KUALA LUMPUR, May 30 – Police have recorded former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak’s statement pertaining to the inspections and raids on three residential units at the Pavilion Residences here on May 18.
A police vehicle, believed to be carrying CID officers from the Dang Wangi Police Headquarters was seen leaving Najib’s residence in Langgak Duta at 1.40pm today after being there for two hours. Sources said that the recording of statement process was initially scheduled yesterday.
He said investigations were being done after Najib lodged a police report in Pekan, Pahang, recently, over the seizure of personal belongings and valuables during the police raids at the luxury residences. Yesterday, police recorded the statement from Najib’s daughter over the seizure of her personal belongings during the inspections on one of the three residential units.
Police had reportedly recorded the statement from the former prime minister’s daughter, Nooryana Najwa, or better known as Gina, after she lodged a report following her dissatisfaction with the police’s action in inspecting and seizing several items which she claimed to be her wedding gifts.
Dang Wangi Police chief ACP Shaharudin Abdullah, when contacted, confirmed that the police had recorded Najib’s statement at his residence here today. Bernama checks found that 20 members of the press had been staking out near the entrance of the residence since early morning. Two vehicles believed to be carrying Najib’s lawyers were also seen entering the compound of the residence at noon. — Bernama
