Yesterday (11 June 2018), authorities raided a house that was allegedly linked to Dato’ Seri Najib Razak in Precinct 10, Putrajaya. According to reports, the raid was conducted by officers from the Federal CID’s Anti-Money Laundering team.
Today (12 June 2018), The Star revealed that the items seized from Najib’s “safe house” were mostly luxury items like;
- Designer handbags
- Branded shoes
However, a source explained that these items were “outdated” and looked like they were kept there for storage.
“The house was used like a storeroom, so the bags and shoes that were kept there were slightly older than those found in the previous raids,” said the source.
Wow, a whole house as a storeroom!
As of now, the police are still figuring out the estimated value of the seized luxury items. Keep your eyes peeled for the estimated value!
FYI, the “safe house” is located almost 200 metres from Seri Perdana, the official residence of Malaysia’s Prime Minister.
On the other hand, Bukit Aman CID’s Anti-Money Laundering division chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Khalil Azlan Chik confirmed that the raids were conducted as part of the 1MDB probe.
“We are looking into the money laundering aspect of the investigation,” he said as he refused to comment further on potential raids in the near future.
It looks like the police have got their hands full with raids that are connected to the 1MDB graft-scandal probe!
Well, we hope that they are able to find as much proof as they need to solve the 1MDB case and prosecute the wrongdoers. That said, the authorities are doing a great job as they try to get as much info as possible to solve the largest graft-scandal in history. Kudos to the police force!
