KUALA LUMPUR: Police have recorded a statement from former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak over the inspections and raids carried out at three condominiums situated at Pavilion Residences here.
A police vehicle, believed to have been carrying CID officers from the Dang Wangi police headquarters, was seen leaving Najib’s residence in Langgak Duta at 1.40pm yesterday after being there for at least two hours.
Sources said the recording of the statement had initially been scheduled for Tuesday.
They said investigations were being carried out 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.
On Tuesday, police recorded a statement from Najib’s daughter Nooryana Najwa over the seizure of her personal belongings during the inspections in one of the three units.
Nooryana had lodged a report following her dissatisfaction with police action in inspecting and seizing several items which she claimed were her wedding gifts.
When contacted, Dang Wangi police chief ACP Shaharudin Abdullah confirmed that the police recorded Najib’s statement at his residence here yesterday. — Bernama
