Malaysian police seized 284 boxes containing designer handbags and dozens of bags filled with cash and jewellery from a private residence linked to former Prime Minister Najib Razak on Friday morning.

The items were carted out of a luxury condominium during pre-dawn hours, and included “jewellery, watches and other valuables”, police said.

“Exactly how much jewellery, I would not be able to say, because we know that we confiscated bags containing jewellery and the number of jewellery is rather big,” Amar Singh, director of police commercial crime investigations, said in a brief presser at the scene recorded by local online channel Star TV.

Singh said police have carried out raids on six premises, which include the prime minister’s office and the prime minister’s official residence in Putrajaya and four private residences linked to the former premier.

Singh earlier confirmed with Reuters that the raids on the premises are related to an investigation into a multi-billion scandal involving the Najib-founded state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Malaysia’s newly-elected Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has barred Najib and his wife, Rosmah Mansor, from leaving the country. At least six countries, including the United States, are investigating 1MDB. Najib denies any wrongdoing. (Reuters)

    Malaysia is a top income country with GDP per capita closing on $20,000 but still they have corruption. Sri Lankans think that corruption is a problem only in Sri Lanka.

    Damith Friday, 18 May 2018 12:49 PM

    Just because corruption is present in other countries, its okay for LK. Take a look on corruption to GDP ratio. its the same as saying rape is rampant in other developed countries, so you think rape is a problem only in sri lanka.

    WTF Friday, 18 May 2018 01:17 PM

    Hey Dummy, EVERY country has corruption. Does this mean it’s ok?

    And Mahinda did not have any apartments, houses, islands or even a car. The car he uses is given by the state as he is a former president. He is not a saint but 100% better than some crooks ruling some other countries.

    Dhammika Friday, 18 May 2018 12:39 PM

    MR ? . What about GR , BR , NR and all the family money ADDED will be several times of what this Malaysian former PM has? .

    shane Friday, 18 May 2018 01:07 PM

    You Sir are an IDIOT...!!

    Mahathir Mohammed is lucky that his personnel wealth wasn't investigated when he stepped down. His family is one of the most wealthiest families in Malaysia.

    cmbhh Friday, 18 May 2018 10:52 AM

    Smh Najib is such a novice.. Should've taken lessons from MARA on how to hide the loot

    voter Friday, 18 May 2018 01:16 PM

    He's not only a novice but unfortunately for him the present PM has a backbone unlike ours who has underhand dealings with the previous crooks.

    Lara Friday, 18 May 2018 10:52 AM

    Can we raid the house CBK own in Paris? I'm sure our GDP can be increased by 0.1% if we confiscate her belonging.

    Ajja Friday, 18 May 2018 01:16 PM

    Our Police couldn't find a single cent from former Presidents residence and we keep on calling him Hora...hora...hora...

    Sunil Friday, 18 May 2018 05:23 PM

    Our police are Big(Boss) Hora.......in our country.

    Buddhist Friday, 18 May 2018 05:59 PM

    Hope SL police too find the holdings of our former politicians the same way. Unfortunately in SL even those cases against politicians are being delayed by courts by extended postponements. What a shame.

    Jesus Friday, 18 May 2018 11:35 PM

    Why will racist Buddhist arrest another racist fromThe same race Lol

    Alexander Saturday, 19 May 2018 12:34 PM

    That man is very unlucky to be born in Malaysia. He deserves to be born here in our country. Then he could have been scot-free after committing such crimes, like some of the members of a big family and of JO.
