KUALA LUMPUR – More than 30 media personnel gathered outside the residence of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at Jalan Langgak Duta, Taman Duta here following rumours that he will be arrested tonight.
However, Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department Director Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh when contacted had refuted the rumours.
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull when contacted said that there would be “no raid or arrest”.
Bernama’s survey found that the former prime minister’s residence was still under strict surveillance by police personnel with a mobile police station based there.
Earlier, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he expected Najib to be charged over the loss of billions of ringgit from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) fund.
The former prime minister was also being investigated by the MACC over SRC International Sdn Bhd, another company involved in the 1MDB issue.
Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor have also been blacklisted by the Immigration Department and cannot leave the country. – BERNAMA
