Police search scandal-tainted Malaysian ex-premier's home

Police search scandal-tainted Malaysian ex-premier's home

At least a dozen police vehicles converged on Najib's family compound in the capital Kuala Lumpur in the early hours, with a number of officers entering the home, an AFP journalist saw.

A lawyer for Najib, who was ousted from office in last week's general election, said police seized handbags and a few other personal items from Najib's home in connection with a money laundering probe.

However, no documents were taken, according to Najib's lawyer Harpal Singh Grewal.

However, the Deputy Prime Minister stood her ground and declined the offer, because it was already agreed by PH that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad would become the prime minister if they won the election.

Najib's wife Rosmah Mansor, deeply unpopular due to her reported love of costly overseas shopping trips, was known to have a vast collection of designer clothes and handbags. The release of Anwar came soon after the historic win of Mahathir in recent elections.

$4.5 billion was stolen and laundered by Najib's associates, some of which landed in his bank account.

Mahathir has barred Najib from leaving the country pending investigations.

Almost $700 million was reportedly found in Najib's personal bank accounts, which a royal Saudi family member said was a personal donation.

As Mahathir officially took up office on Monday, a complaint against Najib was lodged with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commisison (MACC) by Abdul Razak Idris, its former investigations and intelligence director.

"I call on all federal public service personnel, state public services, federal and state statutory bodies and local authorities to further carry out their responsibilities in delivering their service to the people while staying loyal to king, country and the elected government", he said. The police started the search after Najib returned home from prayers at a mosque to mark the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Anwar's release captivated the nation, with ecstatic supporters and journalists mobbing him and shouts of "Reformasi" (Reform) - his rallying cry - ringing out as his motorcade raced through the streets.

Mahathir has said he expects to run the government for up to two years during an uncertain transition period but has signalled the reins would be turned over to Anwar, who lost his parliament seat with his criminal conviction.

His case has gripped Malaysia for two decades.

He was released after six years and helped to unite a hapless opposition but was thrown in prison again in 2015 in what critics said was another effort to neutralise him as a political threat.
