KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 (Bernama) -- The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) conducted a raid at a private residence of former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak at a luxury condominium in Jalan Raja Chulan, here Thursday night.

Bukit Aman Commercial CID director Amar Singh Ishar Singh (picture), when contacted by Bernama, confirmed the matter.

“I can only confirm that we are carrying out a raid here, any progress will be announced later,” he said.

Najib and Rosmah have been blacklisted by the Immigration Department, and cannot leave the country.

Last Tuesday, Dr Mahathir said he expected charges to be filed against Najib following investigations into allegations against the former prime minister over the removal of hundreds of millions of US dollars from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) fund. (photoBERNAMA)
