KUALA LUMPUR — May 18, 2018: Police early this morning seized 72 bags of jewellery, lots of cash and valuables at a luxury condominium at the Pavilion Residences believed to be linked to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) investigations.

Another 284 boxes containing branded bags were also taken away.

Federal police Commercial Crime (CCID) director Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh said the value of the goods could not be ascertained for now as the amount was massive.

The CCID has so far inspected six premises related to the investigations linked to former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak — the PM’s Office, official residence and four private residences. The search at the PMO found documents relating to 1MDB.

The search at the luxury residences had the required search warrant and was completed within two-and-a-half hours.

The unit where the cash and the luxury items were found belongs to a tan sri but Amar Singh would not reveal the identity.

He also said that the safe at Najib’s residence in Taman Duta was still being drilled to be opened.

More details on all items seized so far, including from Taman Duta, will be given at the next police press conference on the investigations. — Bernama
