed the commission case files.

However, the papers were ordered to be returned to CCID investigators each time by Attorney-General Tan Sri Apandi Ali for further evidence after citing there was lack of it to pursue the case.

On Tuesday, new Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he expected Najib would be charged following allegations that the former prime minister siphoned off hundreds of millions of USA dollars from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) fund.
